Are you a freelancer, small business owner or an in general clumsy and unorganized person? If you answered yes to any of those then Trello is the answer to all your troubles.

It provides you with boards, lists and tasks to sort your work into and allows you to efficiently work on all of the things as you want. The app is absolutely free to use although it does offer a paid plan for businesses and power users. In my opinion, the free plan should suffice for anyone except big multidepartment corporations which I believe you aren’t yet running.

Canva is a magical design tool designed for individuals and businesses alike. Canva uses simple design elements which are easy to use and understand to provide its user a very straightforward and simple to use UI and allows them to create stunning designs with the help of templates.
