Today I want to share five apps on my iPhone that have helped me be as productive and organised as possible. They are all free and very simple to use. I hope you find them useful too. Please note, all images are screenshots from my own device. Let’s do this!
#1 – SPENDING
At this point in time, I am no longer working as our baby is due next month. That means serious budgeting! The Spending app allows me to track all of my expenses under specific categories. It not only keeps me accountable for my purchases but it also provides a comprehensive weekly or monthly (depending on your preferences) list of where my money is going against a set budgeted amount. If you rotate your device, you can change the format to a colour-coded pie chart. The biggest appeal of this app is just how easy and user-friendly it is.
#2 – OUT OF MILK
This is my favourite app for grocery shopping. Before heading off to the supermarket, I add all of the items I need to purchase. With a tap of a finger, I tick them off as they land in my basket. There is also an option to scan the barcodes of items and save previous lists to use for another day. The Pantry List allows you to add everything you already have at home, so if you’re questioning whether you’re out of lentils, you can just check your phone and see that you have two cans at home waiting to be used. This is a great way to save money. Plus, there is a section for a ToDo List if that tickles your fancy!
#3 – WUNDERLIST
This app is for list-making lovers, like me! As you can see from the screenshot, I add all of my blog post ideas, monthly classics and things I still need to get before the baby arrives. Like the grocery app, you can tick items off as you go. There is something so satisfying about that. You can also set reminders and alarms if you have impending deadlines. It’s really simple to use which makes it perfect.
#4 – NEXT EPISODE
If you are a big fan of television shows, this app needs to be on your phone. Would you believe I currently have 26 active television shows stored? It’s a problem I know! I use this daily and it’s such a lifesaver. The What’s Next tab shows all of the episodes released that week with the day/time and a brief synopsis on what to expect. Once you have watched it, you can tick it off in the Episodes tab. As you can see, I had quite a busy viewing week, especially on Wednesday!
#5 – THE BUMP
This is purely for pregnant women or those wishing to conceive. I have a few baby apps but this one is by far my favourite. There are so many cool and useful features within. Weekly, your baby will be compared to the size of a fruit or vegetable. You also get to see your bub’s changes in 3D with plenty of added facts. If you wish to track the progress of your growing belly, there is a section to take beautiful bump photographs and store them. Plus, every single day you will be given 3-4 very informative articles to read. I’ve learnt so much from these. I highly recommend this one over all the others.
There you have it! Let me know if you use any of these apps and please add your favourites below. I would love to try them out. Thank you so much for reading.
Peace & Love xoxoxo

You are so organised with your planning! It sounds like the apps work for you, user-friendly and convenient. There is something satisfying being able to tick things off a list, like even a small task can be such an accomplishment. An rightfully so because each little thing rolls into the other and into the bigger picture 🙂 I’m more of a pen and paper kind of list person, and like to make my lists down on post-its. Hope you are well my friend xxxx
Thank you my friend! Apps are definitely the way to go for me although I do like writing physical lists as well. It just depends on what I need. It may sound strange but being organised relaxes me because it paves the way for activities I love that I couldn’t otherwise do if I was always pressed for time and all over the place. Cannot wait to see you soon! Xx
Will definitely have to give Wonder List a go ☺
It’s really handy! 🙂
