How I organize my AwesomeNotes folders

To recap, you can read about my love affair with AwesomeNotes for $3.99 in these posts.

(Stupid name, great application)

I am constantly trying to improve my organizational skills, which means I am always changing my folders, consolidating them, splitting them and trying out new things to see what works the best for me.

I think I’ve come up with a good set of folders that aren’t too general and aren’t too specific.

I find that the first page is the most important for me. I hate flipping through to the other screens unless I have to, and as I’ve memorized almost all of my passwords that I use on a regular basis, I never need to be reminded of what my logins are.

I really needed to separate out: Personal, Work and Blog stuff. I couldn’t put it all into one, because I put my Work and Personal stuff at a higher priority than Blog stuff.

I like reading about new books and things I should watch, so I make a note about what I want to download and watch or listen to on iTunes, or to read as an ebook (I use Kobo books by the way, their app isn’t so bad, but isn’t amazing either).

Here are logins and things I rarely need to reference.

Here are the folders I REALLY never reach for unless I’m in the middle of making a new dish or something.

So that’s how I do it.

Any suggestions on other folders you think might be helpful that you use?

I’m always open to new ideas/ways of organizing my thoughts.
