These 5 organization apps will get you ready for a fresh start this fall as the seasons change and summer comes to an end.
The summer holidays are over and school is back in session. Everywhere you look you see the store shelves lined with colorful binders, rulers, calculators, backpacks, paper and notebooks. And while you might be long finished from attending classes and studying for finals, there’s still a piece of you that likes the whole “fresh start” feeling that back to school gives you during the fall. But, since you probably don’t need a pencil case or binder, the next best thing is to organize your life with our pick of the 5 best apps, assuming you aren’t suffering from app burnout that is. Oh, and while you’re at it, it also doesn’t hurt to organize your desk and file folders too! In the meantime, check out these 5 apps to help you stay organized.

With to-do lists, a place to take notes, and the ability to save things you see online for later viewing, it truly is an all-in-one app. You can set reminders, record audio, and you can even jot down quick notes using your fingertips. It’s great for organizing your personal life and it can be used for many things like setting up your meal plan, appointments, your schedule, and much more. But, it’s also handy for organizing your work life too, whether you work from home or in an office. What’s great about Evernote is that it also syncs your account with your phone, tablet and computer automatically so you’ve always got your most up-to-date notes – no matter the device you’re on.
Free for iOS and Android Remembering passwords can be tricky so despite many warnings, people still use easy-to-remember passwords like a birthday or a dog’s name. What if you only had to remember one password? LastPass manages all your online passwords and locks them in a secure vault. This app even generates strong, random passwords for you and autofills your passwords when you visit secure sites. LastPass definitely comes in handy when you realize how many passwords you have to keep track of. There are all your social media passwords, your banking passwords, tools and apps, courses you’ve signed up for, and more. With LastPass all you need to remember is one password – your password to LastPass.
Free for iOS and Android Traveling with family can be stressful and overwhelming. Having to remember your flight info, hotel info, car rental details, and more, can be difficult when you have a large family. Especially when you have to keep track of – your actual family members! Instead, why not let TripIt create an itinerary for you? Just forward your travel confirmation emails to them and they will create a master itinerary for your trip, for free.
Free for iOS and Android Do you work from home and wonder how productive you actually are in a day? Or, maybe you work outside the home, but you’re interested in knowing how long it takes you to do errands on your day off. With Timr you can track your time on the go or at work. At the end of the day, you see the total time tracked. This helps with feelings of being productive and it makes you really visualize how much you got accomplished during the day. You can “punch in” and “punch out” your work time, and see the time spent for each of your tasks or projects. You can even track your mileage too!
