This is my new favorite app. Incredibly well made and perfect for someone that is interested in minimalism. In fact I think anyone that isn’t already interested in a minimalist lifestyle can have an excellent place to start by using this app.
Every year I try the 100 items challenge but kept losing track of what I’ve listed, the list itself, or the different categories I should consider (career, camping, etc). So on a whim I checked out multiple apps that aim to help with decluttering. This one is my favorite due to its simplicity.
There is no in-app introduction so below is what I’ve discovered working through it. If you’re uncertain about trying this due to its minimalist listing, I hope this will help.
You are immediately loaded into your “home” with several general categories. The categories preview how many possessions or sub-categories are sorted into them. At the bottom are two options (the third icon just takes you back to your home) to Add or Declutter. Add let’s you create either a category to sort possessions under or add a new possession to the database. Categories are just a matter of a name and icon. Possessions let you enter a photo, title, description and to select the quantity. The quantity is oddly a series of circles, not a numerical field.
The Declutter button prompts you to either favorite or trash an item. The ability to favorite is an odd choice here, but I suspect the intention is to remove an item from favorites. It’s a minor oversight to see it on unfavorited items though. Once you initiate a Declutter you can either mark the item as gone or ask for a reminder in the evening. The reminder displays as a iCalendar event for a SINGLE item, so I’d caution against using that for multiple items. The declutter feature works one possession at a time and it cycles through the photos. It seems there is no way to mark multiple items at once.
I’ll use this app to help me complete my 100 items, but I don’t anticipate using it for the Decluttering feature. It’s far easier to just delete an item. And that’s okay. The strength of this app is inventorying with ease!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
