You know the feeling: between home life, work life, and all the moments between, there are a million things to take care of… but only one you. We know it's hard to get things done and even harder to find the right tools to do it! We asked our Fixer community what tools they use to go from “fret” to “set”. Here are our 5 favorite finds to tackle that home to-do list and melt stress.
If You Like Your To-Do List Tools to Have Personality
Need more personality in your to-do list? Carrot just might be your answer. It’s got a plain interface and will virtually reward you for getting things done.
What we love: Carrot doesn’t suffer slackers. If you don’t complete tasks on time, Carrot will get upset and start to insult you, leading to motivation by shame (but it’s actually hilarious). And if you do your tasks, you get a virtual kitten! Hooray!
If you’re all about that gaming life, Habitica is a free habit-building and productivity app that gamifies the routines in your life and makes them more efficient. With in-game rewards and punishments to motivate you and a strong social network to inspire you, Habitica can help you achieve your goals to become healthy, hard-working, and happy.
What we love: Check off tasks to level up your Avatar and unlock in-game features such as battle armor, mysterious pets, magic skills, and even quests!
If You Need Your To-Do List to Be Simple
If you find other tools too cluttered, TeuxDeux has a very simplistic interface, but don’t let that fool you. It hosts a range of features, including markdown capability, recurring to-do’s, voice-to-text, auto sync, dragging to-do’s to a date of your choosing, and more. Customize the app in the colors you like best.
What we love: TeuxDeux’s beauty lies in its simplicity.
If You’re Looking for a Home Maintenance Tool
Not really sure what needs to get done around the house first? Pick your home needs, and Brightnest will give you tips and tricks for home maintenance. Once you’ve figured out where you could use a little bit of help, well, that leads us to our last tool rec.
Of course, we couldn’t forget this one, could we? If your stress revolves around fixing things at home, like a broken light switch, picture frames you need to switch out, or a deck that needs sealant, we’ve got you covered. Just use our easy booking platform to order a Fixer at a time that works for you, and we’ll help you get your to-do tasks done in no time at all. With the tap of a button, you’ll be amazed at how much more relaxed you feel.
What we love: The real question is, what don’t we love?
