Mompreneur’s Guide to Evernote

12 Ways to Use Evernote To Organize Your Life

Mompreneur Guide to EvernoteCall me old fashioned, but I’m a pen and paper girl at heart. I love writing in my journal and sending hand-written notes to friends. I rarely go to a meeting without my college ruled notepad or traditional composition book that I buy at Target for $1 after the back-to-school sales. There’s something that happens in my brain when I’m forming words on paper – and it just doesn’t happen when I type. That’s why I resisted going digital with my notes and lists for quite some time.

But Evernote won me over. I went digital with most – but not all – of my note taking and list making a couple of years ago. Why? Mostly because I live in a digital world and it’s easy to access my notes from wherever I am. But I also love the powerful tagging and searching functionality of Evernote. I don’t have to remember where I put a note or what I called it. And – you’re going to love this! – I can easily share my Evernote files with someone. Let’s say for example, I want my husband to stop at the grocery store on the way home. If he has access to my grocery list, it’s super easy for him!

I use Evernote to capture all of my ideas and document everything from my prayer list to meeting agendas. I use the tagging feature to easily find what I’m looking for. I scan photos, bookmark websites and attach files directly in Evernote. You can even set reminders and use the voice dictation feature.
