Man a personal assistant would be nice. Come on you have to admit you have thought about it. Someone to help you keep track of all the stuff you need to remember and do. I can just imagine how nice that would be. But money is just not being delivered in truckloads to my house so this is really out of my price range. So of course I have to look for other methods to help me become a little more organized.
Well recently I was reintroduced to Springpad. I signed up for it quite a while ago and somehow forgot about it. I need some type of help getting organized because I have stuff everywhere, so I thought why not give it a try again.
Springpad is basically a way to to help you keep track of your books, movies, recipes, restaurants, bookmarks from the web, task lists and products for free! It is really easy to use. Setup is painless and you can sign up using your Twitter or Facebook account. There is even a app for it so I added it to my iPod Touch. It was simple to add stuff with just a touch that are near me or with just a simple word search. I am not sure which i like better, using the internet or my ipod, but I do like having options. I am a options type of girl.
If you have not used Springpad you just might be surprised at what you find. There are quite a few applications that you can use to help you out:
- weekly meal planner
- movie tracker
- blog post manger
- people I meet
- my kitchen pantry
- weekly chore manager
- emergency list
- plan your day
- wardrobe tracker
I honestly believe that Springpad can help in taking the step in the right direction to become more organized. Everything is in one place, anyone can use it, works on the internet, mobile phones and iPod, and it’s free. Feel free to follow me on Springpad, http://springpadit.com/1stopmom.
