Favorite Apps

If you can't tell from my super sporadic blogging lately, I've been super busy! My work hours are really flexible (a nice synonym for erratic and unpredictable) which is both a blessing and a curse. Some days I don't work at all, and other days I'm on my feet for twelve hours!

My biggest work priority is organization. I'm obsessed with keeping lists and updating planners, and I have some go-to apps that I constantly use to keep myself on track and focused. The great thing is that, as bloggers, we all need some help in this department, so here are a couple of my favorite apps. Hopefully they help you too!

1. Trello. I just started using this app for work this week and I'm all about it. It lets you create different Boards for different projects, and you can add notes, comments, to-do lists, reminders, and Boards within Boards to keep everything on track. You can also add other people to Boards and assign tasks to them, which is super helpful.

2. Venmo. This is a great app for keeping track of debts and paying people with the tap of your finger. You input your bank information so that you can just pay right there without having to go to your bank app over and over. It's easy to send bills to people and all you have to do to pay one is to type in the amount and hit Send! Venmo is great for everything from paying bills to client lunches to getting coffee with your friends.
3. MyFitnessPal. This isn't exactly an organizational app, but it does help to keep me on track foodwise when what I'm eating is the least important thing going on in my life! It tracks your food intake and counts calories for you in addition to breaking everything down into nutritional information. It's great if you want to lose weight or even just if you want to keep doing what you're doing while being more aware of what you're putting into your body. I'm kind of addicted to it.

4. Google Keep. I love this app because I love making lists, and that's exactly what you can do with it. Basically you just make lists of whatever you want - I have my daily workout routine, my to-do list, my shopping list, and Christmas present ideas on my Google Keep right now - and color-code them, which appeals to my organizational obsessions. It's simple but easy and I love using it.

5. Genius Scan. I work with a lot of contracts in my job so it's super easy and convenient to just sign and take pictures of them with this app. You can take pictures of anything with it though, from important documents to handwritten notes to recipes to food menus, and immediately send, share, or archive them. It's basically a simplified scanner to use on-the-go.

The best thing about all these apps is that they're 100% free! I use them all on the reg and I seriously love them. They're helpful at work but versatile enough for everyday use as well. I hope some of them can help you get organized too!
