    1Password - for maintaining passwords on Mac. It also works on the iPhone.

    Evernote - for just about EVERYTHING. Syncs from my Macbook and is accessible via Macbook and iPhone.

    Entourage - email app for Mac (calendar, etc.)

    And use a good titling system for files and folders for easy searching.

    Default "Strong Titling System"

    Funny, no one has EVER asked me for advice on organizing anything. Ever.

    The one thing I do pretty consistently, taught to me by my engineer DH, is to always name files by starting with the date, : yy-mm-dd such as:

    09-10-06 bank_recon.xls

    The reason you do the year first is so they will line up in order; if you need to see the name of the month for easy visual retrieval, do it like this:

    09-09-01 Sept_goals.doc

    I sometimes use this format for Folder names, also.

    Thanks for that tip anitahampl. I am now using Google docs and I ready like the fact I can logon anywhere and update my data. It helps me keep organized.

    Default RoboForm

    I Like your idea too, Anita. Thanks (you'd think as an ex-accountant, this one would have been one I would have learned already. Maybe that explains why I don't do accounting or auditing anymore?)

    For the RoboForm users - You feel comfortable with this information being online rather than restricted to your hard drive. (though on second thought, I use mozy, so maybe I've already answered my own question.)

    As a slight tweak to Anitas file format I add a preface letter, so LYYMMDD for Letter, SDDMMYY for Spreadsheet RDDMMYY for report etc, so I can search by type and date

    • Advertising
    • Merchants
    • Outsourced Work
    • Adsense
    • Tasks/Alerts

    It looks promising. Is it a good product for those that may have it?

    Thanks.

    I may check it out, Brent - but I'll admit to being a creature of habit and I have a hard time changing the way I'm doing things (esp if it works for me). Still, I'm interested to see how easy it is to use, refer back to, back up, use on multiple computers (I use 3), etc.
