Mileage, Taxes, Evernote and the REALTORĀ®

We are all guilty of it.

You know what I am talking about, don’t pretend you don’t know. Even worse, don’t pretend you actually do this, because the majority of us don’t.

I’m talking about creating a log…no, not a Captain’s Log like Captain Picard (although that will be cool once we can do that in our vehicles. It’d be even cooler if we could just email the results at the end of each quarter to our accountants…).

No, I am talking about a vehicle log and tracking your mileage. The one your accountant/bookkeeper says you HAVE to keep. The one we say we do, but don’t really. Ever heard of Evernote? No? Ok then…watch the video below.

Using Evernote to Create a Vehicle Log

I have broken this down for you and made it Uber Simple to do. If you are an Evernote user, and I hope you are, this will become second nature to you as it has to me.

It’s as simple as creating 1 notebook and then multiple notes within that notebook every time you fill up. You take a picture of the reciept and save it as a document. Take a picture of your odometer to capture the mileage. Make a note of the date that you filled up.

It’s as simple as that. If you want a step by step tutorial I have created a quick 2 minute video for you to watch. I did this off my iPhone 5s, I would suggest using your phone as opposed to a tablet because, really, do you carry your iPad/Tablet with you everywhere?

Check out the video below. If you have questions about Evernote you can always shoot me an email at and I would be more than happy to help you out.
