Being a working parent can often feel like an impossible juggling act, where there are just never enough hours in the day and there are occasions when the sheer volume of ‘stuff to do’ can overwhelm. Thankfully, today there is a time saving app for everything and there are many available to choose from that are designed to help you save time while balancing your work and home life. Of course where there’s choice there’s stress, so to save you time and give you reassurance I’ve picked just a few to help you divide and conquer:
Binary Hammer 30/30 is one of the best time-management apps I know, this task-manager just helps you get stuff done. Set up your list, allocate time for each job and you’re off!
Evernote helps sync your brain, working life, family life, and pretty much all the tired, grey areas in between! It lets you jot down ideas on the go, store paperwork, business cards, document kids’ artwork and all the other ephemera cluttering up your biscuit-lined handbag.
Boomerang is a really handy email add-in for Gmail, perfect for those times when you are working at odd hours and don’t want to your clients to know, allowing you schedule emails to send at 9am when you’re actually on the school run. Genius!
Wunderlist is not just an ordinary to-do list app. It allows you to sync your data across all your devices and share with family and colleagues too. Use it to manage your day-to-day errands, work activities, and shopping list!
