We leave for our honeymoon TOMORROW NIGHT and while the potential for excitement is overwhelming, the fact that I haven’t started packing yet is causing a bit of an anxiety attack. It’s true, this is literally all I have packed thus far:
I had grand intentions of buying adorable beach-going ensembles to commemorate the special event, and while I did manage to get in a mani/pedi, a new shirt and a bathing suit, my efforts have been dismal. However, from the glass half full POV, I did write my packing list last night and this leads me to my next Digital Favorites: Wunderlist.
As you may know, I LOVE lists. Nothing gives you quite the organizational satisfaction of doing an all-out brain dump 50 items long, and the empowerment that comes with crossing each of these items off. However, carrying around a notepad, along with all of a digital dudettes must haves can be cumbersome. Plus, I’m the type of person that if my to-do list gets too messy, I start a brand new one…just because I’m crazy. Thus, the appeal of Wunderlist.
Wunderlist proclaims itself to be “Task Management At Its Best” and I believe it — it’s the most seamless to-do list app that I’ve seen thus far. With one account, you can create hundreds of lists, all with their given tasks, that live in the cloud. That way, you can access your lists anywhere: online, from the PC or Mac desktop app, from the iPhone or Android app – pretty much anywhere you’ll need it!
Want to be uber organized? You can share entire lists or individual tasks via email, or invite people to collaborate on the list. Of course, the standard printing, deadlines, reminders, search and other associated functionality is included. For the design aficionado in you, it’s simple, clean, sharp and you can choose your Wunderlist background…now I only wish it had the ability to upload photos as backgrounds.
And of course…it’s all FREE!
While I’ve only just begun using Wunderlist, I can already see how it will help make my digital and running life that much more organized. No more writing random one-offs on the iPhone Notes app and no more re-writing lists more times than I’d care to admit because they look “messy.”
I plan on creating a “pre-race” list that I can reference each time I’m packing for a race, but what would you use Wunderlist for? How do you stay organized? List lover, too?
P.S. I was not contacted by anyone to write about Wunderlist. It’s just a personal favorite that I thought I’d share with you all.
