Do you like the new Netflix series "Tidying Up with Marie Kondo" as much as I do? I've long loved her book "The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up" and I'm so excited to watch her in action. And her work serves as an excellent reminder to delete older, under-used apps, replace poor performing ones with better designed competitors, and use some new apps that will help you organize your life and keep it that way. Here's what has me excited this year!
Looking to improve your organization? These apps will help.
Do you like organize-y things as much as I do? Yep, I'm the girl who got a label maker for Christmas this year - and I've used it so much I've already had to buy a second spool of labels! Of course, it's not just practical household items that can be employed in organization. There's a ton of great apps for your smart phone that can keep your life, business, and community commitments on track.
Here are some apps that have really impressed me lately - and I'm not the only one. They are all rated at least 4/5 in the app store. I was so happy to appear on CTV Ottawa Morning Live to tell everyone all about them - and now you can see the list here!
Booking a flight for the holidays? Searching for a great deal? Here are the best apps to help you along the way.
This list of my favourite flight apps is a deeply personal one. Part of my work includes being a travel writer (at TurnipseedTravel.com) and, as such, the more money I’m able to save on flights, the more money I’m able to spend on travel. And, besides, who doesn’t love a bargain no matter what it is?!
And each October, my bargain hunting instincts go into overdrive, as I’m searching for fantastic holiday flights for family. But getting Christmas bargains is easier said than done! These are exactly the apps I use every time, for every trip – and this is the exact order I use them in. Happy traveling!
Hey there, spring! Is it really you? Well, admittedly, that remains to be seen but a final puff of winter is no excuse to delay spring cleaning. I must confess that I LOVE spring cleaning.
There's just something about shaking off the dust and opening up the windows to fresh air that makes you feel like you're pushing the reset button on so many things. This is the BEST time of year to get organized, declutter, refresh, and recharge. And, of course, there are apps for that!
What a week it's been Ottawa! So cold, then so snowy - then so cold again! And I know we're not the only city that's been suffering. There's only one way to cope - to dream of an escape to the beach.
For a lot of people, the beach is where they go to take a break from technology but there's a ton of cool apps that can help you plan the trip of a lifetime - or at least keep you in good spirits until the snow melts.
