Family Organization Tips with Evernote Post-it Products

Did you hear the news that I shared last week about the collaboration between Evernote and Post-it Products?  If you missed it, here’s a quick recap: Evernote has updated the camera in their clever digital note-taking app to allow you to photograph, digitize, and organize your classic paper Post-it Notes.  Awesome, right?  My favorite part: the Evernote app can categorize those paper-turned-digital Post-it Notes based on COLOR.  I know – AMAZING!  And  since this is by far my favorite part of the Evernote and Post-it Brand collaboration, I thought I’d share some family organization tips using that cool feature…

 3 Ways to Stay Organized with Colorful Evernote Post-It Notes

Assign Each Color to a Different Category.
Use the different colored Post-it Notes for different things that you need to keep organized for your family.  For example: Jot all of your doctor’s appointments on pink Post-it Notes.  And all of your school notes and activities on blue.  In your Evernote app, assign those colors to those specific categories.  Then when you photograph them with the Evernote camera, those notes will automatically go right in their appropriate folder.  Voila!


  1. Assign Each Color to a Different Family Member.
    Make a folder for each family member in Evernote.  Then assign each folder (and therefore family member) a certain Post-it Note color.  When the doctor calls to reschedule an appointment for your son, grab his assigned color note to jot it down.  Then when you photograph it with the Evernote camera, it’ll go straight to your son’s folder.  Very cool!
  2. Set Reminders for Your Post-it Notes.
    After you snap a photo of your Post-it Note, set a reminder for the date that you need to remember.  Then you can have Evernote message or email you that reminder.  Never had a Post-it Note remind you before, huh?
