The thing about guidelines is, the shop usually isn't as complicated as it appears on the first run-through. Exhibit A- USPS.

i usually make a checklist of things i absolutely need to get during the shop and I have it on a little note pad where I can jot things down if I'm sitting in the car, or i'll have a notepad app open on my phone and then i pretend to text a friend and write stuff in the notepad. my check list will have all the required things that I can easily forget, like person's name, description, timing, photo of interior, photo of exterior.
