My daughter, Emma, kills what seems like an entire forest each year writing things down to try and keep herself organized for school. Her desk is littered with papers, notes, index cards, lists, and reminders that she is constantly misplacing.
Her problem is similar to that of many adults I know, who have trouble organizing themselves at work or at home.
Spending twenty minutes trying to find that note that you’re Pretty Sure Was Really Important by hand is frustrating to say the least. Fortunately, a host of technology options are available to stay organized and assist with all of the consolidating, categorizing, and arranging that we just do not have time to do.
One of the best and most user-friendly programs that I have found is Evernote.
