Congratulations to @Liam Green for winning his very own Taco plushie this week!
Taco will be making his way to you soon, Liam! In the meantime, let's give away another Taco with another Taco Tuesday Topic!
This week's question: What's the most unique way you've ever used Trello?
At the beginning of remote learning last year, I kept my daughter motivated to do her schoolwork via Trello. She was allowed to "collect" unicorns when she finished her schoolwork. We would carefully search Google images for just the right unicorn to add to the collection. It was slightly wacky but she still talks about Trello!
How about you?
Congrats @Liam Green - send a picture of Taco when it arrives! 😁
Lowing this Taco Tuesday topic...so I use Trello to plan weekly meal prep. There were times where I only made potatoes and chicken so Trello keeps us in check to make a better variety of food :)
In the first column, there are all available Mains, in the second column there are sides.
At the end of the week, we return all cards to Menu and Sides column and select food for the whole week, and then go shopping and prep. It saves a lot of time when planning food.
PS. I know there aren't that many options of food but I don't really like to cook and all meals need to be quick to make 😅
@Nikki Zavadska _Appfire_ this is brilliant! We have a scribbled notebook page on the fridge but this is way better.
I can 💯 recommend this instead of writing things down, it's much faster 🏃♀️
I use it for several things, not sure which one is most "unusual"
But I think I'll go with the geeky one that does actually start to stretch it (and there's more than one board) - planning role-playing games. There are boards:
@Nic Brough -Adaptavist- Wow! I'm impressed, love the ideas of tracking Kickstarters and also RPG's!!!
Love to see Trello can be used to keep kids motivated. I must say it is an unique experience to find Trello usage in our past experiences. I am quite sure we would get many unique experiences which people might never thought that Trello might be a solution to this and we would explore more Trello to figure out it's usage.
Now, coming to some of my unique experiences of using Trello. Here you go:
Happy to hear more unique experiences with Trello.
Hi, @Monique vdB thanks for the interesting topic.
Usually a used Trello for work. But one time I decided to use Trello for home renovation process. I create several columns: one for every room. There was a check list what I need to do or to buy.
The whole process was much easier and I had fun to use Trello for home renovation.
For unique uses, I have a Trello board for packing and unpacking our RV. Gear, clothes, electronics, kitchen utensils, tools...everything is tracked so items are checked off as they are loaded and unchecked when unloaded. Since using this system we haven't forgotten anything at home, which is important since we're on the road for months at a time!
We also have lists for food, so my wife can add things she wants to make sure we have on hand in the RV, from staples to spices to fresh food. Then we can shop and load food and things get checked off. We always have what we want for food and food prep this way.
We're on our route to becoming an RV family, any chance I can take a gander at this beauty? With a toddler and 4 dogs, it's insane. And i'm the one usually having to get track down the forgotten items when we're on the road. Everyone, please cry for me. lol @Ari Adler
Hey, @Irina Divinsky -- I'd be happy to get this to you somehow. Why don't you send your email address to me at email@example.com and I'll figure out a way to get you the list. Cheers! -Ari
I once made a board that was basically a forum for discussing personal finanace topics! A new card was a new post (grouped in lists, that represented different personal finance categories), and if you want to engage in the discussion on a post, you just commented on the card! It kinda worked, and kinda didn't... i still think it has some potential for people who are active Trello users, but if it's people who aren't currently using Trello all the time, it seemed a little hard to get them in the habit of it. But it seemed really unique and worked really well for organizing comments and conversations!
Congrats, @Liam Green can't wait to see pics of your plush!
My favorite boards have been ones to track house improvements, with columns for each room/area similar to @Nataliya Vasyliv which I've found super useful!
I also recently started one to manage content ideas for a women's skate group that a few friends and I manage. It's just getting kicked off, but we'll see how it goes!
@Sharon Tan hope, you had fun with house improvements as well. Sometimes it could be exhausting, but with Trello it's easier
