Life was simple before the era of smartphones, right? There was more one on one communication, our children had outdoor activities to keep them engaged and our partners gave us more attention.
Today, we might not be able to enjoy those simple days today but we have access to better things and better experiences. One of them is the liberty to watch our favorite TV series. Every day, I come home from work to binge-watch shows I like on the Hallmark channel. Currently, I am watching The Act. It’s fair to say entertainment is more in our control now. Fortunately, life can be too.
We are lucky to have apps that help us keep track of our health, stay organized, pay our bills on time and so much more. These are 7 must-have apps I use to make my life easy:

#5: Google Task
Google task app is a lifesaver for those who like creating a to-do list. Honestly, things can get overwhelming in the real world. If you don’t write it down, you will forget your next coffee date, the birthday of an acquaintance, and maybe even when to pick your laundry from the dry cleaner’s shop.
Stop keeping a mental to-do list and create an actual one. It’s like a planner that lets you keep track of everyday tasks, meetings and even add random notes. Google Task lets you label everything.
Who doesn’t like having coupons? It lets you enjoy a good life while staying on a budget. Whether you want to spend a day at the spa, go on a weekend getaway with your boyfriend, watch movies or have dinner at a 5-star hotel, Groupon app will give you access to a whole library of coupons and online deals.
Groupon is an online marketplace to find deals on travel, hotels and a number of other goods and services by different merchants. You get to enjoy the good stuff without overspending.
Do you always forget to pay your bill on time? I hear you, we all do sometimes. The problem is, if you don’t make timely payments, the bill keeps on piling up because of the Interest rate. Whether it is your Internet/cable bill, utilities or rent, Venmo keeps you on top of the game. It lets you transfer your funds where they should go i.e. toward paying your bills. It makes your financial life so much easier.
