Track Packages and Spending With Slice

Life just got so much easier for me.  I’m constantly buying things online — especially now that I’m in full on holiday shopping mode.  Sometimes its hard to keep track what I’ve bought and when the deliveries will be made.  I don’t have a doorman and if there is alcohol in the package then an adult has to be home to sign for it.  And that isn’t always possible so either my husband or I end up stalking the UPS or FedEx truck.  But no more!

I’ve discovered Slice.com.  It’s the perfect away to keep on top of all your shopping and save money too. You can link it up with your email so the website and app will find all of your recent purchases and organize them for you.

Slice will tell you when the package is expected to ship, when it actually ships, where it is currently and when it’s supposed to arrive at your door.  There’s even customer service numbers and return policy information attached to each order.

Your history will show all the items that you’ve purchased and categorize them for you so you can track your spending. (This is useful eventho it’s a bit scary to see where all your money actually goes.)  And the coolest feature of all — you will be alerted if an item you bought went on sale and that merchant will issue a price adjustment if you ask.  That alone is worth signing up for Slice.com.

It’s free to sign up on the website and the app is also free.  I’ve been singing it’s praises ever since I found it.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Evernote: An App to Organize Your Life

I basically tell anyone who will listen to me about how amazing Evernote is. It’s an app and website that keeps track of nearly anything you want it to. A friend who is also obsessed with it once called it an “extension of her mind.” I think that’s pretty accurate. Anything you want to keep track of but might forget — should go into Evernote.

Here’s how I’m using it: Read more

List of Steve Jobs’ Best Quotes

If you’re carrying an iPhone, iPad or iPod – your life has never been easier. If you’re a Mac user – you also know what I’m talking about. These pieces of technology are amazing for increasing productivity and efficiency! A man you’ve probably never met has changed your life forever.

Last night as I helped work on a Steve Jobs obit article, I realized that in his 56 years he’s said some very inspirational things.

Here are some of my favorite Steve Jobs quotes:

  • “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.”
  • “Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
  • “Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me.… Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful—that’s what matters to me”
  • “Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life…Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important.”
  • “Stay hungry. Stay foolish.”

Rest in peace Steve Jobs — we’ll carry your memory with us everyday — in our briefcases and in our pockets.  🙂
