Parenting a child certainly throws any ideas about routine out of the window.
For example, the morning actress Penny McNamee came into chat on the I Don’t Know How She Does It podcast, her two year old son Jack had dropped a little stone from her in laws’ balcony which hit their glass pool fence, causing it to completely shatter.
But the Home and Away star has a little secret that keeps her life as a working parent together – a handy app called Wunderlist.
“I’m so not the spokesperson for it but I should be. My older sister put me onto it and it’s an app of lists,” she told the podcast.
Listen: The app that changed Penny McNamee’s life. Post continues after audio.
“I feel like working mothers just make lists all day long and this one, you can invite other people to join your list, so we’ve got a grocery list and my husband, our nanny and I are on it so any time something runs out, it goes straight on the app and means on Sunday when we go to do the groceries, everything is there and we don’t have to figure out what we don’t have.
“Or if you happen to be at the shops, you haven’t forgotten the grocery list, it’s all there in your phone!”
Free to create an account, you can set reminders or deadlines for your lists and share them with others.
But it has plenty of other uses too.
