    brightnestThese days, we’re all busy with work, family and friends. There’s so little extra time left,  it’s easy to just human nature that some things just are not remembered. Like changing the batteries in the smoke-alarms or the filters in the HVAC system. You’d do them if you remembered, right?

    brightnest2Now, perhaps you won’t have to worry about remembering. BrightNest is a free app for iPhone and iPads that organizes cleaning and schedules maintenance tasks for you.  After creating an account, or using Facebook, to sign in to the service, you’ll answer some basic questions and then the App is ready to work for you.

    BrightNest will suggest a variety of tasks for you to do, and provide an estimate of how long they’ll take, how hard they’ll be and a guide to how to get them done.  You can then add them to your schedule. If there’s a task not listed in the App, you can add it on the website itself.

    Right now, BrightNest is only available for iOS, or through the web. The website includes a variety of excellent, time-saving ideas, from how to create a pallet garden to making small spaces work.
