Apps to Help
As our lives get busier and busier, we look for help in all sorts of ways to do everything that needs to be done each day. That can be difficult. We have our phones with us all of the time. Why not use apps to help us accomplish our goals?
Tody is a helpful app that keeps all of your household cleaning chores organized. It figures out when and what to clean because everything doesn’t need to be cleaned on a weekly basis. Some things need cleaning more often and some less. The app offers motivation to keep you on track.
Home Routines ($4.99)
This clever app creates checklists. You will get reminder notifications to help you complete your routines. Get a gold star when you finish a job! Routines automatically reset themselves to keep things moving smoothly. Your routines can be weekly, monthly or choose the number of days between tasks.
This is a wonderful app that helps you keep track of when bills are due. The app is customizable so your bills can be sorted by category or paid status. Sync data throughout your devices.
