Photography & Presets — Organization Tools
This app will help you find duplicate photos on your computer. A great way to save up space and get your digital photos more organized!
I use Google Drive to hold certain files so I can access it from either my laptop or my desktop monitor. I keep a few photos that are important to me (as well as on a hard drive) and I mostly use Google Drive to organize all my Excel Sheets and Google Docs that are shared with people, such as our budget/tracking expenses sheet, or documents for clients or church members.
I use Asana to create tasks for my clients and keep us on task for their website development.
I also use Asana as my church Relief Society secretary. We keep things organized and make sure we are all on the same page on things.
I use Lightroom to organize my digital photo library. Google Photos is my second recommendation but I love that with Lightroom I can create custom tags and it is very easy for me to find exactly what I’m looking for because I can control exactly how my folders are structured.
I use Trello to organize my client calls and information they send me. I also use it for an editorial calendar, ideas I want to expound on or learn for my business, and a board for all my creative projects I want to do.
I use Evernote for ALL my notes. I use this because I can access it from both my phone and computer, add photos, and create Notebooks (categories). A few of my Evernote notes include lists of:
- Notes from podcasts/webinars/skillshare videos/e-courses
- Quotes I want to use when practicing my calligraphy

Organization Tools — Beautiful Scheduler
The most annoying part of scheduling meetings with people is the back-and-forth emails to figure out a time that works for both people. Calendly is what I use and highly recommend to make scheduling a breeze! You just choose time slots, connect it to your Google/Outlook/iCloud Calendar and the person can schedule a time that works for them and already know works for you! It is completely free (unless you need certain options, I use the free version) and it is very pretty which is a must for me.
Organization Tools — Spring Clean your Inbox
If you feel like you get dozens of emails a day and want to clean out your inbox, this webapp is for you! It is so awesome and makes it super easy to unsubscribe to unwanted/unnecessary/old emails. You just sign in with your email and it will show every subscription you are a part of in alphabetical order, scroll through the list, and just click to unsubscribe to each! I recently signed in and unsubscribed to more than 100 companies that I didn’t care about anymore or didn’t even recognize! It seems to work well and it can greatly decrease the amount of emails you get in your inbox that you don’t care about.
