So maintain tags to a minimum — and also determine currently just how you’re mosting likely to call them. If you have actually 30 notes labelled “funds,” yet after that likewise 75 notes labelled “money”, particular, you need to keep in mind to look for both.
Conserve your memory and also your mind power. Simply determine now that you will certainly constantly create tags as plurals. After that you will certainly never ever read the #finances checklist of notes and also asking yourself if you have actually any type of simply labelled #finance.
