You have to be organised if you have four children ….
Or maybe you just HAVE to be organised if you’re ME – in any case there are 3 tools that I couldn’t live without.
- Google Calendar – I love this. I can plug in kids after school activities, that repeat every week, and also add extra things whether I’m on my computer, or on my phone, or just mucking around on my iPad – it can be used on all mediums, and it notify’s me when stuff is about to happen – this tool alone frees up A LOT of my mind space and cuts down on stress
- Asana – this is a planning and project tool – also free and something that I’ve come to only recently. If you are juggling work and parenthood, or community service with your parenting, or you just have a lot of things on the go – I can’t recommend this enough. It also syncs with Google Calendar and helps me get things done when they NEED to get done – also freeing up my mind.
- This is a new toy as well – and this one is not a freebie BUT I love it. I call it a lifestyle tool and it is my Samsung Gear Fit – it syncs with my Samsung phone, and vibrates to let me know if texts are coming into my phone. I’ve also synced it to notify me of emails, and Facebook Chat messages. It also vibrates and lets me know who is calling me – I use my phone much less now as a result – and it’s a fitness tool, pedometer, and trainer. LOVE it – everybody that hangs around me for longer than 5 minutes gets a quick – or long – shout out to my Gear Fit.
This is what I’m loving at the moment!
