5 free Apps to get you more organized

Life can at times be super overwhelming but once you start planning and putting things in place, things will start getting easier. Knowing what you are supposed to do is one thing but figuring out where to start and actually completing tasks is something totally different.  Here are 5 productivity tools to help you get more done by being organized.

Google Calendar

I started getting into Calendar blocking a few weeks ago, and  I can testify that there has been a huge improvement in my output. Calendar blocking reminds me of school time tables and I feel like it is a tool that should be used past school. I don’t know the science behind it but I feel like a visual representation of something prompts action. I have a standard template but it’s not cast on stone because things change on a daily basis.


I have tried a few project management tools in the past  and none of them worked out, but a friend mentioned Notion and I’ve been hooked ever since. I love Notion because instead of having so many apps you can combine your todolist, calendars, goals, notes just to mention but a few on one platform. It gives you the chance to organize both your business and life.

Isave Money

Although I love excel, it can at times be off putting especially when it comes to personal financial management. If you want to take control of your personal finances and monthly budget, I would highly recommend that you download this app. All you have to do is key in your income and expenses as they arise and analyze at the end of the month. The beauty about it is that the more consistent you are with it, the habit of keeping track of your money will become second nature.

Any Books

The process of  searching for books on your phone or too many shortcuts is a huge nuisance for me. I like to have all my things in one place. If you are a book lover this is an app that you will enjoy. As the name suggests, you will find any book that you want to read. Another feature that I love is if you are not sure about the meaning of a word, all you have to do is highlight the word and the meaning appears on the page. That means you don’t have to go back and forth in between apps searching for meaning.


I feel like Canva is a revolutionary app when it comes to design. It is so easy to use and has so many free templates. If you are looking to upgrade your designs, Canva would be a great place to start.
