How I used Evernote this week to clip an interior design article

Do you keep magazines just because they have one good article?  If not, do you tear out articles or design pages only to have an "articles to read" or "design articles" folder?  Or worse, do these articles pile up in all corners of your bag, office, and home?  I avoid this with Evernote.  Last week I saw a stunning home in Architectural Digest that I just had to share with a friend.  I pdf'd it with my phone via Genius Scan (though I could have just as easily jpeg'd it with the Evernote app), saved it to Evernote, sent it to my friend, and ditched the magazine.  Next time my friend and I need (and I don't use the word "need" lightly) I can just look it up in Evernote, rending the colorful page much more useful than if they were stuffed in a bag. View the very colorful note here.

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 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.
