For as long as I can remember, I have collected recipes, crafts ideas, dream home inspiration, business articles and gift ideas. Most of these came in the form of pages torn from magazines, photos shot on my phone or pages dog-eared in books. About 3 years ago, I attempted to get my collections under control by spending weeks organizing everything in file folders on my computer and in my file cabinet. I did a pretty good job but then I never looked at any of it again. It was too inconvenient to sift through the stacks of paper, even though they were categorized, or to open and close hundreds of documents on my computer searching for that one page.
And then I found Evernote.
