This may be too hard-copy for the computer age but I have found it most helpful to keep a running notebook of the various critters I've kept over the years. Not only to keep a daily or weekly log of additions, changes, improvements, and set-backs, but to accumulate articles I just have to print out (sometimes forum threads), those I tear from magazines, etc. It's also a great place to keep receipts, equipment brochures and warranty cards, invoices, and so on.
I like the notebooks with clear vinyl covers into which I can insert my own pics, and ones that have inside pockets. And of course there are all sorts of great dividers, pocket inserts, etc., one can buy.
I took a pic of some of my notebooks, just to show you how wonky I am. From upper left clockwise they are SW nano, dart frogs, leaf chams, and tortoises. Maybe you can tell that the SW notebook is 3X as big as the others!
