EVERNOTE MY NEW FAVORITE THING
If you have been reading this blog for any length of time you know I’m obsessed with organization and any of the tools that make it possible. I have uploaded almost every productivity system I have ever found online. For awhile I was singing the praises of Teux Deux, which is a fine TO DO list APP. I did have it as my screensaver for a spell, but then I found Evernote.
I kid you not Evernote is the greatest thing ever. There is nothing you cannot do with this system. You can make lists. You can send emails. You can add photos. It even has spell check!
It has an online clip system where you literally just “clip”any site you are on and it saves it to a note. This is so perfect for almost everything, from recipes to blogs or things you want to read later. You can clip the link of an article you want to send someone and send it straight from Evernote. You can clip receipts from purchases, online directions ANYTHING!!!! Just clip it and it makes a note out of it.
We have been talking a lot the last few weeks about blogging and getting our online lives together, this is the tool. You can write blogs on it. You can write a whole book on it. I just did a movie outline on it and then emailed six copies in one shot to everyone who needed it. No attachment, just an email. Genius!
You can also save photos in Evernote, and there is even a memory card you can buy called Eye -Fi that will send the pictures directly to your Evernote files. Insert photos into your notes and projects, or just use it as a way to organize and share your photos.
You can also save PDFs in Evernote, so you can scan documents and save them as PDFs, then file them away in your Evernote account.
I forgot to mention it’s free!
