MY TOOL BOX
Tools and apps to simplify your life + business
Life can be messy, disorganized, and downright paralyzing. No matter what yours looks like, the right tools can:
→Help you create a strategy and a structure for uncluttering your digital workspace.
→ Organize your family's passwords and other important data in order to avoid the 100th text from your kid asking for the Netflix password.
→ Archive all of your family's precious and valuable papers, photos, and mementos in a tidy and systematized digital filing cabinet.
→Automate all your day-to-day activities as well as your to-do lists.
→ Save you hundreds of hours looking for that one document that you can’t seem to find because you never labeled it or cataloged it.
There’s nothing worse than software(that you might be paying for) sitting unused on your digital workspace! Being intentional about your tools will ultimately save you time and money in the long run. Check out my top favs below, most of which won't break the bank!
