Labor Day weekend is a chance to relax and gear up for the fall season before the big holidays hit, which are usually filled with family and work obligations galore. So whether you are packing for the Hamptons with your partner, hitting the city with your daily deal discounts, or just hanging out at home, check out these apps on your iPhone for a productive weekend without work.

Couples Getaway Journal

Whether you are planning a Labor Day weekend getaway for you and your lover, or a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon trip oversees, couples will love planning their adventures with the Couples Getaway Journal app ($1.99). You can appoint one partner to use the app to create your detailed trip budget including food, lodging and activities, and the other to create your trip photo album and journal entries, all using this handy travel app. I love that you can use it to plan your wardrobe packing list because traveling for me is all about the fashion!

CityPockets

I’ve lost more money than I’ve saved with these so-called deal sites. That’s mainly because I forget about the deals before they expire, i.e. one pizza, two movie tickets and 10 yoga sessions down the toilet. So since you aren’t laboring this festive American weekend, download the free CityPockets app and organize your deals from various sites into one app for easy access. You can also use the app to redeem deals, no printing required!

Jonathan Adler

Labor Day signals back to school and the coming winter, so why not use this downtime to nurture your nest and do a little redecorating? The free Jonathan Adler app is filled with real-life inspiration for sprucing up your décor before you spend the winter in hibernation at home. This app is full of daily fun with rotating quotes from the quirky designer and featured products from his line every day.

Wardrobe Journal

If you weren’t lucky enough to snag an invite to someone’s country house for the holiday weekend and you are sick of redecorating your own humble abode, why not tackle your closet and prepare for the changing season with the Wardrobe Journal app ($0.99)? Have you ever arrived at a big meeting with your major client only to realize you have on the exact same outfit that you wore to the meeting last month? Avoid a tragic fashion faux pas by keeping track of said fashion occasions with this smart app. Use the holiday weekend to load up on your go-to outfits and take a fashionable step into fall.

Sadhana Touch

Wherever you are for Labor Day weekend, take some time to stop and smell the roses. If you are feeling overly frantic and unable to relax, the Sadhana Touch app ($1.99) might just be what you need to unwind and let all that work stress float away — at least for one weekend! This app has everything you need to create a meaningful mediation practice that will have you repeating your relaxing weekend mantra all the way back to your office cube.
