Sarah's Loved Apps, Vol. 1

It’s no secret by now that I am a huge nerd for resources. I guess I recognized a long time ago that I’d never be able to 100% contain all the knowledge or ability I would one day need, so I adapted by being able to search, find, and hoard web apps and other tools to help me get things done.

A lot of these tools that I use and/or love are free or inexpensive, and they are able to be free because people use them, share them, and support them. So here are a few that I’ve been enjoying lately!

Help A Stranger Out

These days, there are a lot of tools that help you keep track of productivity - ensuring that you have all the ability in the world to get as much done as possible. I find myself getting a little bit overwhelmed with the ‘to-do’ lists of the day to day, so when I found another tool that, instead of work, throws simple acts of kindness into a platform that helps you feel productive, I maybe did a little scream.
