Since leaving my 9 to 5, you’d think my schedule would have become less hectic. But, as a wife, freelance photographer, and a blogger, I constantly have a million things on my mind and my to-do list!

Today, I wanted to give my fellow busy bee’s an inside look at the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and a share a few tips for taking control of your schedule and your life!

In case you’re not familiar with the Samsung Galaxy Note8, it’s loaded with tons of amazing features to help improve your productivity. It’s infinity display, s pen, and ability to launch two apps at once are just a few of the reasons you’re likely to fall in love with it!

To pick up my Samsung Galaxy Note8, I stopped by my local Target because I could also grab groceries and a few other necessities. Target is the best right?!

When it comes to tackling a busy schedule, I love making lists! It can be such a challenge to accomplish everything without making note of it all. Here’s how you can use the notes app on your Samsung Galaxy Note8 to get your to-dos organized:


When utilizing lists to be productive, the Samsung Notes app is the way to go!

First, launch the app by going into the Samsung Apps folder and selecting notes.

Next, I recommend creating your note categories. You can see a few of the examples I have listed below but you can also create categories that best suit your life. A few examples might be: Monthly Bake Sale, Family Dinner, and Pet Needs.

Once you create your categories, you’re ready to create notes! Tap ‘All’ at the top and then hit the plus button on the bottom right to create a new note.

Next, tap on ‘uncategorized’ to select the category of your new note.  Then, add a title to your list. This is a great spot to get specific. For example, if your category is, Home Improvements, you would label your note with the specific improvement you’re working on e.g. Bedroom Makeover, Kitchen Cabinets, Guest Bathroom Repairs.

Now you can start creating your list of items/to-dos.

On the top left of your keyboard, you’ll notice that you have the option of using bullet points, checkboxes, or numbers for each item on your list. I love using the checkbox option because you can mark the boxes as you complete each item.

The other great thing about these notes/lists is that you can pin them to your home screen so that they’re more accessible. Just tap on the 3 vertical dots in the upper right corner and select, pin to home screen.

Now you’ll be able to quickly view your notes while on the go!


As a blogger, I also have to mention the camera! Both the front and rear facing camera have dual pixels and capture crisp images. This is perfect for shooting content on the go and snapping the perfect selfie.

Speaking of selfies, the Samsung Galaxy Note8 gives you two easy ways to capture your photo.

First, you can use the selfie camera button on the back of the phone, to the right of the flash. (The position of this button makes it much easier to press.)

You can also hold your hand up for a few seconds and the camera will set a short timer. This gives you just enough time to strike the perfect pose.


The Samsung Galaxy Note8 has a lot of great features for anyone looking to get organized! It’s so much easier to accomplish your to-dos when you have a phone that’s designed to help you “Do What You Can’t”.

Because I was able to get organized with my new phone, I was able to cook and photograph a delicious meal for the blog!

If you’re already falling in love with the Samsung Galaxy Note8, I should probably mention that there are so many additional features I didn’t even have a chance to mention in this post!

You’re definitely going to want to stop by this SAMSUNG PAGE to get the scoop on the all of its awesome features like the retina scanner, advanced processor, and facial recognition! You can also check out what other influencers and bloggers are saying by visiting the Samsung Social Hub!

It’s been such a pleasure getting to experience the Samsung Galaxy Note8! It makes a great addition to any fall morning routine. What’s better than getting your life organized while you enjoy a hot cup of coffee and plan out your day.

Now it’s time for you to win your very own Samsung Galaxy Note8!
