Remember the best dishes at your favorite restaurants

When you are at restaurant take a quick note of what you ordered. You can also include a mini review of what was good. The next time you go back to that restaurant you can easily remember that dish you especially liked and steer clear of ones you didn’t.

*Pro Tip: If you use Evernote on iPhone or Android any notes will automatically include the location the note was created. This way if you return to the area of the restaurant you can call up the notes created close by.

Evernote Revisited: Perfect DIY Companion

I recently started a massive landscaping project at my house…It also involves putting in a new driveway, parking court and patio, as well as a new privacy fence. To get everything we want, I’m serving as general contractor, and I needed a single place to store notes, shopping lists, links to websites with products or inspiration, task lists, and more…

..A few times recently, my wife and I have seen examples of something we like that we might want to incorporate into our landscape, so I simply create a Snapshot note to add to the project notebook..

Use Evernote to remember all the interesting people you meet.
When you are at a conference, trade show or networking event, snap a picture of the person and their name tag (or them holding up their business card). Evernote will make all the text in the image searchable so now you can have a face to go with the name. You can create a separate notebook for contacts, or tag it and use a saved search to get back to them.
