Review: Do it Tomorrow App

So I've been using this Do It Tomorrow app on and off for about a year.  What it comes down to is a basic to-do list. It's not my daily to-do list, that's handwritten however I use it as a list of things I would like to get accomplished at some point.  I use it as a reminder.  It is my master list of tasks.




How many times have you been out and about then remember - "damn I wanted to do that"  but you know as soon as you get home you'll forget - well I use this app for those moments.  I check it periodically during the week to see if I need to add any of them to my daily to-do list.

I have used other to-do list apps but they get so complicated with a list for this and a list for that and oh I should have lists for the kids and soon I was drowning in lists.  Do it tomorrow app reminded me that I should keep it simple.  So I have two lists the master list and the daily list.  My master list is my do it tomorrow app that I can ignore and not get overwhelmed.  My daily to-do list is a thoughtful list I make each morning of things I know I can accomplish that day and if I get them all done early - that is when I turn to my Do it Tomorrow list.

Here's a quick snapshot of my thoughts on the app:

Neutral:
  • It's one list - I say neutral because I like this as a feature.  When I had several lists I got confused and overwhelmed.  But I can see how a super organized person would like the complicated lists.
  • Ultimately it comes down to being just a to-do list - no bells or whistles - again I prefer that, see reason above.
Pros:

  • Keeps track of your tasks
  • Chrome allows you to add it as an extension to its browser
  • List items are placed in the cloud so you can access it from anywhere that has an App (itunes or android market)  I have mine on my tablet.
  • List automatically moves to tomorrow if you don't cross it off
  • You can move things to the next day and focus on the ones you want to get done today
  • you can move tasks on the list up and down
  • Pretty user interface - I think visually appealing is a good thing
  • Simple
  • It's free although there is a paid service to integrate Google Tasks for $1.99 I did not have this

Cons:
  • The extension only lets you add items to your list, you can't see other items on your list without opening the app
Note: I didn't get paid for this.  I know there are so many blog posts (not mine) that do this but not this one.

  1. I like the name! It has this edgy tension of being procrastination or the opposite of it!

    I'm experimenting with stormboard (for the task I cooperate on with my webdesigner) and using Evernote.

    1. funny you should say that - it's tagline is "the to-do list for procrastinators"

      I use Evernote too but I don't really use the task feature - it too becomes just a bunch of lists everywhere.

  2. What a great idea! I need to download this. I like how if you don't cross a task off it automatically moves it to the next day so you don't forget about it. This will take care of all the stickies I have laying around with things I need to get done that I've been putting off doing and throwing away! Ha! Thanks for sharing!

    1. So true and I know for the android app you can have a widget for your tablet, that show the top few items on the list. I don't use it because I'd like to stick to my daily list and I have a calendar widget up which is all I want to see when I use my tablet.

  3. Sounds like something I definitely NEED! Thanks for the info.

  4. That sounds interesting. Mostly I am trying to keep Apps to a minimum, but maybe I should consider this one. My favorite feature? List automatically moves to tomorrow if you don't cross it off.

    1. Not that I mind either way - it's more curiosity, why you are keeping apps to a minimum?

  5. This sounds like it might be just the thing I need to get my social media schedule together!

  6. This kinds of reminds me of the reminders list on iphones. I use that list for everything and sometimes make separate lists for special things.

A Procrastination Coach? - maybe later

Nearing the end of the holiday season usually means last minute shopping, baking, and celebrating.  Then, around the corner, is the New Year.  In the back of my mind, my new year's resolutions are forming, like a de-cluttered house, a larger inventory and my very own website.

However, the end of the year should be about reflection as well and what we've accomplished.  I started a regular blog, became a youtube partner as well as being invited to a couple of youtube conglomerates, and in this last month, I opened my etsy shop.  All this from my home office with distractions like the laundry and dishes begging to be cleaned, a dog that barks when I'm on the phone and kids who think I am there to wait on them hand and foot.(And yet, they are always surprised when I don't <shaking head>)

Along my 2013 journey, I virtually met the procrastination coach.  Her blogs were insightful and useful.  I learned about why we procrastinate, how to recognize it and how it can be …

Volunteering and Connecting to the Community

“OK, ladies, we need to pick a volunteer program for the year,” I said to the Girl Scout troop.  I heard a sigh.  “What?” I asked, “Is there a problem?  Not only is this a good thing to do, it looks good on your college application.”
“Yeah, we know,” one girl spoke up, “but, I don’t really like volunteering.  We do a lot of work and we don’t see how it’s helping anyone.”
I looked around the room and saw the girls nodding.  Most of our volunteering had to do with helping those who were anonymous.  We collected food for the food bank, clothes for the needy, pet food and toys for the needy at Christmas.  They did the work but did not see the result for the protection of the family in need, so we don’t get to see the result of her hard work.  They was not getting the satisfaction of a job well done.  How could I argue with that? This year we tried things differently.  

A Simple Halloween Invitation How-to

Each year we throw a Halloween Party for our kids friends.  We have two big strains, new ideas to spook people in our basement haunted house and .... the invitations. My kids insist on making them and frankly the cost for invitations can be pricey when you are inviting more than the 8 pack.  To get our invitations done in quickly but with some flair I used some scrapbooking tools.

Ingredients:
Halloween Paper Punch Edging
2 sided Halloween Scrapbooking paper
Halloween fonts - do an online search
Computer paper
Edging Scissors

If you're a scrap booker, you probably have all these already.  If not, you can find them in any craft store.  The most expensive is the paper punch.  If it's beyond your budget, use the edging scissors which you can pick up fairly reasonably.  Then after the holiday, look for it on clearance :)

Directions:
Cut scrapbook paper to the size you want.  You can go for 5" x 7" to fit into an envelop but these invites could be handed out on their own.
