Garden Tuesday Using Evernote and Skitch

Do you use Evernote?   It’s a web based app that you can use on the web, your phone, your Mac, your PC, or like I do – on all of the above.  Since it’s web based, your stuff is stored in the cloud, meaning that you can access it anywhere. 

It has a web clipping feature that allows you to save entire articles from websites, or just the URL.  Right now we are looking for a car, so I have a notebook called car buying – and in it, I clip all of the articles that I find on the cars that we are interested in. 

I take a picture of my receipts and store them in a receipt notebook.  Because it has an amazing search feature, I can immediately find when and how much I paid for something…no shuffling through a shoe box.

And it allows you take photos with your phone, and annotate them using a fun app called Skitch.  At first I couldn’t figure out how I would find Skitch useful, and then I thought up this! 

Every year, I buy a few new plants for my garden.  Every spring, I struggle trying to remember what I planted where and whether that cute little sprout is a plant or a weed.

Not any more.  Next year, when these plants pop up, I’ll know exactly what they were.  Or if they don’t pop up, I’ll know what didn’t work.  AND, when I am the garden nursery trying to decide what new plants to get, since this is on my iPhone, all I have to do is look at the photos and I won’t worry about getting repeats.


This post is not endorsed in anyway by Evernote or Skitch – I just use them and love them and wanted to share!

    I absolutely LOVE Evernote. I use Skitch integrated a bit too, but I use evernote at home and work. More at home for blogging and recipe development. I keep notes on my tablet while creating something and then refine it on the laptop as needed later. Best APP ever!
