ADHD-friendly apps for household management

Even if you're living alone, managing a house as an adult - let alone an ADHD adult - can be tough. To help with this, here are a few apps our clients have told us about that could help you keep up:

MintTo help manage your finances: Mint

This program is free to sign up, and extremely helpful in budgeting and tracking your expenses. You can link accounts, cards, and bills to the program, and they merge everything together for you! Some awesome features: You can create your own easy categories that Mint matches your transactions to. You can also set up alerts for late fees, or to let you know when you've gone over-budget or when a bill is due.


UFYH152px1To help you clean your place: Unfilth your Habitat

Officially called something a little more vulgar, this app was designed to help you clean and organize. Using a fair amount of profanity, the program focuses on motivation and rewards. It also helps break down cleaning tasks into smaller, more manageable chunks. It really helps you start getting things done! The app is paid, so if you want a free taste of this program check out their website here.
Also available for Android here


CoziTo help keep your whole family organized: Cozi

Cozi is a calendar and planning app that works particularly well with busy families. The main feature is a shared family calendar that's colour coded for each person. You can view individual schedules, or the whole family at once. It's a great way to keep up with plans, remember what's coming up, and avoid double booking! You can also create shared shopping lists, set reminders, and more.
Also available for Android here


plantoeatTo help with meal planning: Plan to Eat

Plan to Eat is an addictive meal planning program. It helps you collect your recipes, where you can then drag and drop them into a calendar. From there, it will automatically create a grocery list that you can print out or access on your phone. It does take a bit of initial work to input your favourite recipes, but once that step's done it's pretty easy. There's a small monthly fee to use this program, but you can try it out for free for 30 days to see if it's worth it!


ChormaTo help organize and delegate chores: Chorma
This is an app that helps you organize chores and coordinate who does what with others in your house. You can also earn points by doing chores to redeem rewards. This is a huge help for motivation - either for yourself or for others at home who may be less-than-enthusiastic about chores. The big downside? It's not available for Android users at this point.


These app ideas are intended to give you an idea of what's out there. Some of our clients love them, some of you out there might not. The hope is that you'll try a couple out as mini-experiments, and if they work for you - great! If not, you now have a starting point in knowing what's out there!
