I don’t know about you, but I don’t remember what life was like before I got my smartphone. There’s so many amazing things you can do with those things. One thing I use my smartphone for is to stay organized. So today I’m sharing some great apps to help streamline your daily life.
Shoeboxed is an app for organizing your receipts– perfect for a small business owner like myself. It even offers mileage tracking, something I’m required to do with my day job as an in-home infant and toddler developmental therapist. Specifically, Shoeboxed offers the following: “instantly archive receipts on-the-go transform receipt images into accurate, human verified data; access an archive of your categorized, IRS-accepted receipts; enjoy one-click, hassle-free mileage tracking; generate email expense reports in seconds; export expenses to QuickBooks, Wave Accounting, Excel, Outright, Xero and dozens of other tools.”
Key Ring is an app that allows you to scan and store existing store loyalty cards. That way you don’t have to keep 100 of those little cards on your keys or in your purse. When you need to use a loyalty card you pull it up on the app and scan it from your phone. You can even share the account with your significant other.
CamScanner is a phone PDF creator app. I love this app because it’s basically a mobile scanner. If I need to get a document to someone all I have to do is open the app, take a photo of the document, CamScanner automatically crops the image and turns the image into a PDF, and then email or fax the PDF from my phone. It’s definitely easier than firing up my computer and using my 3-in-1 printer.
OurGroceries is perfect for keeping your grocery list organized. You can share your grocery list with everyone in your household so if your husband is running by the store on his way home there’s no need to send him a long list in a text message. Instead he can access the app and see everything on your list.
CARROT is a to-do list app with character. As the website says, “You keep her happy by getting things done in real life. She’ll reward you. But be careful! Slackers make CARROT upset. You do not want to make her upset.” In addition to it being like a game to get things done (and CARROT’s glowing personality), I enjoy the basic interface.
I hope you find these apps to be useful in managing aspects of your daily life. There’s an app for almost anything, especially to help you organize your day-to-day duties and activities.
Do you use any of these apps? Have any organization apps you’d like to share?
