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.

Click here to see my ongoing list of music to listen to.

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

How I Used Evernote to Save a Coupon From My Email

Ever wish you had that coupon on you? I forwarded my REI coupon to Evernote this week, knowing that I'd use it over the weekend.

Instead of cluttering up my inbox, it was there waiting for me in my "Shopping" notebook.

Was a piece of cake to bring up at the register.

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 Evernote During a Talk to Take Notes & Photos

Evernote I didn't set out to create a note for a talk I attended last week, but I ended up quickly creating one right as the talk ended. I heard serial entrepreneur Miki Agrawal speak in DC last week.

As I do at many talks, I pay attention to the delivery as much as I do the content.  It's how I get ideas for outlining my own talks.

In this case, I photographed some of her slides, imagining how I could create a similar slide for one of my talks.

I also typed in some one-lines that stuck out.  This note "Miki Agrawal Talk, 3/3/15" is saved in my Inspired Office notebook, tagged, "Examples to Use" and "Public "Speaking" and you can view it here.

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: Saving a Sentimental Voicemail

8-birthday-cupcake-ruth-blackI saved a sentimental voicemail.  Ever since my birthday months ago, I've saved a voicemail on my phone of my mom and nieces singing "happy birthday."  Using the directions here, I held my phone up to my computer and played the message through the iPhone speaker with the Evernote mic on.

It came out surprisingly clear.  I now have this sweet birthday song saved forever in my "Memorabilia" notebook, freeing me to delete the message.

How I used Evernote this Week: Genius Bar Questions List

apple

I have a note in my "Tech" folder called "Genius Bar Questions." I added to this list an issue I'm having with iPhoto.

It may take me a few months to compile more than 3 or 4 questions about my Mac to warrant a visit to the Apple store, but the next time

I make a Genius Bar appointment, all of my questions will be accessible in one place.

How I used Evernote this week: Keeping track of paint colors

Evernote Camera Roll 20141123 075649I use Evernote to keep track of both paint colors I've used and paint colors I'd like to use one day in my "Home" notebook. This week I added to it a phone screenshot of an Instagram post of a new dark paint color that I'm obsessed with.
