How to be more organized

Thursday, November 19, 2015

 
Since starting to blog more regularly on top of my nine to five full time job I was constantly looking for way to be more organized and not miss things. Here are few things that have helped me keep more organized:

One day timer. Its one place to have all my things. I found having two (one for the blog, one for work) kept me organized but than there was so many thing and I had to check two places plus my phone. So I bough a bigger day timer and now keep track of all events and things that need to be done for both. 

Evernote. I use evernote to jot down ideas, task that I need to complete and random things that come to me at time when I don't have pen or paper. (Gym.. or walking!)

Mint. This is a finical  budgeting app where you can link all your accounts. Instead having to long into different account - here you can check your balances and do your budget. The app also sorts your purchases into your budget categories so you can see where you are spending your money.

Sunrise. I have two co-contributors so sharing a calendar and assigning tasks can be challenging because not everyone uses the same phone (or e-mail provider) and we know those don't play well with each other. I do a monthly task calendar on paper (yes, I am old school) but sunrise is easy to navigate and will work on most smart phones. I use sunrise to sync all our calendars and add blog events that need to attended. 

7 minute workout.  I am queen of making excuses of why I can't make it to the gym. This app makes sure I can't use the " I don't have time to work out" excuse... like who doesn't have 7 minutes? 

Wunderlist. Ultimate list maker app that allows you to share your list. This works well for when planning holidays or looking for places to eat.

What do you do to keep organized?
