Ever used Evernote? Haha. I was dying to type that! Now that it’s out of my system, I can act like an adult.


Anyway, jokes aside, I recently signed up for Evernote and downloaded the iOS apps onto my phone and computer. I had heard so many wonderful things about it from friends who use it, so I decided to give it a try. I am huge on organizing my life in the “cloud” so to speak because I’m terrible at keeping paper notebooks going. I don’t carry a big enough purse for a planner and I’m always on my phone anyway. I’m a tech girl. I can’t help it!

I’m already a big fan of the plain ole’ “notes” app on iPhone and of the Clear app (which I blogged about here) but I’m still working on figuring out how to incorporate Evernote in what I do. Right now my favorite feature is being able to sort my notes into “Notebooks”. I have several right now, which is awesome. I used to scribble notes on every page in my paper notebook and then frustratedly flip through it looking for something specific related to my business…or to find my grocery list or something. Evernote reminds me of a Kindle, but for notebooks. Instead of carrying seven notebooks in my bag, they’re all on my phone, which I already take everywhere!!!


Now I need your help! I’m in search of tips on how to use Evernote better. Tell me what you use it for and why it makes your life better and I’ll give one random commenter a $10 Starbucks gift card in return. Make sure you comment with a valid email, because that’s what I’ll be using to contact you!

    I use Evernote to track my receipts for tax season! The “document camera” they have does an awesome job and I *try* to take pictures of my receipts right when I get them, in case I lose them or they fade really fast. I didn’t do a great job sorting them in 2014 but it’s so nice knowing they are all there, just in case!

    I do the same thing as Karen! I also sometimes use the Doc camera to take pictures of business cards and file them in their own notebook so I have a working file of those connections and not just random cards flying around everywhere. haha Evernote is seriously my lifesaver. 🙂
