10 Tools to Organize Your Life
Believe it or not, 2015 is winding down to a close. This is a great time to reevaluate what’s working and what’s not working for you in terms of personal organization. So I thought, what better time to share a list of tools to organize your life?! While that perfect tool to get and stay organized may vary for each individual, depending on your needs, the following list covers 10 tools that I think you’ll find incredibly useful.
Now, let’s get organized!
10 Tools to Organize Your Life
Mindnode: A tool that makes it easy to visualize brainstorms and mind maps. Great for all the visual thinkers out there.
Popplet: An alternative to Mindnode. Popplet is a tool to capture ideas and brainstorm, and is really simple to use with a fun interface.
Wunderlist: A beautifully designed list app that keeps you on top of all of your tasks. I personally love that I can seamlessly access it across all my devices so I never lose track of my to-do items.
Any.do: Another beautiful task management app that syncs across devices. Clean and simple design makes this an insanely user-friendly app.
Trello: There are not enough words to express how amazing Trello is. We use this project management tool as a team to stay organized at Heyo, but I also use it personally for just about everything I need to keep organized in my life (shopping lists, errands and personal projects). It integrates with tons of other apps and is so easy to use and intuitive.
IFTTT: Connects all your favorite apps to work together (and save you time). IFTTT (pronounced “gift” without the “g”) uses recipes as powerful connections between products and apps based on the statement “if this then that.”
Zapier: Another app automation tool very similar to IFTTT but Zapier works with hundreds of apps.
Shoeboxed: This app is a great way to stay organized when it comes to spending. Shoeboxed scans your paper receipts, digitizes the information and then uses it to track your expenses.
Google Drive: This list wouldn’t be complete without Google Drive. I personally use drive for storing absolutely everything important (photos, documents, etc.) and at Heyo, we use documents, spreadsheets and more through Drive that we can all easily collaborate on. You can get 15GB of free storage, but I’ve upgraded my account to 100GB and only pay $1.99/month – super affordable and well worth it in my opinion.
Pinterest: Stay with me here. I know this sounds like a bit of a stretch, but Pinterest is truly a great way to visually organize content (and is way more than just a place for finding cute outfits or delicious recipes). I use Pinterest when I need inspiration for designs, layouts, landing pages and so much more. You can easily organize pins into boards, collaborate on boards with others and you can even use the Pin It button in Chrome to bookmark articles on the web for later.
