I’m still using an old fashioned paper and pencil.

I keep notes in Markdown files, keep tasks in NextCloud Deck, and keep track of bills with NextCloud Calendar.

Emacs’ orgmode.

I’ve been trying to use elementary’s calendar app and sync it with Nextcloud but I haven’t finished the process yet, I doubt I will fix my mess of a life, though.

Don’t be harsh on yourself just because you tried. The fact that you did means you haven’t given up yet. All this effort means something. So, keep it up.

In the morning, I put reminders in my work calendar to do stuff in the afternoon / tomorrow.

I move them when I miss it.

I don’t when I finish them or forget.

I’m longing for weekends and try to move stuff across those two days.

But forget it all, most of the time.

Some stuff sorts itself out, others bite me.

I wish I knew how to write a haiku.

That was not bad at all, keep it up.

Everyone talking about notes and reminders. Another aspect of organizing life (to me) is organizing all the documents I accumulate over the years. I run paperless-ng in my home network. Every physical letter I receive is immediately scanned and added to paperless, which then OCRs it for easy text search. It automatically tries to find out the date, who the correspondent is (you can set detection patterns or let it learn), and you can give tags to documents (which can also be auto-added by simple patterns or learning). After scanning a document I can put it in a binder (if it’s worth keeping), and paperless stores the page number of it. When the binder is full, I use a new binder and continue the page count. I can find any document within seconds, no more searching through piles of paper for hours. Of course it also handles any digital documents I find important and it can also monitor E-Mail Accounts for attachments to automatically ingest. I believe everyone should use this or similar software

I have a note app and a calendar app. Between these two I can make to do lists and schedule events. That’s all I’ve needed.

Notes app on my phone. I check it once or twice a day.

Am using a simple notes app & an old-fashioned paper calendar, but noticing that I use the latter less and less in favor of the app

I takes notes using the Markdown syntax in Joplin, using E2EE and syncing using OneDrive.

I use Google Calendar for family-related events for which I plan to build an e-paper based calendar display for the kitchen along with the weather and the news headlines.

I scan my paper documents as soon as they come in and rename them using the following syntax

YYYY-MM-DD - Subject ($ Amount).pdf

I bought some storage shelves and I sorted my hardware into multiple storage bins that fits those shelves, and labelled the bins so I don’t have to search too much. I haven’t decided if I want to do an inventory of all those bins and store that info yet.

I also try to find an electronic version of the manual of any hardware I buy, and put them in my Home documentation folder along with their scanned receipt just in case.

When I bought the house, we also repainted all the rooms. In order to make it easy to get the chosen colors if we need to do some repairs, I took note of all the paint cans (paint brand, finish, color code) so if I need to order some paint I won’t have to find a close match.

Right now I use Google Keep almost always. Trying to find a foss fedi alternative that would seemlessly sync between my pc and Android. Any suggestions?

Evernote & notion : was never able to switch to Evernote yet I would switch to notion when they bring offline work function.
