4kids 0 Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Ok...my wife and I started using Evernote a year ago to keep track of receipts, and tax records...yawn. Now that she just gave birth to twins and our life chaos has increased exponentially, we again turned to Evernote to find a solution. I have read getmegeeky's evernote for mom's ebook and though I have read it 3 or 4 times, I don't get it. In the spreadsheet example, the kids and family are listed with red subtopics (notebooks), but in actuality, you cannot duplicate a notebook name so I don't know how to accomplish that. Plus, that didn't really translate to the templates at the end of the book. So, that left me confused and searching for other advice. I have read so many blogs, searched high and low and I don't know how to set this up for our use and to minimize the chaos. With 4 kids, we cannot set up each kid as a stack because the subtopics of medical informaiton, artwork, sports, etc cannot be duplicated for each kid. Conversely, stacks for Medical Information, School, Sports, etc can't be used because we can't put the kids' names in each stack due to duplication? So, then I think about tags. Each kid (and us) is his/her own tag. So, with notebooks for Schoolwork, Medical Information, we can tag with the kids' names and that will separate them. But, each kid is important enough for his/her own tag...arghh..so confused. Any advice from those with multiple kids? How can I best organize this database? We are drowning in paper and the chaos is beating us. Thanks in advance....-buried in St. Louis Link to comment
