Summer is almost here and it’s time for everyone to start getting ready for their summer vacations. If you’re lucky, you’re going somewhere fun or exotic. If you’re unlucky – like yours truly – you’re heading up north to New York to see family. Note: if you’re a member of my lovely family, I was talking about other family, not you.

While I love this site – and I am looking into a much overdue redesign – I have been cheating on it. I’ve been spending most of my time over at Interior Design HQ, a site that is combining interior design with technology. Why? Simple. Because they are paying me.
For many of us the holidays mean traveling to see friends and family. Or if you’re really lucky, it means someone gifts you a trip to the Caribbean. Either way, it means you have to pack.
As organized as I am, I still do not have a foolproof packing system. And whenever I have to pack for a trip with my husband and daughter, I’m usually completely stressed out and threatening to never go away again. Why? Because I don’t have a packing app…until now. Read more
Yesterday we discussed how to nicely ask for gifts. Today it’s all about the giving. Whether you have a large family or small – and whether or not you actually like them – odds are you have a few people to buy holiday gifts for.

When I’m grocery shopping and I see another geek with a smart phone or tablet in hand, checking items off their list, I give a little smile to acknowledge our matching geek-ness. I would like to ask them what program they’re using and what they think, but I don’t want to be the crazy-lady geek.
Owning a smart phone doesn’t automatically make you smarter and more organized. But I’d like to think that once you find all the right apps, it does.
And I guarantee that a great note-taking app will miraculously make you more organized. NoteMinder - for your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad – is the first note-taking app that does not require you to type or press any buttons.
