Save time and sanity with… your CAMERA?

This tip is one of my favorites, and as I thought of it today while grocery shopping I realized it was a good tip to share.

I like to get healthy items in the bulk foods section, but when you do that you don’t get the cooking instructions like you would on a box.

So, whip out your camera on your phone and take a picture of the instructions!

This tip goes as well for things like:

Library Hours:

School Reminders:

Of course, I still have to put events on my calendar later, but if I don’t have time right as I was gathering the kids and stuff, then I can take the photo and do it later.

I have even used them to take a photo of the kids’ class list to remember all the kids’ names, school supplies lists, or basically any other piece of paper that I don’t want to lug around.  When I need it, I can scroll through my photos.

Other items: movie listings, MAPS, store flyers… anything that you’d need to remember or for a way to save paper.

I’d love to hear your ideas for ways you use your camera!

One thought on “Save time and sanity with… your CAMERA?

  1. The one I’ve been doing for years is a variation on an old Navy wife necessity: the inventory. I go into a room and do a multi-pic panorama of a room. Then I add open closets, open drawers, etc. I may not have it all, but if something happens, I’ll be close! Hugs, Cecily
