I hope this isn't too broad a question, but basically, I find myself constantly trying to keep track of many different things. I'm wondering how other people do this. For example, I have:
- a list of movies I want to see
- recipes (tagged with stuff like: type of food, side/main dish, how long it takes to make, etc.)
- lists of bars & restaurants, tagged with neighborhood, price, type of food, and other misc. labels ("want to try", "good for groups", "my parents would like this", etc.)
- links to online videos I want to watch when I have time
- shopping lists
- general todo lists
- online articles to read (generally longer stories to print)
For the simple lists (e.g. movies) I have been using tadalist.com, which I like a lot for really simple things. But then it gets more complicated with stuff like the recipes and restaurants. I had been using general firefox bookmarks and xmarks to sync them, which are awesome (I can just type "recipe seafood" in the address bar, and everything I tagged with recipe and seafood pop up), but recently due to changes with the proxy server at work, xmarks no longer works there (so since I'd be bookmarking/tagging things both at work and at home, this is a deal-breaker). I haven't found any other non-clunky bookmarking/tagging system, but I am definitely open to options.
Then there are the articles to read - here I've been using instapaper and readitlater. However a lot of these come from RSS feeds so they just stay unread in Google Reader.
If there's a video I want to watch, I often email it to myself. I ignore 90% of the stuff in my inbox (partyly because it's cluttered with stuff like this) and 100% of the stuff that's not in my inbox, so this is useless.
So my general questions are: am I going about things the right way? Should I using all these different sites? Should I be using gmail in someway to store everything? And what can I do about those sites that need ~5-10 tags per bookmark and have to be easily searchable by those tags?
How do you manage stuff like this?
