Where Is It? Keeping Track of Stuff – Quick Tip Tuesday

Quick Tip Tuesday


“Hey, Mom! Do you know where I put…..?”.  Sound familiar?

I tend to make sure that there’s a place for everything and that stuff, for the most part, gets put into its proper place. There are lots of little odds and ends, though, that seem to be easily misplaced, and there are other things that my family need infrequently, or only during certain seasons, and they forget where those things are kept. The problem is, for some of those things, I can’t remember right away when I’m asked.

Of course, there is no additional cost to you. I am always grateful to those of you who choose to bless me this way. You can read about how I spend those pennies, and more about how I earn them, in my disclosure policy.)


I solved that dilemma in my own home by creating a folder in Evernote called “Where is it”. Whenever I put away one of those oddball, or seasonal items, I just add a new note to Evernote, tag it with “where is it” and any other words that might be useful, and then breathe a sigh of relief. I know that when I’m asked where the neighbor’s key is, or I get a text while I’m at the grocery store asking about batting cage tokens, all I need to do is open Evernote, search for the item by name or by “where is it”, and I’ll have the location within seconds!

Now, when I hear, “Hey, where’s my……?”, I don’t panic. I just run a quick search on Evernote!
