How to Remember the Milk (and everything else)

Set an online to-do list in six easy steps

The new year has come and gone and, with it, plenty of resolutions to become a better person. Most of them probably didn’t last any longer than your New Year’s Day hangover. But cheer up: with a little help from the internet, we’re going to turn one resolution into reality. It’s time to organise your life.
