Go Shopping with Task2Gather
Do you remember going shopping with a list of paper where all items that you’d like to buy were inscribed by you? It’s alway been tough to do that. Firstly, you take a list of paper, a pen or pencil and then start making up the list. Another important procedure is not to leave the list at home or the worst not to lose it on your way to the shop. It becomes even more tedious when you try at the same time seek for the products you need and cross out with the pencil the stuff you’ve already put in your cart.
Task2Gather installed on your iPhone or Windows Mobile can make shopping a real pleasure. Having created aÂ shopping list only once you won’t need to compile it each time from scratch.
Firstly, create project “Shopping”, then as subtasks you may put dates when you’re going shopping, e.g. November 19th, 2008. Then put either the list of items that you buy regularly, for example, once a week, or divide them on several lists: frozen food,Â dairy products, meets, etc.
While you are at a shop you may open the mobile version of Task2Gather and tick the items you’ve already bought. Moreover, your wife or friend Â who you share this list with can update the list immediately even if they are far away from you using either the desktop, iPhone or Windows Mobile. This way no more calls with misarable voice that your wife has forgotten to put on the list the toilet paper.
Next time you go shopping you may simply “duplicate” the list, all the items in the list will emerge unticked so you may edit the list by adding or deleting the items and head on shopping!
Another great opportunity that Task2Gather suggests is to calculate your expences. In this case you may put in the field “Estimated” and “Spent” not the hours but the amount of money you want to spend or you’ve already spent on the item. Than make a progress report to see the numbers.
To sum it up your life can become much easier, more interesting and creative if you use every day solutions for managing tasks like Task2Gather.
