Paperless Home Organization: How to Create A Digital Home Management Binder – Simply Convivial

It’s here! My next eBook, an instruction manual for setting up a home management “binder” on Evernote, plus how to use Remember the Milk and Google Calendar to juggle appointments and tasks, is now available!

While my 31 Days to GTD for Homemakers series was running (on autopilot) in October, I received multiple questions about and requests for getting organized with Evernote or utilizing a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. It seemed like a good project to tackle when I was big-as-a-house and preferring to sit most of the day (and much of the night as I had insomnia not infrequently during the last trimester).

It’s been fun to have both the excuse and motivation to finally get my own set-up consistent and running. And, I’m hoping, now that I “wrote the book on it,” I’ll have to keep it running to avoid hypocrisy and build credibility, right? Right? One can hope, anyway.

The normal price for the eBook – Paperless Home Organization: A Guide to Creating A Digital Homemaking Binder – is $7.99, but it will be marked down automatically to $2.99 for the month of January. Next week, I hope, the Kindle version will be available, but that is taking us some more tweaking.

Today only, for you, the pdf version is $1.99.

So if “getting organized” is a new year goal you’ve made, or you’ve been wanting to take better advantage of your technological tools, here is the guide to show you how, using free apps and straight-forward instructions.

    What fantastic timing! I started following your blog very recently after someone mentioned the GTD series, and I’m really excited about implementing that. And then I got a tablet 2 days ago, and have been looking forward to making my management binder paperless, but not really sure of the best way to do it. So all that to say – I just bought your ebook! :-)

    Hi Mystie,

    Bought your e-book yesterday, but still haven’t received the e-mail download (or confirmation for that matter). I paid by Paypal. Any ideas as to what has happened?

      It should be in your inbox now, Meredith. Let me know if it isn’t. :)

    I bought the e-book this morning and have been setting things up this evening (bookmarking icons on my toolbar, streamlining email accounts, etc.). I’m not entirely certain I’ll go paperless in the end, but I’m already more organized by using some of the tools you write about in the book. If I receive an iPod Touch this year, I might seriously consider going paperless.

    I began using Evernote a few months ago, so I’m anxious to see how you utilize it. And I’ve had a RTM account for awhile but have never been able to figure out what to do with it, so again, I’m excited to see how you use it.

    Thank you so much for such a helpful resource, Mystie. I’m just amazed by how tech-savvy you are!

    Hi there – I just bought your ebook yesterday. I’m familiar with GTD, and this is a great step by step resource for implementing it! Can you elaborate on how you use the stars in gmail – I see that you use the red exclamation for important things that must be done soon, and a star for things needing reply, but how do you use the others that you mention in your ebook?
