Somehow since I had our last baby and we moved to this house, I have not been able to organize myself. Summer was easy since we didn't such a tight schedule. But as the new school year is approaching, I am trying to get prepared for it. Simple Mom is doing a fun and helpful series on Secrets to being Disorganized and Unproductive. Yesterday she mentioned using Google Calendar as a tool for menu planning and also managing appointments and a simple routine. I took a look at it and since I am already using Gmail and the Google Reader, it made sense to me to to use also it's calendar. But I was still missing a way to manage to-do lists. I remembered that I had once signed up for an account on Remember the Milk , but was not using it, since I forgot I had it ~smile~. I checked it out, but decided that I would not be using several different sites. It was just too complicated to manage.
Yet, I kept reading on and found out that Remember the Milk actually had some new (to me) services that worked together with BOTH Gmail and Google Calendar! I tried it and I think I really like it. You can even just star an email and it will automatically put it in your todo list. It works with the gmail adress book and the lists are automatically updated whether you create them or check them off in either Gmail, Calender or the original Remember the Milk site. Of course, you can make several Calendars to manage different parts of your life. So, if you are already using Firefox (love it!) and Gmail, check it out. I will try using it for a while and put up a post then to see if I still like it, but so far it looks promising.
Edit: There seems to even be a plug-in to use the lists off-line, but I have not tried it yet.
