Hello and thank you for consulting JA,

Well... now that the bird has flown from the nest, the consequence of forgetting things will fall on her. She will quickly learn to makes lists and use a daily reminder calendar. Be sure she has a good calendar book that has one page per day. When she sees her roommate using one, she may get "on-board".

Warm regards....

The only other thing is post it notes and you through them away as things get done.
You put the post it notes on dresser or bathroom mirror.
