I don’t know about you but I’ve been drowning in paper for years! 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. Recently, a friend of mine turned me onto Evernote. This was a big step for me. Twenty years ago, I could do anything computer related without a thought. Since I’ve been out of the workforce, it takes a lot for me to try to keep up with the ever-changing technology. Today, I have everything from recipes to school report cards to tax returns and everything in between organized with Evernote. 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 I’ve spent in a long time. It gives someone that doesn’t know where to begin a great framework to start using the program.
Evernote has a wonderful blog post called “Twelve Ways to Get Ready for Baby.” 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. I keep trying to use it for my daily To Do lists but I have to admit it’s a struggle. I am a notebook and pen kind of gal. Something about physically crossing out the item that I completed makes me smile. Evernote does have checkmark boxes but it just doesn’t feel the same to me. However, I will keep trying!
Do you use Evernote? Do you have any good pointers?
