Geek Tip: Use Your Camera Phone To Get Organized


Last week Lifehacker featured a great guide to Using Your Cameraphone as a Visual To-Do List and it reminded me how very useful a camera phone can be. Here are some of my favorite ways to use my camera:

  • To Do List - Using your cameraphone to make a visual to do list is much easier than finding a pencil and paper because it's already in your pocket. Sometimes I even take a picture of my list with my phone so I don't have to carry paper.
  • Shopping - My sister and I were shopping for dresses to wear to our friend's wedding a while back and we started taking pictures of one another with our camera phones so we wouldn't forget about potential dresses when we moved on to the next store. You can always send them via text message to a friend for a second opinion.

  • Parking - I parked in the same spot in my lot everyday because I kept forgetting where I parked and searched for my car on the wrong floor or corner. Use your camera phone to take a pic of your parking spot or the sign above your car.
  • Digits, hours and notes - Think of your picture phone as a notepad without having to carry a notepad. Most modern phones have notes sections, or even text message functions where you can write yourself a quick note and save the message for later reference . You can either type it out, or take a picture of what ever item you need to be reminded of be it a business card, store hours or even your favorite restaurant's hours.
