  1. Finally reached my 1000th note

  2. Yeah I doubt I will ever hit the notebook limit. If anyone of my notebooks have less than 15 notes and aren't being updated frequently I just move those notes to a different notebook.
  3. Aiming to hit my 1000th note before the new year.

  4. I used to feel like an Evernote poweruser till I started using the forums. Reason being that I hear how people have thousands and thousands of notes and after only 3+ years of using Evernote I only just hit my 800th note.

  5. You might want to try Mindjet. I found it earlier today in the Evernote Trunk. I have been testing it out and it seems like a good mind mapping tool with a nice Evernote export button. When you export a mind map you are given the option of how you want to save it. You can save it as a text outline or an image. I found what worked best for me was to do two exports in each format and then merge the notes. It's not the best solution in the world, but it is a nice easy way to store your mind maps in Evernote. http://www.evernote....ult&source=home
  6. Why don't you just add something like, "Due Date: 12/1/2011" to the end of your note's title. That way you don't have to fuss around with the creation date and you can search for it by just type in the search query for example: intitle:"Due Date: 12/1/2011" I would go one step furthur and create a saved search with the search query intitle:"Due Date: " to bring up a list of all your notes that have a due date with just one click.
  7. Yeah I was agreeing with you. Recently I was seeing that I had notebooks for each store and that this was going to be a waste, since we are limited to only 250 notebooks. So I just delete all those notebooks and now store all my receipts in a single notebook called "Receipts" and I tag each receipt with the store's name. I may add more tags later on, but for now this suits my needs just fine.
  8. Yeah, I haven't had really much need to recall any of my receipts or things I bought, but it is nice to know that they are there if I need them. Right now the only tags I have for them are individual tags for each store. I used to have a notebook stack called receipts and individual notebooks for each store but I quickly saw that this would get complicated real fast.
  9. I don't really need to look up what date I made a purchase so I haven't really tagged my receipts with dates. The only exception to this are receipts that I have scanned in because I need to create a title for them and having a bunch of notes labeled Best Buy 1, Best Buy 2, etc. wouldn't be helpful. In order to distinguish them I add the date of purchase in the title. I tried searching my receipts notebook by year after reading your post and that brought up the receipts I titled like I wanted, but understandably it brought up other receipts that weren’t in the target search date. I think the best option, for me at least, would be to create tags just for the year
  10. I do the same thing around Christmas time because it is so much easier to show people what you want. I also scan pages for magazines I want to keep because I can't think of an easy way to scan the whole thing into a PDF.
  11. I did a Black Friday standing on line wait at the store once and it really wasn't worth it to me. Unless they have something exclusive and that you really want on sale, then it is not going to be worth the wait. On the other hand I have found that the cyber deals in the past 2 years have been better and a better experience. No real sense in clipping them in to Evernote because the deals expire quickly, but if you had your Christmas list in Evernote beforehand then it would be helpful.
  12. One thing you could do instead of using a shared notebook is you and your wife exchange your Evernote e-mail address. That way if you or your wife has a note to share you can simply e-mail it and it will be your own notebook rather than a shared one. The only problem with this is it doesn't work well when collaborating on a note because if you make a change and then e-mail it back your wife will have to remember to delete the older note. This is more of a solution for sharing notes, pictures, or articles, that you aren't likely to make major changes to in the future.
  13. I have the same topic with a large collection of magazines. Often the size of the pages do not fit into the sheet feeder of the scanner and to cut them to make them fitting takes ages. So what I will try next is to mount a digital camera to a tripod looking straight down to the floor and with enough light it should be possible to take pictures of each page with a decent speed. Good thing I have Evernote or I probably would have spent days trying to remember this, but a year or two ago I came across an article for a professional book scanner. http://mini.atiz.com/ It does an excellent job from what I see; however, it looks like it is quite expensive. I would recommend this option only for people who have a large number of books they want to scan and also if money is no object. The other option is you could invest in a flatbed scanner and scan in one page at a time. Unfortunately even with the new flatbed scanners out on the market this is a time consuming process. I originally thought of making pdfs of all my magazines this way, but I might consider just scanning the pages I want to keep rather than the whole magazine itself. Lastly you could use good digital cameras and make your own book scanner on the cheap. Here is a link to some guides that can help get you started. http://www.instructa...&q=book+scanner
