5 Apps to Help Simplify Your Life


5 Apps to Simplify Your Life 

1. Key Ring

We all love rewards cards, because who doesn’t love getting coupons or free stuff! What I don’t like is carrying around all those rewards cards, my wallet has enough in it already. This is where Key Ring can help simplify your life, it holds all your rewards cards for you and more. Key Ring also holds membership cards, library cards, and gift cards! No more digging through your wallet trying to find a card, or losing it when it falls off your key ring. Also, your wallet will definitely be lighter.   

Available on Apple & Android phones.

2. One Receipt

 Y’all this is one amazing app that I’m currently obsessed with. As a new business owner, I’m getting used to saving all my receipts, but I hate saving paper I don’t need! My fiancé is the opposite, I have found receipts for a candy bar he bought 3 years ago, not kidding! This app saves me from having to worry about losing a receipt, and it can also grab receipts sent to your email! 

Available on Apple iPhones.

3. Drop Box

I love Drop Box because many times I am on different computers. Sometimes I either need to continue working on a project or save something I’ve started on from another computer.  I also have a few graphics I like to keep such as my logo, profile image, and social media icons in Drop Box so I can always have them handy if I need them. 

Available on Apple & Android phones.

4. Evernote

 Evernote is sticky notes on steroids, and I love this app when I’m on my computer. I’m always writing little notes everywhere, and most of the time it is easier to type something up real quick on my computer vs paper. Evernote simplifies my life because I can keep this app open instead of creating a word document like I used to do. While I’m still a huge proponent of written to do lists, his app allows you to place pictures & links, unlike a written to do list. I mainly use this app to plan out blog posts and brainstorm ideas for them. 

Available on Apple & Android phones.

5. Grocery IQ

I think everyone can use a grocery app, and this is the best one available in my opinion. While it does take a while to set up initially, it is definitely worth that bit of extra work in the beginning. Grocery IQ allows you to simplify your life and grocery shopping, by building your grocery list and using it multiple times. You can also scan bar codes of products and add it to your list which is easier than searching the database. 

Available on Apple & Android phones.



Do you already use some of these apps? What apps do you use to organize and simplify your life?

    I love Evernote & Dropbox…could NOT live without them!! I haven’t heard of that receipt app, but I’m definitely going to download it because I hate trying to keep up with receipts! Thanks for the great list! 🙂

    I love Evernote & Dropbox! I can’t imagine life without them, haha! The other three are new to me, though, so thanks for sharing!

    I recently started using drop box, did not know they have an app. I have gotten into evernote, and haven’t heard of the others. I will be checking them out and getting more organized. Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    • February 25, 2015 / 4:50 PM

      Yes, they have an app which is great if you need to access your files on your phone! Thanks for reading! Glad you enjoyed it! <3

    Love Evernote and am learning more about it! I like Dropbox too especially because I can’t figure out the ICloud crap for the life of me.

    • February 25, 2015 / 4:50 PM

      haha me either! Which is why I like Dropbox better! Thanks for reading! Glad you enjoyed it! <3

    One Receipt is actually pretty awesome. I started using Scannable by Evernote for receipts.
    I also use the sunrise app to keep me updated on what’s happening for the day!

    • March 5, 2015 / 2:10 PM

      What is the Sunrise app? I’ve searched it, but there are a few different ones. You’re not the first person who’s mentioned it either.

        It’s a calendar app, I have it synchronized with my Exchange and Google Calendar. If you have an iOS device, go to the app store and it’s sunrise calendar, should be the first one. It’s totally worth it, user-friendly, and pretty!

    I LOVE Grocery IQ! And I use Google Drive instead of Dropbox, but it makes life so much easier! Especially since I have multiple computers I blog from.

    • February 25, 2015 / 4:52 PM

      Grocery IQ is great! I used Google Drive a lot as well, but I’m not a fan of the app. Thanks for reading! Glad you enjoyed it! <3

    You are a wonderful human being. I need to check these out! (Dropbox is wonderful. <3 I still need to figure out Evernote!)

    • February 25, 2015 / 4:53 PM

      Awww haha thanks!! Thanks for reading! Glad you enjoyed it! <3

    I want the Key Ring App. I need it. There are cards for everything and I hate carrying them all around. I’m trying it! Thanks for stopping by the Momma Told Me Link Party! We hope you’ll come back and share more!

    This is a great post! I have never heard of most of the apps on the list and am excited to try them. I am only a little bummed the receipt app doesn’t work on android, I will have to do a little research on that.

    • March 5, 2015 / 2:12 PM

      So glad you’ve enjoyed the post! I’m glad you found some new apps!

    I use Drop Box ALL. THE. TIME. My mom recently introduced me to Evernote, and I am really starting to enjoy it as well.
    The One Receipt has me truly interested. I hate keeping little pieces of paper around that I can’t write on. They take up WAY too much room in my file cabinet, and if the cabinet breaks (as it often does), then the sky rains receipts and they end up all over the house.
    Thanks for the tip! I may have just found a life saver!

    • March 5, 2015 / 2:15 PM

      I love drop box, and use it all the time as well! One Receipt is great, I use it almost every day! Glad you enjoyed the post!!

    I use Key Ring and Dropbox, but I haven’t tried the others. I’ll definitely have to check them out. Google Drive and Sheets are two more I’d add to the list. Blogging and running a biz on the go are handy.

    • March 20, 2015 / 12:39 PM

      Google Drive & Sheets are great apps! Definitely helps with blogging & business!

    • March 21, 2015 / 6:54 PM

      Grocery IQ is so helpful, using it makes grocery shopping much quicker!

  15. March 11, 2015 / 8:08 AM

    I want to learn how to use dropbox and evernote. thanks for sharing these apps.

    • March 21, 2015 / 6:55 PM

      Dropbox is super simple, you can either upload the files on the website or drop them in the folder on your computer! And Evernote is just like a notepad, but all online!
