Every day I take a look at what I am doing and ask myself, is there a better way to do this? Technology is allowing improvements in our everyday life, it just takes a little time upfront to find and use these improvements effectively and efficiently. One of the more common current technological advances that if used appropriately and consistently are various apps available on smart phones. Please do not confuse time savings discussed below with the time sucking apps also available, such as Angry Birds and other popular games! As I have mentioned in my first blog, if you can find efficiencies in one part of your life, it will leave time for other interests you may have (like finding out how to beat level 1 of Carnival Upheaval in Angry Birds Rio, one of my most time sucking apps, but hey its FUN!)
This blog is a continuation of a blog I wrote earlier in January 2012. I came across a great budgeting and receipt app that I wanted to share. It is an app called iXpenseIt.
