You don’t need lots of money to get access to software. Take a look at Free Tools and Software for a list of free resources. Trello is one example of free project management software that you might want to try. It’s really easy to use and very visual – if you like making lists this is perfect for you!
A Trello “board” contains lists laid out horizontally on a web page so you get an overall view of your project. Items within the lists (“cards”) can be dragged and dropped onto other lists or reordered within lists.
Individual cards themselves can contain checklists, images, attachments, deadline dates, colored labels, and discussion notes from others who share the board. You can have as many boards as you want—one for “House Stuff,” for example, one for “World Domination,” and so on.
It’s ideal for collaborating and sharing content with others too. You can add comments, attachments, and more directly to Trello cards. This article by Melanie Pinola, “How To Organise Your Entire Life With Trello” gives a good explanation of how you can use Trello for all sorts of things.
As with all software it’s best to try it and see if it works for you, and there are articles online discussing the pros and cons.
