  • Grocery Lists 2 of 11

    About 75% of my grocery list is the same each week. I keep my list in Evernote and can pull it up while at the store.  Before heading to the store, I check what we have and delete those items and then when meal planning - add any additional ingredients to my list.

  • House Shopping 3 of 11

    Last year, when we are shopping for a house, Evernote was amazing. Anytime I was driving through a neighborhood and came across a house that I liked, I would snap a photo and put the address in Evernote. Then when I went to email the realtor I had the information handy and a photo for my memory sakes.

    p.s. I so wish this house worked out, womp.

  • Medical Records 4 of 11

    We have 4 kids and keeping up with medical records has always been a joke, until Evernote that is.

    I've created a notebook and started snapping photos of the paper the doctor gives me when we leave.  This is great to have access to, for instance I wanted to know how much my kid weighed at his last well visit - I just did a simple search and shazam!

  • Audio Notes 5 of 11

    Sometimes I like to rant about something and really just don't feel like writing it all down. I can do that with Evernote's audio feature. Just record and the sound file is embedded into a note.

  • Note Taking 6 of 11

    Everyday note taking, I keep stored in Evernote. These notes maybe simple thoughts, or from a business meeting.

  • Draft Blogging 7 of 11

    I have used Evernote many times to draft blog posts. This comes in handy when I am on the go, waiting somewhere and don't want to put something in Wordpress mobile.  Sometimes  I just feel the need to throw something on paper - but in the digital world we live in, it's more like throw something into Evernote.

  • Ideas 8 of 11

    I am someone who thinks of the most random things at the most random times. Yes, I have a file for those random ideas in Evernote. And since I can pull up across any device, I know when I need to know that idea - I can easily access it with whatever device I have.

  • Personal Journaling 9 of 11

    I wish so much I could have a pretty journal that I doodle in. Nope. Anytime I need to just write (it's VERY therapeutic might I add....), Evernote's fabulous.

  • Random Documents 10 of 11

    Our kids are in a new school and require uniforms. I have kept the school's documents in Evernote so when I am out shopping, I can go back and reference easily.

  • To Do Lists 11 of 11

    While I know there are a plethora of apps to help with my to-d0's, I keep my list in Evernote.  I need a utility that I can plug in action items in my phone and then see them later when I work on my computer (and send from my computer to phone).  Since I use Evernote for a plethora of tasks, it only makes sense that my to-do's be kept here.

Sure, I could use Google Drive (which I adore for business, but that’s a different post) or what have you, but Evernote just works for me. The interface is simple and easy to use. Anything information I need to keep or find, is right on my phone, or my computer, or my iPad or any other web device. It just makes sense.
