Website of the Day: Backpack It


Up until the last couple of months I thought people who relied on electronic organizers were crazy, but I've recently become addicted to using my camera phone to make lists and recording my expenses on my phone with Dime Tracker and understand how great it is to keep your lists online. If you're like me and trying to get organized Backpack It is a great resource. The site allows you to keep your schedule, to-dos, notes and ideas online in one place.

Apparently people use the site for all kinds of things — from planning weddings, listing items for sale, storing canned e-mails, organizing rebates to planning trips. The calendar feature allows you to control multiple calendar in one place (always a pain for those of us juggling work and personal calendars) and even get e-mail and SMS reminders 30-minutes before events. The service is free, but you can upgrade for more features.
