Great New Way to Procrastinate

Great New Way to ProcrastinateSince I tend to be all over the place, I'm always looking for a better way to get organized. Mostly I manage by making lists on yellow pads, crossing things off as I do them, and then when the whole page looks too messy, rewriting the remaining items on a clean page. I always thought there should be a better way of doing essentially the same thing electronically. However, most desktop software -- and more recently, iPhone apps -- just seemed too complex for my needs, with so many bells and whistles that keeping track of them all would be a fulltime job itself.

That's why I was so delighted to find Errands, a sleek little free app for the iPhone. Nice little to-do list manager, simple and intuitive. It's also a great way to procrastinate. Click "Put Off Till Tomorrow" a few times and you really feel you accomplished something and got a lot done. That's my kind of to-do list.
