They organize receipts—easily
If your inbox is flooded with digital receipts, Kuper suggests using the app Shoeboxed to digitally store and organize them. “It’s really cool, especially for business people, because you have to save all your receipts for the IRS,” she says. Shoeboxed also lets you scan and sort business cards, track your mileage, and create expense reports.
They sync their calendars
Costello recommends mobile calendar apps like iCalendar, Google Calendar, and Outlook to synchronize your tasks and information between your phone and computer, making it easy to stay on top of your schedule on the go. These applications also let you store contact information, add notes, and set event reminders, eliminating the need to carry around address books, notepads, and planners, too. These are the organizing tips you’ll wish you knew all along.
They keep the whole family on top of things
Keeping track of your own schedule can be tricky enough, but add a whole family into the mix and things are bound to get a little disorganized. Fortunately, your smartphone can save you. Costello recommends Cozi, an app that lets you oversee each family member’s individual appointments, activities, and chores, so you never have to miss a soccer game or talent show again.
