Being organized means so much more than keeping a file folder with some old receipts under your bed. In 2011, your iPhone can be the best tool you have to keep your life in order. You don’t need big file cabinets, California closets, or other expensive niceties. You just need a few good apps. Try these out and see if you don’t feel a little more put-together at the end of the day.

Organizer + ($2.99)

Nothing says “organized” like color-coded to-do lists, which means Organizer + is, at the very least, true to its name. It’s essentially an extension of the standard Calendar app, except you’re given a lot more options to sort your appointments. You can arrange tasks by either their distance from you or the priority they have in your life. The app is also integrated with standard iPhone apps like email, SMS and the phone itself so you can add an app icon next to your reminder to call your best friend and save yourself an extra step in the process.

SWAGG (Free)

SWAGG is the perfect app if your wallet is currently full of way too many gift cards. The app lets you handle important gift cards for over 500 supported merchants, meaning you can leave the plastic at home and keep track of how many cards you have at the same time. SWAGG also offers users additional discounts for the stores it supports, essentially giving you a few coupons just for entering in your gift card info.
