By Heather Grass | June 30, 2020

The best way to clear your mind and organize your thoughts is to get everything in your head down on paper. Fortunately, there are now a multitude of apps and tools available that work much better than post-it notes.

Below is a list of apps (in no particular order) to help you manage your daily to-do list better. And if you’re still feeling overwhelmed, contact Haney Home Concierge and we can help you sort through your priority list and take things off your plate.

Notebook

Evernote: One of the longest-running productivity apps, Evernote has a desktop product and app that you can use to add notes in the cloud so that your info is synced up everywhere. There are free and premium plans, and you can attach docs to your notes. The search function and the ability to share notes even with people who don’t have the app make Evernote helpful.

Notion: With a slick user interface, this product covers a lot of bases with customized templates for lists, reminders, recipes, tasks, writing, goal tracking, and more. Personal plans are free, but you are limited to sharing items with five people. The cheapest paid plan is $5/mo or $48 per year. 

Todoist: This app has a unique foldering system with a calendar view that helps you see your priority list in different time frames.There’s also task management built in so that you can delegate tasks to other people.The progress tracker charts are helpful, too. There’s a free version with project caps. For unlimited projects, it’s $4/mo or $36 per year.

Google Tasks: This is a free, no-frills to-do list tracker with no collaboration features. But it does the trick for simple lists. A lot of people who use Gmail don’t even realize the tasks bar built into the product. You can also download the iOS or Android app, which syncs to the desktop gmail product. 

AnyList: This product is specifically for grocery lists. The features include lists that you can share with friends and family, a master list feature, specialized grocery categories, a foldering system, and more. The free version works on iOS and Android. To use the desktop product, it requires a paid plan.

OurGroceries: A simple app exclusively for grocery shopping, OurGroceries is available on iOS and Android. Maintain multiple shopping lists and recipes, and you can share lists. There is a free ad-supported version and a premium version with barcode scanning and photo features.

Cozi: This is a robust family-organizer app that helps parents keep track of kids’ events and activities, store their grocery list in real-time, plan meals and add recipes, and much more. There is a free and premium version of the app.

Flipp: Combine your shopping list with extreme couponing in this free and convenient app. There are 1,000+ weekly ads for deals on popular items from national retailers, and you don’t have to cut coupons anymore. The app is available on iOS and Android, and it’s free.

Trello: This is a really helpful app available on desktop and mobile devices that allows you to organize to-do lists and projects into categories and items. The visual “board” representation of the lists makes it easy to find things, and you can add attachments to items as well.
