1 pointFunny, I recently considered doing the same thing. As it is, I take photos of all of my kids artwork from school, knowing that at some point it will be lost or destroyed. At least I'll have a photographic record going back to the beginning for them.
1 pointI also use a tag; typically "Inbox" (as in GTD) and I'll tag any notes to take action on with that tag. Then I use a Saved Search to see the list. Once I've taken action, I either delete the note, or if I need the information, remove the Inbox tag and give it some other, more appropriate tag, that way it clears out of the list.
1 pointHi everyone! My name is Jamie Todd Rubin. By day I am a software developer and by night I am a science fiction writer and blogger. About a year ago, I decided to go paperless. I started using Evernote to manage digital versions of all of my "paper" and haven't looked back since. Whether it's bank statements, publisher contracts, or minutes from a homeowners meeting, I've got it all in Evernote, making it easy to search and access anywhere. And no more clutter in my office! I'm hoping I can share some tips and tricks about going paperless--as well as learn some new ones. I look forward to hearing your ideas.
