Best App for Getting Organized
Over the past months, I've literally been thinking and over-thinking myself into an anxiety-ridden panic attack on a near-daily basis, trying to stay on top of all my responsibilities - work, children, errands, housework, laundry and so on. Oh the life of a married, self-employed, work-at-home couple who also homeschool!
And so I knew that, at the very least, I needed to take action to become better organized. I needed someplace to jot down my to-do list, errands, appointments and so on. To get them out of my head, so I feel less clouded, less distracted, more focused, more confident.
I poked around in the iTunes Store and found an app that sounded promising. I thought I'd give it a go and see if it helped. I also promised a review of it here on my blog if it lived up to my high expectations.
Although I often still default to anxiety and feeling overwhelmed at the sheer amount of things I want and have to do, this app has lightened the load considerably. I can keep track of everything I have to do and it's so satisfying to check off each task or errand as I complete it.
You can also easily put tasks off, schedule recurring tasks and categorize each task to stay super organized. I've used it for a couple of weeks or so now and rely on it daily.
Best of all, apart from an optional in-app upgrade purchase ($2.99, which gets you cloud storage and a couple of other features), the app is completely FREE!

For those of us WITHOUT iPhones....I love Wunderlist. Not only very versitile, but can share your list with multiple people. This means I put my grocery list shared with me and my hubby (on his iPhone) and if I cross something off, it crosses off his list, if I ask him to stop at the store, I can adjust my list (with more details for him) and it will make those changes immediately for him. I can make separate lists for home, office, business, groceries, cooking, church, etc. Even lists for each child and share with them individually. I am LOVING it! And best yet, also free AND can be used on all phones AND online on the web!
