My Top 3 Evernote Notebook Ideas for People Who Work from Home


There are a lot of different ways you can use Evernote if you work from home. The following are a few of them:

Receipts – Create an Evernote notebook for receipts you want to keep track of for tax purposes. If it’s a paper receipt from a store, you can either take a picture of it with your phone and save the picture to Evernote, or if you have a scanner you can scan it and save the scan to a note in Evernote. If it’s an emailed receipt, all you have to do is forward the receipt to your Evernote email address and put the name of the notebook at the end of the subject like with the @ sign before it.  For example, if your notebook is called “Receipts” your subject line would look like this:  {subject} @Receipts.

Research – If you’re a freelance writer or writing an eBook, you can use Evernote to keep your research organized. Just create a notebook about whatever your article or eBook is about, and save any notes that you create, or web pages that you clip, to that notebook.

Organize important emails – This is one of my favorite ways to use Evernote not only for business purposes, but also for my personal emails. If you have emails you want to save, or don’t have time to read, just forward them to an appropriately-named Evernote notebook.  I save blog post emails that I want to save to a notebook called “Favorite Blog Posts,” and I have an IFTTT recipe set up to forward important emails for my work to my Evernote notebook for work – please  note, that last idea only works if you use Gmail. I’ve been trying to figure out how to forward different Yahoo mails using IFTTT, but unfortunately IFTTT doesn’t have a channel for Yahoo Mail.

These are just a few ways you can use Evernote if you work from home. If you use Evernote in other ways, I’d love to hear them! Please feel free to comment below.
