I donâ€™t know about you but Iâ€™ve been drowning in paper for years!Â What art projects and tests do I keep from my children, recipes, sheets torn out of magazines, bills, tax returns, school awards and the list goes on and on. Â Recently, a friend of mine turned me onto Evernote.Â This was a big step for me.Â Twenty years ago, I could do anything computer related without a thought.Â Since Iâ€™ve been out of the workforce, it takes a lot for me to try to keep up with the ever-changing technology.Â Today, I have everything from recipes to school report cards to tax returns and everything in between organized with Evernote.Â I want to share two links with you that have really helped to simplify my life.
I want to warn you that Evernote for Moms is a $5.00 download purchase but it may be the best $5.00 Iâ€™ve spent in a long time.Â It gives someone that doesnâ€™t know where to begin a great framework to start using the program.
Evernote has a wonderful blog post called â€œTwelve Ways to Get Ready for Baby.â€Â This is a fantastic outline on how to manage all of the overwhelming information you need and receive when the baby is coming.
These days I do stay very organized with my Evernote.Â I keep trying to use it for my daily To Do lists but I have to admit itâ€™s a struggle.Â I am a notebook and pen kind of gal.Â Something about physically crossing out the item that I completed makes me smile.Â Evernote does have checkmark boxes but it just doesnâ€™t feel the same to me.Â However, I will keep trying!
Do you use Evernote?Â Do you have any good pointers?
