OneNote brings organization and productivity to this summer's DIY home remodel! to help you leave behind the disarray of bookmarked websites, ripped out magazine pages and pile of papers.
Capture research, calculate your budget and monitor before/after in one consolidated place. Having your plan with you at all times. Whether you're managing your home improvement project from home, from work, or while on the road, OneNote lets you take your plan and information with you and share it with others via Windows Live SkyDrive. Just save your notebook to the cloud with a free Windows Live ID, and then access your stuff with the OneNote Web App or with OneNote Mobile on your Windows Phone 7 or on your iPhone.
Here're some of the ways in which the free planner notebook can help you:
- Gathering inspiration. Easily clip or copy and paste every image and idea that inspires you into your OneNote notebook. Pasted items automatically include each item's URL (Web address). If design sketches are key to your plan, it's also easy to insert scanned images into OneNote -- right within the text and website images you've already included.
- Sharing your plan. Whether you're keeping contractors up to speed, or soliciting feedback and recommendations from experienced friends and family, OneNote makes it easy to keep it all in one place and to share your plans with anyone you want.
- Consolidating documents. Keeping track and referencing everything, from permits and contracts to design layouts, is always a necessary and important part of any home renovation. With OneNote, simply insert file printouts and attachments and then easily search the text (even text in pictures) to locate exactly what you need, when you need it.
- Being budget conscious. Insert your budget table under the Budget section tab in our notebook to keep track of all those nice-to-haves and must-haves, and don't forget to add 10-15% to cover unexpected expenses. OneNote can even do basic calculations for you as you type out figures.
Just download the free OneNote home remodel planner and have the perfect foundation for creating the home of your dreams.
