ABOUT THE PRODUCTIVE MOM

  • Hello and Welcome! • I am wife and mom to 2 daughters, ages 8 and 5 • I work a full-time job as a Marketing Manager, and I run a business selling prints and paper goods for the modern family. • I volunteer at our church. • Due to my commitment to the above, I am only able to blog “infrequently” at Tales of a Multi-Tasking Mom and The Productive Mom • When I have some down time, I love crafting, reading, and our family loves traveling.

MY PRODUCTIVITY TOOLKIT

  • (1) COZI Family Calendar
    My husband and I use this to maintain a family calendar. It syncs well to our respective personal calendars and supports color-coding by family member. We tried a few different ideas before finding COZI and have used it ever since.
  • (2) Dropbox
    This wonderful cloud-based application allows me to share photos and files between my Apple and Microsoft products, my day job and business, my work life and family life seamlessly.
  • (3) Catch
    My take-or-access anywhere, always-in-sync notebook/task list. I can access it via the app on my iPhone and iPad, or directly via a web browser. It allows me to capture voice memos, typed notes, photos, create a task list, and create quick reminders.
  • (4) PicFrame
    Between this and PicStitch, both of them are my favourite photo collage apps. See this review for how I use it to keep track of my Project Life photos. http://www.theproductivemom.com/2013/01/productivity-app-using-picframe-to-create-collages.html
  • (5) Getting Things Done Methodology
    I have picked up certain elements in the GTD principles and have experienced good success with it. I digest what I can when I can but what I have been able to so far, has been pivotal in boosting my productivity.
  • (6) We R Memory Keepers Page Protectors
    I have been using their divided page protectors since I discovered them a few years back. I also use their letter-sized page protectors for filing. Love this company.
  • (7) Project Life
    I use Becky Higgin's Project Life products in addition to options from We R Memory Keepers to stay on top of my responsibilities as the historian in my family. Super easy and has some nice designs

THINGS I BLOG ABOUT

  • MY FAMILY
    My husband's from the US, I am from Singapore. Our girls are triracial (maybe quadracial?). My aging and introverted mother-in-law lives with us. On family dynamics alone, I have enough blog posts in me for 12 years.
