how to get more digitally organized

I am incredibly guilty of hoarding physical objects – books, clothing I don’t wear, magazines I never read, dog treats, etc. – but I am just as bad if not worse when it comes to my electronic life, except there’s even more of it.

Managing your to do list

Managing your to do list

I have always been a big to do list person when it comes to managing my regular tasks. Recently, I’ve taken task management to a whole new level. In the last few years, I have used almost every task management system in the book. So, I wanted to round up my favorites – some are apps or websites, and some are written systems – for anyone starting school this week and already feeling like the tasks are pouring in. 1.
