How I Used Evernote to Recall a Band My Friend Told Me About

14I was making dinner the other night, thinking: "What was that band Jamile told me about when I visited her NYC?"

I opened my "Music to Listen To" note in my "Music" notebook and there it was.

You'll see that I have notes from many various sources.

How I Used Evernote to Capture My Video Recording Set Up

Last week, inspiration hit and I recorded 11 new YouTube videos in about two hours.

I found the perfect spot in my bedroom to achieve the clean white background I've been wanting and I want it to be exactly the same each time I record there.

I photographed my set-up (stool, 2 yoga blocks and a mini tripod) so I can remember exactly how to set up my "recording studio" for next time.

How I Used Evernote This Week to Save Lighting Ideas

In planning to paint my entire home white, I realize that now is the time to upgrade a lot of my lighting.  View my Light Shopping note in my "Home" notebook to see what's on my wish list.

Evernote is proving to be a great way to mood board the fixtures I'm eyeing. I've added screenshots of the ones I love the most to see how well they go together.

How I Used Evenote to Make Home Maintenance Easy

7How many times have you found yourself in the hardware store frustrated that you don't have the measurement you need for that gizmo at home that needs to be replaced? I had to replace my air filter, so in the air filter aisle, I simply pulled up my note "My Air Filter" in my "Home" notebook that reads 18" x 18". That's it.

How I used Evernote this week to Save a Precious Memory

6I'm slowly starting to fill the my Evernote "Memorabilia" notebook.

My sister recently visited someone's home that was covered in the, um, "distinctive" wallpaper that was in the house we grew up in.

My parents moved out of that house 8 years ago, so she was having a major de ja vu moment.

She texted me the pictures and I just had to save them since I don't know if I have any from our house!

How I Used Evernote This Week to Save A Graphic Design Example

One of my most-used tags in Evernote is "Examples to Use."

If you're a business owner, you too know that ideas come from a myriad of sources.

This tag is full of other people's newsletters, emails, websites, graphics, language, blog post titles, pdfs, etc.

The latest addition is an Instagram image that I saved for my virtual assistant (we share a notebook) that illustrates a specific type of graphic/font design that I'm drawn to these days.

How I Used Evernote This Week to Remember A Useful Napkin

5Have you ever found something really useful scribbled on the back of a napkin or envelope? I certainly did while organizing last week.

My client found the cleverest diagram of how to recall measurements of cups, pints, quarts, and gallons.

I snapped a photo with my camera that will be at the ready next time my retired schoolteacher mother pop-quizzes me!

Click here to see the diagram in my Evernote.
