The first is a free Internet program called Evernote (available at www.Evernote.com). It allows you to keep as much material as you want; tips, recipes, wish lists, reading lists, etc., and easily access it whenever you want. You can organize these items any way that works for YOU, and be able to go right back to them when you need them. I couldn't live without it.
The second is another free Internet program called Pocket (getpocket.com). It allows you to "Pocket" whatever is on your screen. If I see a list of tips (or whatever), but don't have time to review it then, I "Pocket" that webpage (with a click on my toolbar). Voila, that page is right there in my "Pocket" for me to return to when it's convenient. At that point, I might copy just the items that interest me to Evernote, for more organized, long-term storage.
At age 68, I cannot remember how we lived without the Internet, and after using Evernote and Pocket, I hate to think how much time I wasted keeping information I wanted on paper, or in computer files that were tedious to organize and took up hard drive space.
