5 Ways to Use an Online Notes App to Organize Your Life

If you have a hectic lifestyle, then you’re probably always on the lookout for anything that can save you time or simplify your daily to-do list. There are tons of productivity and list apps out there that you can use to get organized, but you might actually be better off using a simple note-taking app instead because they are a lot more versatile. Learn more about organizing your life using a note-taking app.

Store Your To-Do Lists

If you’re like most people, then you probably have more than one to-do list — a daily list, a monthly one, and a list for less-important tasks that you need to get to eventually. Fortunately, note-taking apps like Evernote make it easy to organize multiple to-do lists because you can keep them all in one notebook.

Streamline Weekly Shopping

Keeping your household stocked and all your family members happy can take a lot of time if you aren’t organized. That’s why you should consider using a note-taking app to keep everything in order. You might be surprised to discover that it’s a lot easier  to save money on groceries when you’re keeping track of your household spending.

In addition to keeping a running weekly shopping list, you can:

  • Create a notebook for coupons by taking a picture of the coupon and setting an alert that notifies you before the coupon expires.

  • Keep a running inventory of normal household items you purchase so you can quickly look at it to see what you need to buy.

  • Keep a note for each member of your household to track items they need you to purchase.

  • Scan and keep all your receipts to track your spending.

  • Keep track of accounts and passwords for online retailers.

  • Keep track of store rewards program information.

Track Your Eating Habits and Exercise Routines

If you’re trying to start a new exercise routine or focus on improving your eating habits, then a note-taking app can help you. People who exercise regularly often track their progress to help them stay motivated and focused. Some of the ways that you can use a note-taking app to help you focus on exercising and eating right include:

  • Create a note that details your workout for each day — and attach videos so you know how to do the exercise correctly.

  • Create a note to serve as your daily food journal to make it easy to track the food and beverages you consume.

  • Create a notebook for healthy recipes to help with the meal planning process.

  • Use a calendar template to plan your meals for the week or your exercise schedule.

Organize Your Planning Process

You can use a note-taking app to plan everything from your next vacation to upcoming events — and you should. Simply create a notebook for each project you’re working on and use the notebook to keep track of details like:

  • To-do lists

  • Things you need to buy

  • Important documents, confirmation numbers, and reservation numbers

  • Important phone numbers

  • Maps 

  • Guest lists

  • Gift ideas

Keep a Weekly Chores List

If your family has trouble keeping track of their weekly chores, then make a notebook with your weekly chores list and share it with them. Creating a check-off list for each family member helps them stay focused, which can help cut down on your household chore time. Consider also adding a reminder to your note to notify individual family members when their chores aren’t complete.

Life is hectic. That’s not going to change. But you can save time and reduce stress by organizing everything you need to get through the day, week, month, and year in one place. Note-taking apps are versatile enough to serve as a foundation for everything you need to complete, track, and plan.
