In the style of CGP Grey, I decided to create a report of the tools I use today. This list serves both as an insight into how I live my life and as a good place to refer to whenever I’m asked about certain tools. I’m also hoping that in a few years from now, I’ll check back on this list and reflect on the changes to my life and work styles.
This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://amir.rachum.com/blog/2020/05/13/tool-report-2020/

Regarding finances - I don’t have anything special to manage day-to-day finances (e.g., budget etc.) I use an app called Feezback for getting notifications for bank charges and checking my bank statements.

I rarely use Mercurial anymore, I just find its API better than Git’s. PyCharm is still a winner in my book.
Thanks for reading and commenting!
I’d agree with few of your tools [Pixel 3, Github, Sublime Text, Netflix, Play Music]
For finances, I find Personal Capital as 1 stop shop aggregator for all my investments, assets, etc. Not sure if it’s available world-wide.
Thanks for sharing MLO. I haven’t tried before might give it a go. I use a mix of Google Keep, Google Tasks, Todoist and Mac Notes app for organizing my tasks though I haven’t stuck with 1 and keep swapping & changing.
