Tools & Resources

I have an unhealthy obsession with tools that help me live more efficiently.  Apps, software, products, real-life tools, I crave them all.  On this page, I just want to share my favorites with you.

I try to only recommend the very best, and this page will be updated frequently when I discover new things or find better alternatives to the tools below.

Please note:  This is not a sales page.  The tools below are all things I personally use.  I also consider them to be of value to the type of reader that typically finds my blog useful.
