For those of you who like to just jump right in you can visit
to sign up for a free trial account (where you just have to choose a username and (longish) password and provide any e-mail address) and give InEveryNook.com a try. But if you get lost or stuck or run into problems then read on ….
InEveryNook.com is a web app that helps you, your guests and the people you live with find things in your home by helping you record and keep track of where everything is. Then when you're looking for something you can enter what you're looking for into the search box at the top of most of the app's pages (including the sign in page) and get a list of all of the matching items in your home, along with their locations. And your guests (if you've allowed it) and the people you live with can do the same thing.
The app also makes it easier for you to add your things to it by providing lists of common items and storage places that you can select from. And it provides some other, related features like allowing someone to report it when they discover that you're low on, out of or missing an item that they searched for.
I created InEveryNook.com because while in an ideal world I'd have everything organized and in the first (or even second or third) place I'd look for it, I came to realize that realistically I won't ever manage that, and even if I did it wouldn't stay that way. Plus one only has so much storage space, so things that are used infrequently end up in out-of-the-way places - like the backs of cupboards or in boxes on high shelves - where it's easy to forget that you even have them, let alone find them again when you need them. But I figured that it was realistic for me to (eventually) go through all my stuff and (with a little reorganizing here and there along the way) record where each item is stored so that I could search for it again later. Which is where InEveryNook.com comes in. Now I just have to finish adding everything ….
Anyway, I hope you find it useful. If you encounter any problems or if you have a question or comment then please feel free to e-mail me about it. (Or about anything else here, for that matter.)
