    Would be cool to see an article with apps that can also do all this for me... (not the kids one though... not just yet)- I try to avoid spreadsheets- clunky and too formal....

      YNAB for budgeting, RTM or Todoist for the list stuff, GCStar for keeping track of stuff in your home, MyFitnessPal for calorie tracking, I think that covers most of it. You're welcome. :D I've used almost all of these (or still do) and personally recommend them as solid apps, though most likely the community can recommend some other great apps as well.
