1. Mvelopes

If you can keep track of your money, you'll have an easier time not spending it. And that's precisely the point Mvelopes makes.

Mvelopes is an online money-management and budgeting system. By separating your money into digital "envelopes," or spending categories, Mvelopes helps you track your expenses and save more money.

You can create multiple spending envelopes and get up-to-date information on your available funds. You can even link it to your bank.

2. HabitRPG

How do you combine games and business? It's easier than you may think, and it's a great way to mix-and-match fun and work. RPG stands for "role-playing game," and the app works like one. It gives you points, and you gain levels as you participate in your good habits.

As any successful business professional will tell you, good habits make for a thriving business. Using this app helps you snap out of those bad habits.

Are you spending too much money on supplies? Put that into the app. Do you check your email too much? Plug it into the HabitRPG app, and you're sure to cure your bad habits.

3. 24me

Organization: It's a scary word a lot of people don't like. It means effort and probably a vast mass of things you need to get done. If your mind and heart race at the thought of organization, you aren't going far in 2018 without some form of help. That's where the 24me app comes into play.

The app consolidates all your notes and events in one place. The app reminds you of important tasks, and even gives you access to one-click organization. You can complete tasks that require multiple steps with a minimal number of clicks. Even the app's design saves you time!
