My Rant on Cell Phones and How to Organize Them

How to Feel A Little More Unplugged Without Pulling the Plug / 7thhouseontheleft.com

Happy Thursday, folks! I just wanted to pop in and point you guys over to my new contributor post over at iHeart Organizing. If for some reason you’ve been living under a rock and haven’t stumbled across Jen’s blog before now, get ready because you’re about to spend countless hours scrolling through her awesome handiwork. You have been warned.

For this post, I ended up giving a scaled back version of my 2 cents on cell phone usage. (Seriously, my first draft was twice as long!) I also chatted about tips to simplify your phone and my top three most valuable apps that keep me organized and productive. I’ve been through a lot of “productivity apps”, and these are (in my opinion) the cream of the crop and definitely worth taking for a spin. Totally off the subject, but I just noticed the Old Navy coupon in the photo above is super expired. Boo. 

So, click here to go over to Jen’s blog and check out the post and be sure to weigh in on your favorite go-to apps and phone organizing tips!

    Thank you for the app suggestions! I was wondering if you can tell whether Tick can be used with the cellular data turned off? I’m looking for a list making app, but not one that will use up my limited data. (I don’t have access to wifi at home.) I don’t need the app to send much to other devices and such and I’d strictly use it for creating lists and crossing off things I’ve done. Thanks so much!

    I always enjoy your suggestions on iPhone apps! I’m addicted to dots (and subsequently two dots) because of you, now I’m excited to use swipe – Thanks!

    hi have been following your blog through iheart for and found the above article to be very informative. I love hearing about apps that others use and what works and what doesn’t. I too am a lover of binders and planners and was wondering the image of the planner is that your planner and where is it available as I love spiral bound books ant the monthly planners are just fantastic. would love to combine the two.

    Hi to you both

    I’ve been checking your site everyday – but you’ve not been around in ages. I hope you are only having a little rest and enjoying the summer.

    Fingers crossed that you are back soon – as missing you in England.

    All the best

    Angie :oD

    Hi Ashley, just realized we had not heard from you for a while – hoping you just are on vacation and haven’t changed your blog site?
