You’ve heard the saying, “There’s an app for that,” right? Well, when it comes to keeping your life in order, did you know that there really are apps for that, too? Leave it to the developers of smartphones and technology sites to actually create apps that make it easier to keep your life in check – and thank goodness for them!
Being a mom has got to be one of the hardest jobs on the planet. Between getting your kids up and ready for the day, toting them back and forth to school, extracurricular activities and play dates, making sure they do their homework, cleaning the house… the list goes on and on… And if you are working, add all of the responsibilities of that – and the rest of your life into the picture, and it’s no wonder you sometimes forget to turn the oven on when you are making dinner or leave a cup of coffee on the roof of your car.
So, if there are apps that make your life a little bit easier to juggle, why not take advantage of them? They really can help you keep track of the constant stream of activities that happen each day – and they may even help you remember to put the laundry into the dryer without having to rewash it three times before you do. Here’s a look at five apps that will help you keep your life in check.

Have you ever had a great idea for a work project or an activity with the kids while you were doing your grocery shopping, but totally forgot about it by the time you got home? Well, thanks to Evernote, you can keep track of those great ideas, and then some! This app captures music, texts, screenshots, links, and even allows you to jot down ideas that you have so that you can recall them at a later date. Talk about a wonderful way of keeping track of ideas.
If you’ve ever gone to the grocery store, leaving your list hanging on your refrigerator, or been left hanging without your credit card and no cash, the Grocery iQ app makes shopping a whole lot easier. This app not only allows you to keep a running list of the things that you need at the grocery store, it also lets you tally up your bill before you even get to the checkout. So, if you’re shopping on a budget and you find that you have gone over, you can put back what you don’t need to avoid spending too much.
Sharing photos with your friends and family members, and documents with your co-workers, is a breeze, thanks to Dropbox. This app allows you to create files and fill them with virtually anything, and then share them with other people. So, if your mom wants to see photos of the kids, as long as you both have Dropbox, you can quickly send them her way.
Between your email password, your online shopping account passwords, your credit card passwords, and every other password for online accounts that you have, it can be tough to keep track of them. LastPass makes sure you don’t have to. By downloading this app, you are able to store your passwords for all of your accounts. Say goodbye to clicking the frustrating “forgot password” button.
For the times you wish you had a personal assistant, reQall will now fill that role for you. Doctors appointments, business meetings, and birthday parties will never get missed again due to the helpful reminders provided by this app. Simply enter in your weekly agenda and get reminded when you want to.
