Organizing Useful Tips

Readers share so many useful tips but often I don't need to save the entire article. Finding these tips when I need them is essential. I solved this by buying a small 4x5 spiral notebook with the rip out pages. When tips comes along that I want to keep, I write them in the notebook. I keep the notebook right by my computer for easy access. It's a handy little reference book and doesn't take up much space! If I decide later to keep the tip in another room, I can easily rip out the small page. Now, all the tips are together!

I save the tips, recipes, etc. that I want to keep into a folder on my computer. Later, I download them onto a disc that I can use at a later time. (04/07/2006)

I forward the tips to myself, delete everything I don't want, forward it, and then put it in a thrifty tips file on my computer. In the subject line I put a word or two to let me know what's in that one. (04/07/2006)

Organizing Useful Tips

I keep all of my saved tips in a computer document file. I can easily look it up and generally do not print them, as they are almost all just one sentence tips. I put the subject at the beginning of the sentence, such as "Peeling Boiled Eggs " and underline it for quick reference. Keep all of these great tips coming, I have no end to my document which is 20 pages long so far! (04/07/2006)

Hi Lady Claire and other members,

I just 'copy' any tips onto a blank email and then send it to myself. From there, I have a folder in my Outlook Express called 'Tips' and file them in that folder. I also do this for all my emails from friends so that I don't forget things I've already asked or told them.

I also use this 'filing' method for any emails between myself with suppliers, etc. and it's been great when I've had problems with them later on, etc.

I can label everything in the folders and can always find everything I want quickly. It's also great for passwords, etc. for any web groups I belong to.

Organizing Useful Tips

I save articles directly from magazines, either tearing out the pages or copying the article at a local discount copy center. Then I assemble the the articles in a looseleaf notebook, either with hole punches or by sliding the article into a slash pocket. Then I can discard the rest of the magazine. (06/21/2006)

Go to www.azzcardfile.com. It is a free down load. A computer crafting group I belong to have used this for years. I use it for recipes, tips, all kinds of things.
