If you’ve had any kind of extended conversation with me then eventually the subject would have turned to this wondrous app. I am very obsessed and use it for almost every aspect of my life. It has helped with so many different things, that I completely and utterly believe that my life would fall apart with out it.
Basically, Wunderlist is an app that allows you to create lists. Nothing overly ground breaking, but let me show you how I use it.
One of the best parts of the app though, is the ability to share your lists. So Jamie and I use this as our groceries list. So as an example of how useful this is. Lets say he’s got the day off and uses up all the bread (typical), he can update our groceries list and I’ll get a notification straight away. Then I can pop to the shops on the way home, tick bread off the list and he’ll get notified that I’ve picked it up. Best. System. Ever.
We also use this for house chores as you can set your list items to repeat. We set each chore to repeat once a week, every two weeks or so on, so that we know when we really need to get certain chores done. You can also assign different tasks to different people. Which is great for keeping track of who needs to do what (and no, Jamie still hasn’t dusted or cleaned the bathroom).
We also use it to keep track of different things we want to buy, watch or visit. It’s a lovely way of keeping organised in a relationship, but you have to get your other half in on it too, which can be challenging. I’m very lucky that Jamie enjoys using it too and that I even have lists with my best friend about tea, Youtubers, books, make up and more, so that we can share any cool things we come across.
If you click on each task as well, you can add due dates, reminders, sub tasks, notes, comments and files. I will preload all the information about assignments into each task and add subtasks for each minute detail that I need to complete as well. Honestly, this is the most useful uni tool I have come across.
I also use this for blog post ideas, for keeping note of my content calendar for this blog and even for changes I want to make on the blog. I even have lists dedicated to my short, medium and long term goals, plus a wishlist of things that I really want to save up and buy!
So, if you’re already a super organised person or a complete scatter brain, I recommend downloading this app immediently. Then get your partner, your parents, your friends, everyone in on it too. Especially if you’re the kind of person that brings a notebook around with you just so you can scribble out lists whenever you get a spare moment, like I used to.
What’s your way of staying organised? Let me know in the comments.
Thanks for reading!
