IFTTT is one of the must-have tools needed to automate your life.  The title of this website is an acronym meaning: “If This Then That" which explains the fundamental rule the website lives by. It works by connecting your various personal accounts that you want to automate ( anything from evernote, to gmail to instagram ) and then based on "recipes" you create for yourself triggers actions when certain events or things happen.  Examples would be things like: "IF it is going to rain tomorrow, THEN send me an email alert" or "IF I post a picture to Instagram, THEN email my mom." The possibilities are endless. My favorite recipes can be found in the brunchpants tools section of the website.
