One of my most favorite ways to save time and money is with Evernote. Evernote is a FREE app that you can use on your desktop computer or your mobile device. It allows you to keep your notes, files and images in one place. You can jot down notes, take a photo of something you like and add audio to it or keep track of trip itineraries. You can clip snippets of information from websites. My favorite part is that you can sync your information between your computer and your phone and share information with other Evernote users. (Very useful for busy family members or busy offices!)
Here are a few of the ways I use Evernote:
I still have a paper and pencil planner (because I’m old-school like that), but I like having the option of an electronic to-do list when I’m out and about. I can check things off as I get things done right on my phone.
Evernote helps me keep track of my ideas grom blog post ideas to projects I want to do around the house. I love that I can snap a photo and add notes to it, add audio, or just clip something from the web that interested me. You can create tags for all your notes so that it makes them easy to find them when you need them.
When it was back-to-school time for our boys, I was able to upload a PDF of the boys’ school supply lists right to Evernote so that I would have it with me when I was shopping. In addition, I created a note of the things the clothing items the boys needed for school – complete with sizes – so that I could find just what we needed.
For those of you who shop for things like clothing and gifts all year-round, Evernote is a huge time and money saver. You can keep notes with the sizes, favorite colors, and gift ideas for everyone on your shopping list. It’s easy to cross things off your list, and you won’t have to worry about accidentally buying things you don’t need just because they are on sale.
Evernote is a simple, yet powerful app that has really helped me keep on top of things. And when you stay on top of things, you’re less likely to make mistakes that waste time or cost money.
