For many of us, summer’s arrival also means the arrival of heavy-duty house projects. With warmer temperatures and plenty of daylight, we’ve finally got a chance to be outside getting organized, cleaning the garage, making overdue repairs or maintaining the yard.
I’m highlighting some wonderful apps this month that provide invaluable resources for tackling projects inside and out. They’re almost like having a “digital handyman” around—they’ll keep track of your chores and make sure you get things done more efficiently, meaning you’ll still have plenty of time to sit back and relax before the sun goes down!
Staying on task is a breeze using Todoist, for Android and iPhone. It’s a handy place to organize and save all your to-do lists, and is really simple to use and navigate. You set up folders for different projects, select due dates for recurring jobs and can even share task lists with others who are working with you, so everyone can keep track of getting their share done.
Letgo, also for Android or iPhone, is a mobile marketplace, ideal for both buying and selling home goods. Need to get rid of an old kitchen table or lawn mower? With Letgo, you can quickly post your items and connect with interested local buyers, as well as finding deals on things others are selling. You simply can’t beat the convenience—you can take and upload photos of your item right from your phone, and have your ad up and running in seconds!
