Is your resolution each year to become more organised, only to the end of the year feeling more disorganised than ever before? This year, by using technology to help with your organisation, you may find that you are finally able to keep to your New Year’s resolution!

Cozi Family Organiser - A family calendar
Ever sat at home and wondered where an earth everyone is? Or organised a family gathering only for your kids to moan that they had already told you they have plans that day? Well, not anymore! With this app you can manage everyday life and keep the whole family in the loop with a family calendar that everyone can add or edit appointments in. You can also set reminders, as well as sharing a shopping list and to do lists.  

Todoist - A daily to do list
A daily ‘to do’ list is the perfect way to stay on top of tasks that need doing throughout the day, enabling you to tick them off as you go.

The beauty of technology is that you can have one definitive list in one place! Todoist enables you to colour-code your priorities, label things to do and share projects in one place.

Save time and stress when it comes to cooking by making a menu plan this year! Mealboard combines recipe management, meal planning, as well as grocery and pantry management into one app.

This app can be customised to help keep you on top of birthdays, traffic conditions before you leave for work, urgent e-mails, even the breaking scores from your football team! This is a perfect way to manage your life every day, including what you need to do, where you need to go and how to get around.

Spending Tracker – Track your spending…
Stay on top of your spending with this app! It enables you to log your transactions and assign them to pre-set budgets for travel, entertainment, groceries and so on. Any remaining budget can be carried over!
