One way your computer can save you a pile of torn-out and printed-out ideas, is to use it as a scrapbook.
Those recipes, pictures of clothes, vacation spots, decorating ideas, and dreams for the future no longer have to pile up on your desk or in a drawer.
If they’re pictures or articles you see on the internet, and they’re public information, save them on Pinterest. (pinterest.com) You can create “bulletin boards” with different titles to store those ideas.
If it’s a little more private, doesn’t lend itself to a picture format, or if you are collecting information or ideas about a project, try Evernote. (evernote.com) It allows you to create files with whatever title you need, and store all sorts of electronic info in a very handy and easy-to-manage format.
Easy. Accessible from any computer, or even your smartphone. Free (unless you’re really storing a lot.)
