The art of stashing - Deepstash

Best practices to organizing the articles you come across.


The Curation Flow

Ideas are condensed insights from the books or articles you are reading. Or podcasts. Or movies. Everything really. Here is how it works:

  1. Import the article link or book of choice to Deepstash (on the web or mobile). Alternatively you can use our browser extension to do it from the go.
  2. Read or listen carefully to identify key take-aways (methods, principles, hacks, definition, quotes, etc) that you find interesting.
  3. Write down the ideas that you want to hold on. Some general rules here:

    • Avoid copying large sections of the original text/script/book.Use your own words.
    • Make sure your ideas make sense on their own, separated from the source.
    • Lists, describing methods or steps in a process are better saved in a single idea.
    • Double check for spelling/grammar errors :)

  4. Publish your ideas. when ready.

All your followers will be notified by your submission. And the engines behind the product will distribute it to other usrers who may be interested in the topics of your ideas.


Tips & Tricks for Great Ideas

In Deepstash you find ideas on topics that interest you. These ideas are represented by short cards you can read at a glance. All ideas have a source: a book, an article, a podcast etc. And they are curated by a user like you. Now with that in mind, here are the basics:

Idea Anatomy


Think of the title as a cue. They should be short and sweet.

  • Be specific. Avoid general titles that can apply to many idea types
  • Best titles are good labels of the content inside.
  • Use keywords in your titles (relevant for the content of the idea).
  • Double check for spelling/grammar errors :)
  • Avoid questions in your titles. When you have the impulse, just make the answer the title instead of going with the question.


Pick an image to make it memorable. Or complement the content with a diagram or chart.


A good idea should have 2 paragraphs: 1, max 2 sentences in each, is the ideal.

  • The easier your ideas are to read, the better. Avoid sophisticated buzzwords.
  • Use short simple sentences to get your reader's attention.
  • Formatting help to scan ideas easily.
  • Double check for spelling/grammar errors :)
  • Bold the most important words to make the idea easier to read. If you stumble upon quotes, save them as distinct ideas.

General Tips

  • Read like Sherlock Holmes: Before writing, you should have a first pass at the content. Ideally, you should have spotted some key things that you would like to remember and share with others.
  • Your content writing should offerΒ valueΒ to the reader: insightful ideas and actionable tips. Is this idea something that you could communicate with some friends during a casual conversation?
  • The idea should be clear in isolation from the others. Think of a user who saved only one idea alone. Will it make sense after a month when returning to it?
  • Start with the conclusion, not build towards it. Ideas are not essays. Offer readers a reason to care from the first sentence. It can feel weird to skip right to the point: you may feel the need to provide some background, warm the reader up, and then get to the essential part.
  • Check spelling, punctuation & grammar before publishing.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.


Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.



Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.


Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!


Ghazala Begum

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.


Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.


Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
