Though written for homemakers to be better organized, the organizational principles sketched out in this book are universal. I have taken a number of Mystie’s ideas and worked them into my current attempt to be more organized both at the office and at home.

If you have a computer, a smart phone, or a tablet and want to know how to organize your life using two simple digital tools, Remember the Milk & Evernote, this is a good how-to.

Publisher Synopsis

Organize Your Life and Home

Never lose a list again!
Keep track of everything in one place!
Put your gadgets to good use!

Best of all, this book shows you how to get organized using only free, web-based applications that sync with free apps on both Apple and Android devices.

Your home management “binder” will be digital, will take up no extra space no matter how much you add to it, will work on every platform, and will require no further investment in apps or programs.
Take advantage of your smartphone or iPad! Put it to good use: organizing your life.

What the digital home management system lacks in crafty cuteness, it makes up for in accessibility and versatility. The digital version is actually the frugal option if you already have the tools. If you have a smartphone, a tablet, or a laptop, why also keep heavy, clumsy paper binders?

So don’t let your gadgets go to waste; use them to make your life simpler.


Author Info

Mystie blogs at Simply Convivial, reflecting her desire to build more happiness, festivity, and fellowship into her home and family.

With nine-year-old and seven-year-old boys wrestling and digging and reading, a four-year-old-girl tagging alongside, a hefty two-year-old son opening every drawer he can, and a brand new second daughter, Mystie strives to maintain an orderly and harmonious home. Official homeschooling has begun, but it is the daily interaction, the relationships fostered, that are equally as integral to the children’s identity and development as their scholastic studies are. Academics provide a forge for character, just as life provides fodder for learning.

Mystie was raised to be a reader in a home full of books. At her father’s knee she learned the first step to any hobby or undertaking is to check out 5 books on the topic from the library — and read them. She now passes on that book dependence to the next generation, while maintaining it in her own life. Having read dozens of books on childrearing and education, and participating in online discussions on the topics, she is settling into her own hybrid of Charlotte Mason, classical education, and — much to her chagrin — Christian unschooling.

Mystie, the oldest of seven children, was homeschooled herself from birth through high school. She graduated with a B.A. in English from the University of Idaho in Moscow, ID at the age of 20. She and her husband, Matt, were married at 19, with no looking back and no regrets.
