Learn how to use Evernote & Trello to get organized!

How many times have you:

  • spilled coffee on your “To Do” List?
  • lost your “To Do” List?
  • discovered your child has drawn and colored on your “To Do” List
  • spent hours search for an image you used in a blog post or a picture of something you’re making or designing?
  • been totally frustrated because it feels like you just can’t find anything!
Using Evernote & Trello to get organized

Sounds like it’s time to sharpen your organizational skills!

Evernote is a free app

You can use it on your smartphone, tablet and your computer.  It’s designed for note taking, organizing, task management, and keeping track of everything you could possibly imagine losing track of.

Think of a notebook that never runs out of paper!

I’ve used it for maybe 10 or so years and absolutely love it.  Yes, I’ve tried other Note Taking apps, but I keep coming back to Evernote.

Trello is also free

It’s an online corkboard. You use it to organize “cards” into lists—those cards can be tasks, notes, projects, shared files, or anything else that helps you stay organized.

I’ll be honest, I’ve only used Trello for the last couple of months (so I don’t know EVERYTHING about it).  But I love it!

When you use Evernote & Trello together, it’s magic!

Evernote holds all the written out details for a:

  • blog post that you’re drafting
  • pattern that your writing/designing
  • project that you’re working on
  • course you’re taking

Trello on the other hand, holds:

  • the images for that blog post you’re drafting
  • pictures of that pattern you’re designing
  • important links for that project you’re working on
  • a list of the courses you’re taking

What you’ll learn about using Evernote & Trello to help you get organized:

This is just a few of the things I have planned for tomorrow’s live.  How to:

  • use the Trello “Power-Ups” to link Evernote to Trello
  • create a “template” in Evernote
  • use the template you create in Evernote
  • work with Lists & Cards in Trello
  • attach an Evernote “note” to a Trello card

  1. I have used Evernote for a bit and looked into Trello; but then always end up back with google docs or just the notes on my phone 🙂

    1. I did that for a super long time too, but then I decided to learn something new & up my game so to speak. I hope you join me tomorrow, just out of curiosity 🙂

  2. Great tips for those of us who are organizationally challenged. Thanks for posting.

    1. Thanks Karen. Getting organized can certainly be a chore and there are so many things to choose from! It gave me a headache to begin with LOL

  3. I’m more into Outlook- both for security and features.

    1. I love Outlook as well, use it in my day job as a software developer creating add-ons for QuickBooks desktop for the construction industry.
