Time-Saving Apps
There are so many time-saving app’s out there, it’s hard to know where to start! Here are a few of our favourites that we actually use and can’t live without:


This nifty, little app is great for all things to-do list related.  You can set dates + reminders, add notes and files, even invite people to join in on your to-do list fun.  Best of all, it’s free.  We love free!  As its cloud based, you can access your account from your phone, computer, tablet and your smartwatch


If you’re looking to get uber-organized, then Evernote is the app for you! You can download it to your phone or use it on your desktop and what it does in a nutshell is remember everything that’s important to you in an easy and organized fashion.  You can clip and save articles from the web, create lists and manage projects.  Whatever you want to keep and stay on-top of, Evernote can handle. And yes, they also have a free option! It’s truly an organizer’s dream app.


If you’re looking for a project-based app that’s easy to use, then Trello is your best friend.  This app uses a Kanban board approach which can give you big picture or minute detail.  You can create lists to your heart’s content and yep, they have a free option too.
