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.
