The super awesome web clipper. I like using my mouse to select the area of the page that I want to remember

What’s your Evernote Story?

I just bought a house. Can’t begin to tell you what a headache it is. Remembering where all the documents you need are, looking for the best deal on; mortgage rates, home insurance, moving trucks, etc. If there’s a deal to be had, I want it. That’s why I’m all over the internet, crawling the web for the hottest deal that no one’s caught yet. So at first, I was using Evernote as my deal repository.

Now that I have the house, I have a new issue: how do I paint it? I never thought color was so difficult. You think you like a color… until you put it on the wall. So I decided to start looking for ideas from people who know what they’re doing. Interior designers, graphic designers, design websites, design bloggers, design tipsters… anyone who’s got ideas, I want to take a look at them. But especially with color, it’s super hard to remember. Was that the exact blue I saw? What kind of brown was that? I’m a visual person, but I’m not that visual. So I used Evernote to remember decors, painting tips, color combination’s, find palettes of colors to make sure you wouldn’t get a heart attack looking at that red next to that purple. In short, Evernote’s my personal interior decorator.

What’s was your last note in Evernote

    Why is she holding a slice of american cheese and a bunch of different colored 3.5″ floppy disks?

  • Nicolette

    Actually, she is holding sample paint colors, so she can match it to the wall besides deciding what color to paint.

    I’m terrible at picking out paint colors for my house. Good use for Evernote. I’ve just started using it on my Mac.
