The Best Way to Get #SimplyOrganized with Your Life Using #SortlyApp

If you’re anything like me, you struggle with the concept of organization.  Don’t get me wrong, I try to stay organized, I just fall short every time.  In being as disorganized as I am, I can definitely expect to lose things, forget things, and worse, spend more money on things I already know I have but cannot find.

I promise myself I’d get to organizing my home but never get around to doing it.  Introducing Sortly App, the most versatile and only organizing tool you’ll ever need!

The Best Way to Get #SimplyOrganized with Your Life Using #SortlyApp

The Best Way to Organize Your Life with the Sortly App

I have tried several apps to help me get organized but not one has been able to do everything I want it to do until now.  Sortly has been featured in Forbes, New York Post and Inc. Magazine for its’ easy-to-use abilities in managing, categorizing and search features to help you organize what’s important to you!

I can’t even begin to explain how much I LOVE the Sortly App!  It has made getting organized fun, (yes I said FUN)!  This app made my life so much easier because I’m no longer having to stress about where I lost things and then having to spend extra money to purchase new things I KNOW I already have!

Simple Home Inventory & Locator

Customizable Folders & Sub-Folders: Organize your belongings using folders and sub-folders in the Sortly App.  You can have 5 levels of folders to help categorize your items either by location or by category.


Home (Folder) > Bedroom (Folder) > Closet (Folder)> Jewelry Box (Folder) > Diamond Ring (Item)
Beauty & Make Up (Folder) > Nail Polishes (Folder) > Pink & Reds (Folder) > Cherry on Top by Sinful Colors (Item)

Choose up to 8 photos to visually document your folders and items with the ability to customize those photos with highlights and arrows.

Easy-to-Use Search Feature
  • QR Labels:  the Sortly App is also perfect for keeping an inventory of all the things in your home and where to find them!  With the ability to print out labels with a scannable QR, you can organize your Sortly App folders by category or by location.  Find the things you are looking for with the Search feature or figure out what’s inside a box or area, like a cabinet or drawer, in your home by scanning the QR on the printed label.
  • Barcode Scanner:  the Sortly App also supports looking up items through barcodes, a time-saving feature, that including UPC, ISBN, and EAN barcodes.
  • Lend Tracking:  Keep track of the belongings that you lend out to family or friends and schedule reminders to get them back.


One of the best applications of Sortly App in my home is keeping track of our home improvement project supplies.  My husband and I are slowly renovating our home by doing 2-3 projects each year to stay on our budget.  It is so hard to keep track of what tools and supplies we already have and I find it so infuriating to see multiple boxes of the SAME nails, losing tools and supplies my garage ate somehow and forgetting items at the store we need or thinking we have them and we don’t.  


Use the Sortly App to take inventory of your belongings including Collections like:

  • Mens:  Watches, Sports Memorbilia, Tools, Cologne, and Coin Collections
  • Womens: Jewelry, Shoes, Perfume, Make-Up and Beauty Collections
  • Home:  Fine China, Movie, Gaming, Fine Home Decor Collections and more!

Ladies, need some fashion inspiration?  I had used another app to categorize my wardrobe but with Sortly App, you can do it all in one place!  Find everything you need so get your day going and looking great!  

Sortly App is the perfect way to take inventory of what you own, how much they’re worth and any information for warranties, return dates, SKU numbers, Manufacturer’s Information you want to keep all in one place.  Even set reminders for purchase date returns or warranty expiration.

I also use my Sortly App to categorize my make up and beauty supplies so I know what I already have!  With all the awesome things I get from subscription boxes, I can’t keep track of them all! This is a great way for me to keep track of those samples and even writing a quick review of them in the description.  That way when I’m looking for something new, I’ll know right away if I want to purchase those products or stay away from them!  Have a huge nail polish collection like me?  No problem!

Moving Inventory

The Sortly App also contains a Moving Checklist to help you plan your move with suggestions on what needs to be done from 8 weeks before the move to moving day.  Sortly App is the perfect companion for your move with the ability to create QR labels for boxes and a barcode scanner for easily looking up your items.  Make your move as simple and stress-free as possible with Sortly App!
