I’ve spoken about the ways Evernote kept me organized before. And I still love Evernote but after their recent change in their pricing structure, I’ve switched to OneNote. And, I’ve been pleasantly surprised at how well it is working for me. I am amazed at how this program saves me money. Yes, an organization program can actually save you money WHILE keeping your organized.
Serving As a Finance Binder
You can use OneNote to keep all of your bill information in one place. This can be as simple or complicated as you would like.
Being A Price Book
Don’t keep a bulky price book in your purse, use OneNote to keep track of the best prices for your frequently bought items!
Storing Store Circulars
Do you find yourself frequently checking the store circulars to plan out your shopping trips? Use OneNote to keep a digital copy of them instead!
Shopping List At Fingertips
How often do you forget your list when you go to the store? Keep a digital version in OneNote and always have it with you (if you use the mobile app!)
Keeping Track of Trials
Use OneNote to keep track of the different trials you sign up so you don’t accidently get charged! (See this post for how I manage trials).
Storing Receipts and Warranties
Scan in a copy of receipts and warranties to never misplace them.
Allowing You To Become Paperless
Have you gone paperless yet? OneNote makes it easy to store everything in one place. I haven’t been able to go completely and totally paperless yet but I am pretty happy with the systems I have in place now. Instead of filing cabinets, I now only have one accordion filing container for my papers. It’s not hard to go paperless. I have my eye on a spectacular scanner that will make scanning papers that much easier. For now though, I am sticking to my flatbed scanner that is attached to my printer. It takes longer but I already own it.
Eliminates The Need For Multiple, Expensive Apps
With OneNote, you don’t need multiple apps. You can use it for your note making app, your to-do list app, your digital receipt saving app and your calendar app.
Keeps Track Of Multiple Earning Programs
Do you often forget how many different multiple earning programs you are a part of? Store all the information in OneNote to remind you when it slips your mind.
Cost of Notebooks
And of course, using OneNote cuts down on the cost of notebooks and pens!
