I love getting organized, and making lists is a favorite hobby of mine and one of the best ways to organize your life, in my opinion.

A few months ago, I started using the Google Keep app to allow me to bring those lists with me wherever I go.

My current lists on Google Keep include a running grocery list I update whenever I notice I'm running low on something. For example, when I ran the dishwasher a couple days ago, I noticed my dish detergent was starting to get low. I grabbed my phone and added it to the list.

One of the best things about the app is you can reorder your list by simply tapping and dragging the item you want moved higher or lower - a perfect touch for those of us who like their grocery lists to run in the order you find the items in the store.

The app is also linked to my laptop, so if I'm scrolling through Pinterest and want to add the ingredients for a recipe to try to my grocery list, it's just a few clicks away.

In addition to prepping for grocery shopping on Google Keep, I also have a running list of shows I need to catch up with on Hulu or HBO, a checklist for my monthly bills and a general to-do list that includes everything from mailing my dad's birthday gift to replacing my Brita filter.

Google Keep has become a catch all for me to organize my life on the go, and I couldn't recommend it more highly.

Five stars out of five.
