15 Apps to Keep You and Your Family Organized
Do you have resolutions to finally get your life, home and family organized this year? You don’t have to go it alone! These organizing apps and websites will help you with everything from emptying your inbox, to decluttering your closet. There is something here for everyone in the family; mom, dad, students and more.
Organize your schedule, papers and to-do’s
Keep all your files, photos, docs, and videos in one place using Dropbox. Share large files with anyone — including those without an account — from any of your devices. Definitely one of our favorite organizing apps!
Simple yet powerful, Todoist is ideal for those quick reminders about groceries, as well as more extensive tasks. A labeling and filtering system means you can use it to juggle your work commitments alongside your personal tasks. An overview of the day and the week to come makes it easy to prioritize what needs to be done and when. You can share lists with others using this organizing app too.
This one has also been featured as one of my monthly Leslie Likes but it is such a good one that we just had to share it again! Genius Scan is basically a smart scanner in your pocket, allowing you to quickly scan your documents on the go and export them as JPEG or multi-page PDF files. This is a perfect way to empty out that overstuffed file cabinet! Another one of our favorite organizing apps. Read more about it in our previous post here.
Great organizers for families!
Picniic is the family assistant that helps families become more organized, productive, and connected than ever before.

Get rid of the things you no longer use by donating or selling
We all have stuff we don’t use. Stuffstr makes it easy to lighten your load and keep things out of the landfill. With Stuffstr, you can resell stuff, offer it to friends, or have it delivered to Goodwill for free—all at the tap of a button.
Don’t trash your stuff – recirculate it with Stuffstr!
Letgo is the fastest growing mobile marketplace to buy and sell locally. Quickly sell things you list on Letgo and find great deals nearby. Electronics, games, clothes, cars, furniture, décor and much more.
On the homepage, search for a textbook or class-required reading, compare pricing, and sell it for the most money – it’s that simple. When you search by entering your ISBN onto the website’s homepage, you’ll see many different offers from various vendors, so you can really find the best price for your textbook. Before you pick a vendor, make sure to read reviews by other users.
This app is unique because you can only sell items with a barcode – so, CDs, DVDs, books, games, and tech. You enter an item’s barcode and/or number for a “tech” item, and the app will immediately provide an offer. Like the offer? Pack your items in a box, ship it to Decluttr for free, and get paid via check, PayPal, direct deposit. Additionally, you have the option to donate your “order value” to a charity.
Save all of your little one’s treasures, artwork, and keepsakes while reducing paper clutter
Never again feel guilty about throwing away artwork your kids bring home. Get rid of the clutter and start to enjoy your child’s work. Turn your Artkive into a high quality, hardcover book or other great products (like phone cases, blankets, coasters, pillows and more) with little more than the touch of a button!
This is one of the great organizing apps that we have featured on our blog but love so much that we also had to include it here! Keepy is an app that allows you to organize, save, privately share, enrich, and treasure your kids’ memories as they grow. Whether it’s artwork, schoolwork, an award, or a photo, with Keepy you can easily cherish and look back on these special moments for years to come.
Other great tools to help organize your life

This is a mobile application that is committed to making the local moving and delivery process friendly, simple, and convenient. Truxx connects people who have local hauling or delivery needs with truck owners in their area that have the vehicle to do the job.
Organizing apps are great but there are some great websites out there too! Here are two of our favorites.
FotoBridge is actually a website and not an app but we had to include it. It is the easiest and most convenient way to scan photos and digitally convert large collections of slides, 35mm negatives, Polaroids, and home movies to high-quality dvds. Check it out at fotobridge.com.
This is another website worth including. Many people have a pile of treasured old t-shirts you just can’t bear to throw away. Campus Quilt is dedicated to turning your old clothes into lasting memories in the form of fun and functional t-shirt quilts. They make quilts from Lap sizes up to King size and you can view all of the options at campusquilt.com.
