Making use of Saved Searches in Evernote

Every Evernote note has useful metadata properties that can be exploited through the use of Saved searches.

These are the ones I find most useful:
All notes tagged by a particular tag = tag:[tag name]  e.g. tag:cooking

Apart from that there are two search functions that work with the "created" and "updated" time stamp fields on a note.

The created time stamp searches:
Any note created today = created:day
Any note created yesterday = created:day-1 – created:day (that is a concatenation of search terms)
The search term created:day -1 (matches any note created yesterday or today)
Any note created this week = created:week

The updated time stamp searches:
Similarly those time values can be used in searches against the updated time stamp field
Any note updated today = updated:day
Any note updated yesterday = updated:day-1 – updated:day (again using a concatenation of search terms)
Any note updated this week = updated:week 

To save a search use File>New Saved Search and give the search a name.

Any that you save will appear under the saved searches collection:
