I have been working with U.S. Cellular this year telling you about apps for your phone and other interesting cell phone related tidbits. This is one of those posts.
So how are you doing on your resolutions? It’s that time in January when we all start to rethink what we resolved to do. I really didn’t make any official resolutions-I’ve been too busy with the house. I have made a resolution with our move though. I am going to think through purchases more so I don’t accumulate so much stuff and I am going to be more organized.
I’ve learned that I am a list maker. When I make lists I accomplish more. There’s just something that I love about making the check mark and checking things off my list.
I can see with more space in house, having an upstairs desk and downstairs desk, I’m going to want to start using some sort of phone app to keep my appointments and tasks lists on. Previously I’ve always just kept a calendar at my desk and would reference it.
I did a little research and found an app that I’m giving a try. It’s Any Do. I’m really excited to give it a try as it is supposed to sync between my computer and my phone. This will help me lots!
One of the other things I’ve resolved to do when we move is to make a house cleaning list. Something simple like dust on Fridays…clean floors on Tuesdays. I really do need something like this. I am not a house cleaner but have really come to realize that I feel better mentally if I am working and living in a space that isn’t as cluttered as my spaces sometimes get. I am hoping this app will help me set up lists so I can achieve that goal.
Those of you that keep your house clean and organized, how do you schedule cleaning and household tasks? Do you do certain jobs on specific days or do you have a cleaning day? I’d love some advice on how to best keep on top of things.
There are lots of other smart phone or tablet apps out there that can help you stick to your goals. There is Runtastic Six Packs for those with fitness goals, GroupMe for keeping the whole family organized on one calendar, and Check for those wanting to keep track of their finances.
This time of year is a great time to reflect, set goals and decide what you really want to accomplish in the upcoming year, and perhaps a great resolution should be to explore how using your smartphone paired with these great apps can help you reach those goals in the coming year.
Well my app is downloaded. I’m off to see if I can figure out how to use it and how to schedule in some house cleaning tasks…I’ll keep you posted on how it goes.
