i heart organization (+ evernote)!

I am an organization junky. I absolutely love finding new ways to organize my life and my environment. The tricky thing for me is sticking with a system. Sometimes I have to try out a few different ways of doing things before I settle on a method that works best for me and my lifestyle/workflow.

Today I am giving Evernote a try for the first time. Both my husband and my dad have used this program and have talked about how amazing it is...but I have never tried it for myself. This morning after sorting through a bunch of notes jotted down on post-its and yellow legal pads on my desk...I became determined to find a better system for organizing all of this information! So, I am giving this nifty program a try (and I'm really excited about it!)

Evernote allows you to gather and organize notes and images from a variety of sources! You can take a pictures with your cellphone and email them to your Evernote account (keep track of contacts by taking pictures of business cards, snap a photo of the white board after a meeting or class, or grab an image of a poster on the bulletin board at a coffee shop.) You can clip recipes from the web and keep them neatly organized with relevant tags. You can even store audio notes as memos to yourself for certain projects!

I'm still trying to figure out the best ways I can incorporate this new tool into my daily life...but I am very excited about the possibilities! :)

How about you? What are some of your favorite programs/applications/methods for organizing your life?
