What is Wunderlist you ask?
Wunderlist is a free online task management tool that allows you to keep track of anything and everything from any device. I use it on a daily basis on my desktop, laptop and phone.
You can of course create any lists you want, but here is how I use it.
Day of Week
I have a list for each day of the week. I use this for my day to day to do’s like which workout I’m going to do or things I need to get done that day.
General To Do
This list has things that are not day specific such as “Do Taxes” or “Return Clothing”.
This is where I keep bigger type items that I want. The General To Do List might have something like “Get Picture Framed”, but this list has things like “Get New Laptop”.
I use this list to organize my business leads so I know who I’ve spoken to, what kind of project they want, when we may begin working, etc.
CVD To Do
If I want or need something specific to my business I will put it here. For example buying and installing a new plugin or WordPress Theme.
The household list has specific items to the home such as “Buy New Den Furniture” or “Replace Kitchen Light”.
How many times are you in your car, watching Late Night with Jimmy Fallon or Saturday Night Live and hear a band you like? It happens to me often and so this list is for those situations. I just enter the artist and look them up later when I have time. No forgetting their name.
Grocery list on pen and paper is so 2009. Using Wunderlist make this a breeze. As the days and weeks pass since my last trip to the store I just pop in and out of this list adding things I will need for my next trip. And if you happen to make an unexpected trip all you have to do is open it and get what you need. No forgetting your paper list at home. There is now also a great new app called Zip List. It’s a grocery list and recipe app all in one. Its main use is for this so I’m likely to transition my grocery list usage over to Zip List.
My final list is used to notify me of potential badges that I can still earn on Foursquare. Yes, this is super dorky, but I don’t care. I like my worthless digital trophies and this helps me get new ones by reminding me about the unlock rules for each badge.
So this is my Wunderlist. Do you use Wunderlist? If so, how do you use it?
