Running a household is a full-time job in and of itself. You can’t get out of it or away from it, but you can manage your home more efficiently. There are many great apps out there that can help you better plan, organize and simplify managing your home.
The foundation of good organization is a good calendar. Google Calendar is straightforward and easy to use, plus it easily syncs and integrates with many other applications. What makes Google Calendar a must is the ability to share your calendar with others. If you and your partner share calendars it makes coordinating on appointments or events much easier. It’ll end the question, “Do we have anything planned on Tuesday?” forever.
Remember the Milk
Remember the Milk is a fantastic list making app that makes it easy to keep track of all of your to-dos. What really sets this app apart from other list-making apps is its tags and filters feature. You can sort tasks by priority, estimated time to complete, and more! The app also allows you to add subtasks to tasks so you can break down bigger projects into smaller chunks.
You can also get reminders the way you want to be reminded, whether that’s emails or text message reminder. The app also integrates with Google Calendar and other productivity tools.
As a bonus, you can also assign tasks to other Remember the Milk users. Get your partner to install this app and you can add tasks such as…picking up milk from the store, to their list.
