3 great sites to help you be more productive


Sometimes the best way to be productive is to let go and delegate. This website offers personal-assistant services in Joburg and Cape Town, for those busy individuals who need a hand getting stuff done. Whether your geyser has burst, you require insurance quotes or you just don’t have time to get the groceries, the MLO staff can assist. As they say, ‘We can fax, send, phone, research, find, quote, arrange, meet, collect and deliver – you name it and we’ll organise it.’


Ever wanted to keep all your stuff in one place, and access it from anywhere? With Evernote, and the Internet, you can. Ditch the concertina file of last century and go digital, saving some trees in the process. Create virtual notebooks (for bills, event info or things to do) and add image or text files. You can even download apps for your computer or smartphone that streamline the site for the devices. Your notes will sync; if you add a note on your computer at work, you can access it on your phone later – it couldn’t be simpler!



Who has the time to walk up and down the mall for hours looking for the best deal on that washing machine you’ve been coveting – never mind surfing the Internet into the wee hours to save a couple of Randelas on flights? Price Check is a comparison shopping site that saves you time and money by doing all the hard work for you – not only for any product you can think of, but also for car rental, accommodation and even insurance quotes. Save the URL in your browser because Price Check is your new best friend!
