They make multitasking look easy
GaudiLab/Shutterstock Juggling a bunch of projects at once can get messy, but professional organizer Alejandra Costello of Alejandra.tv suggests using a project management app like Basecamp to stay organized with separate to-do lists, due dates, and schedules for each of your endeavors. Basecamp syncs your information between your computer, phone, and tablet, allowing you to start a new project or finish up an old task any time, anywhere.
They download key documents anytime, anywhere
Professional organizer Andrew Mellen recommends apps like Google Drive and Dropbox to store your documents and photos in the cloud. Not only does doing so let you retrieve your files anywhere, but it also backs them up in case of a tragic (but all too common) computer crash. Here are effortless ways to get a little more organized.
They protect their passwords
“You want to be using lots of different passwords for things because if someone gets one password and you’re using the same password for everything, then they can get into all of your accounts,” Kuper says. To keep track of all of these passwords, she uses RoboForm, an app that securely stores your login information for each of your online accounts. At $20 a year, RoboForm is a bit on the pricier side, but Kuper says free options, such as LastPass, do the trick as well. Here are other ways to protect yourself from identity theft.
