@mhenders No, didn't win the ticket lottery. (And right now it's probably best for me to stay firmly planted in front of Xcode, anyway. :-)

@mhenders Also, you can only reorder in projects, not contexts, so I like my projects to be of like items, not relying on contexts to group.

@mhenders Right, I don't mix like that. (I did for a couple years but found that it was more work to micromanage the context assignments.)

@mhenders I have several projects of those, in rough priority order. Sequential so only one item is available, and sometimes even deferred.

@mhenders Yes, the best/worst part of OF is that it's so flexible. I use a not-really-GTD system that works for me. It's still evolving.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Several ways: different contexts, different project types, defer/due dates, flags. Takes a while to come up with a system.

@mhenders Yes. There are some annoyances, but I like it much better than I expected to.

@mhenders It doesn't seem to be very time consuming. If I'm out, I enter from the receipt (or OmniFocus note if no receipt) when I get home.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Yes (like an animal). As they happen. Otherwise it's just skimming, not reconciling, and no way to see what's outstanding.

@mhenders I don't think I have many vendors that map cleanly. For instance, I might buy toilet paper at the grocery store or milk at CVS.

@mhenders And if you aren't entering the information yourself, it's just "reconciling" against the institution's own data.

@mhenders Automatic download has never made sense to me. It will never be smart enough to categorize everything properly.

@mhenders In MoneyWell I have separate buckets for Household Supplies and Clothing.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Those apps don't let you assign a category/bucket to each transaction?
