A shared calendar app that manages the family schedule, shopping lists, doctor appointments, and more. It’s color-coded for each member of your family to make it easier to keep track of everyone’s happenings. You’ll see at a glance who needs to go where and when, receive reminders, and more. It’s free, with upgrades available.
A simple task management tool to help you get things done. It’s a to-do list that can be used anywhere across devices, whether you’re planning a party, sharing a shopping list with a partner, or managing multiple work projects. A bonus for projects involving more than one person is that others can have access to the same working list. For example, as I work with clients, they can have access to the lists I’ve created on their behalf, and edit/mark off tasks as well. Free; upgrade available.
A rare form of task management tool that allows you to repeatedly sub-divide your tasks into more manageable pieces while still presenting a clean and intuitive user experience. Not only can you set up custom labels and filters for your tasks, as well as templates for recurring projects, but it also has location-based reminders so that when you’re at the grocery story, it pings you with your reminder list. $29/annually with upgrade available
Capture every day tasks, organize big projects, share lists, and more. And it might just offer more features than any other to-do service. It handles multiple priorities and is simple, clean and functional. Free; upgrade available.
StickK is a unique motivational and accountability tool helping you with goal setting. It lets you set a long-term goal with weekly check-ins. When you set the goal, you commit a sum of money to meeting that goal. On every week when you’ve made the weekly goal (or kept up your habit), you get to keep your money. But if you fail to make the weekly goal or practice your habit, some of your money goes to charity. (I said it was unique!) Free; upgrade available.
A collaboration tool that organizes your projects and lists into boards. In one glance (across the board), you can see what’s being worked on, who’s working on what, and where something is in a process. It can attach files, add checklists, assign users and due dates, search, add labels, and more. Free; upgrade available.
Need reminders of mundane but important tasks and don’t want to clutter your calendar or GTD manager? Whether it’s to take vitamins before bed, water your plants every two weeks, change the batteries in your smoke detector annually, etc., Due keeps you on track. $4.99 one-time purchase.
A money-tracking software, Mint’s primary service allows you to track bank, credit card, investment, and loan transactions and balances through a single user interface, as well as make budgets and goals. It sends you alerts via email that are a useful feature as well. Free.
They’ll stop your junk mail for you. That’s right, they contact dozens of marketing organizations on your behalf to stop all the unwanted catalogs and mailings that you list for them. For five years, they’ll update your service anytime you move, marry, change your name, or add new catalogs to your list. $35 for you and all adults in your household, and you’re covered for five years.
