In the increasingly digital world we live in there’s an app for almost anything.
According to a PewResearch Internet Project, “In 2020… There will be a widespread
belief that the World Wide Web is less important and useful than in the past and
apps are the dominant factor in people’s lives.” Chances are, the last time you
ordered takeout it wasn’t through a website but through an app like Seamless.
I am always looking for apps to make my life easier and more organized. One app I
recently discovered is the 4AnyPlace app, (www.4anyplace.com) a free download for
Apple or Android. I like this app because it lets you track items by manually adding
them, scanning a barcode, or attaching an image or PDF of the item. In this day and
age of severe weather, it’s important to have accurate information on the products
in your home for any insurance claims. If you can’t get the product information or
receipt, it’s hard to make a claim that you owned the product.
Benjamin Franklin one said, “In this world nothing can be said to be certain, except
death and taxes.” The 4AnyPlace app can help organize both estate planning and
taxes by creating detailed asset spreadsheets. If you’re selling your home, you can
record all the warranty information for the home products and give the buyer a
detailed list of appliance information.
Don’t wait for an emergency before you inventory your home. Have your October
organizing project be to download the 4AnyPlace app and get started organizing
your homes prized possessions.
