    I'm sure there are a lot of other members here on BHW, which run a number of different projects at the same time, not putting all your eggs in one basket and all that.

    I've been trying to find a decent application to manage my projects, where I can list todos for each website etc.

    Currently I'm using bits of paper, but that's just resulting in an unorganized clutter of pieces of paper across my desk.

    Suggestions?

    Using MS Excel is a good way to keep a record of what projects you are doing, organizing time frames of completion, etc. It's all about what works best for you. There have been days where well-organized post-it notes on the wall behind my monitor suit me just fine and other days I really need some sort of list to keep up with what I'm doing. Then again, if you need some sort of program or pseudo-tech way of keeping track of your projects, you might want to make sure you aren't biting off more than you can chew. Some people program their cell phone to set off at certain times of day with alerts/reminderes to help them keep track of what should be done for this project or that project.

    For my own personal projects I just use Google Docs (a spreadsheet, like Winston_Smith notes). For task and project management for teams of people, I like producteev, basecamp, or even still just Google Docs collaboration, but it varies from project to project depending on the needs and scope of the tasks at hand. You don't want to get bogged down with project management when you don't need to be.

    In terms of project management, Trello literally changed everything for me and my business partner personally, we are 10000000x more organized now and best of all its absolutely free :)

    On top of that we just use Dropbox for collaboration and occasionally Google Docs.

    Good question . I've been trying to figure out the same thing too . I've seen a few different ones but nothing has really caught my eye . They either cost to much or are to big of a software . But two I've been looking at is SugerCMS and Zoho .

    Im somewhat obsessed with productivity , tracking. And software. I've probably tried 100 or so different tools. Feel free to ask if you want me to review any of them (at least what I can remember about them) or if you want me to talk about how I keep organized. Right now I use omnifocus and am pretty happy with it.

    I use Google Docs to manage my products and employees (and I use Toggl and RescueTime to track their productivity).

    For clients or business in general, Basecamp Classic does the job amazingly good.

    Just use MS office (word, excel, etc) and put the files in your dropbox
