Default Poll: How do you keep track of upcoming auctions?

Today I noticed REA has an auction ending this Saturday. The only reason I found the date was because I happened to clean out my email spam folder. I knew there was an REA auction ending soon, but I would have completely missed the date if I hadn't cleared out my spam. This got me wondering, how does everyone remember all the auction dates?

Personally, I rely on AuctionReport.com, but today I found REA is not an advertiser. Why not? It seems like such a convenient service for bidders (especially forgetful ones like myself), but perhaps fewer people frequent the site then I originally thought. Does anybody else use this service? I would love to hear from some AH owners who frequent this site on which outlets they choose to advertise and which they choose to not. I can say right now, 95% of auctions I miss are because the date wasn't on the Auction Report calendar.

I stopped trying to keep track of them all, just read the main page and that seems to alert me to quite a few.

As the list of auction houses that you refuse to do business with grows, remembering closing dates becomes much easier.

I get so damn many EMs it's impossible NOT to know when they all are! Seems like some send an EM 2-3 times a day!

I keep track of auctions via an "Auction" email folder. There are thirty or so sub-folders, one for each AH I have ever dealt with (and there are an awful lot of them). I am alerted to upcoming auctions in any number of ways: receipt of a print catalog, email bombardment, heads-up posts at Net54, referral to the auction schedule at Old Cardboard, etc. By use of some file renaming tricks I sort auctions by their closing date. I also keep track of items won, date paid in the folder name as well as my user name and password (which I have painted out, you naughty boys). Kind of an anal system (you ought to see my eBay folder) but I tend not to miss auctions I don't want to miss and I have a pretty good "electronic trail" of correspondence, invoices etc.

Somewhere out in the Utah Salt Flats there's probably a server farm with my name on it. Kinda scary, ain't it?

Like many others, I get informed by many methods - emails from AHs and OC, catalogs, etc. But, I didn't vote in the poll because I couldn't choose more than one option.

Sadly, I don't, and subsequently miss out on most of them because I can't keep them all straight. I'm still waiting for someone to develop a tool that will allow me to search all auction sites with one search and track all of my watched items in all auctions all in one place. That would be dreamy....

You can at www.collectiblescentral.com , you register, you create a "Want List" emails will be sent you periodically telling you what has met your criteria. You can also look at all of your bidding when you go to My Account and you can search all current and past auctions from the search tool.
