How I used Evernote to Access a Wall Measurement at home while antiquing

15I was at my favorite antique shop in Virginia (right at Shenandoah National Park) on Saturday where I saw some mantles that I loved.  Having been wanting to makeover my bare fireplace for some time, I immediately turned to Evernote to find the measurements of my corner fireplace wall.  Because I had this measurement & an image of my fireplace in Evernote, I was able to score a gorgeous antique marble mantle for $40!  Stay tuned for makeover pics!

How I used Evernote to Find a Set of Quickbooks Instructions

12I had to run some reports from Quickbooks for my accountant.  I never remember how to do this, so I have my bookkeeper's directions saved in a note called "How to run a report in Quickbooks."  This is the 2nd time this note has come in handy.

Evernote is the ideal place to store instructions of all types. This particular one is in my "Inspired Office" notebook and tagged "Accounting" and "Instructions."  It's not a terribly interesting note, but you can view it here.

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.
