After laughing seriously, I got to realize your question is quite reasonable! I don't really know if there is an app like this, however you can set up Excel to do this for you or even use a BI feature, such as Tableau Public which is absolutely free. You can then set up various categories but you'll need to invest a while to enter your shopping info for a ...

Priority Oriented TODO list manager I highly recommend emacs orgmode Reasons: You can prioritize your items Recurring tasks open source (part of gnu emacs, included by default in modern releases!) Linux (and other OS's) local files (you can place under version control) I did get emacs running on my Android tablet (but it's not super easy) It's really ...

I am a proud, happy and confident user of AbstractSpoon ToDo-List and recommend it to all my colleagues. Your requirements and how they are fulfilled: simple: maybe it has too many features by default. So make sure you hide everything you don't need popups: turned off by default but configurable in preferences. The information displayed is configurable ...

Its not open source as far as I know (but its less of an issue in this case) but Llama might work pretty well here You can use the maps add on for this I think - but Llama normally dosen't rely on maps Nope, but can work independantly of any maps provider. No one gets your information. The app does not have the INTERNET permission, it can detect WiFi ...

As an app able to do that amongs other things is acceptable: There are several Automation tools available on Android which can be used to achieve this. I'm using Tasker for this kind of stuff – and with this app, would approach your goal like this:1 We set up a profile, which basically joins a condition to a task. Let's take your first example: Profile "I ...

This probably boils down to a matter of taste as there are quite a few software products out there that do more or less what you are looking for. I'd recommend Simplenote, but see further down for other alternatives. Simplenote: Extended formatting features through markdown support. See here for how this is done. Allows you to share your notes with others....

You're going about it the wrong way. Instead of automating a reminder to buy some, just have them shipped to your house on a regular basis. The first thing that comes to mind is Alice.com, but that site is undergoing a reboot. The next alternative would be Amazon Subscribe and Save http://amzn.to/1o01r0X Going beyond garbage bags though, that's were it ...

You can use the Task Scheduler that is included with Windows since Windows 98: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Task_Scheduler : In addition to the graphical user interface for Task Scheduler in Control Panel, Windows provides two command-line tools for managing scheduled task: at.exe (deprecated) and schtasks.exe. However, at.exe cannot access ...

Without any installation you can use on Windows 7 64-bit, the included "Sticky notes tool" or at your discretion the side bar gadget. For example: Hope this helps.

TaskNearby may be a good option for you, because it has reminders that are defined with text, a latitude/longitude chosen on a map and a radius; is open-source; has intelligent battery optimization; uses Google Map for location picker and directions.

There's an app from Google that comes with this functionality: Google Keep - You can create a note, and set an address-based location reminder on it, from the options at the bottom of the note. When the phone is at the set location, a notification manifests, reminding of this note. Notes/reminders can be set from https://keep.google.com/ too. Data is ...

Another option Google Docs and Google Calendar Take notes in Google docs Use Calendar and Tasks for the obvious Sync with iCal Use the offline option to make sure you can access your files even when not connected to the internet

Google calendar already does this. In the calendar settings, look at the 'Notifications' section. Make sure notifications are turned on. Make sure that a non-silent ringtone is selected. Make sure that vibrate is turned on. Also, if Google Calendar is set to use the system default notification ringtone, go into System Settings->Sound and make sure that a ...

If your calendar app doesn't give that options (which makes me wonder, as I never encoutered a device that had no reminder options), you might wish to take a look at some available Calendar-Alarm-Fixes. In the past, I had used Calendar Event Reminder, which lets you chose the calendars it should care for, and even gives more options to the reminders: Not ...

You should set up a Google Alert linked to your account: https://www.google.com/alerts Just type in several strings of text as you expect them to appear on various web sites and tell them to send you an alert to your email and you're ready. You can ask about anything from Movie Titles and new releases to events in the personal life of your favorite movie ...

Whether you’re planning a holiday, sharing a shopping list with a partner or managing multiple work projects, Wunderlist is here to help you tick off all your personal and ...

ONLY Part of the answer: You still need to get the raw data into the database, and transfer the calculated restock date to a calendar. SELECT "Description", DATEDIFF( 'dd', MIN( "Posting Date" ), MAX( "Posting Date" ) ) / COUNT( * ) AS "Days between purchase", SUM( "Amount" ) / COUNT( * ) AS "Average Price", DATEDIFF( 'dd', MIN( "Posting Date" ), MAX( "...

While not a specific software recommendation, your requirements are met by tons of apps called "calendars" having a feature called "reoccuring events". They'd not only let you define a start date and interval, but an end date as well. Example: "Starting on May 26th, 2017 and until July 28th, 2017, weekly at 11:00pm, remind me to have a break from TV" :) ...

What about Wunderlist? It seems to meet all your requirements.

I suggest you checkout Free ToDo List. It's very easy to use, runs locally so you need not worry about privacy issues, and has ability to have various notes and hyperlinks for each task. It supports reminders and recurring tasks. However it does not really show popups - only reminder popups.

I found this post on lifehacker, the post is about an app named FoodKeeper(iTunes), which tells you when your food really expires and sends you reminder, this app uses the information which comes from USDA. this might help you.

The easiest way would be a cron job calling something like notify-send 'Do your homework!'. Try in in a terminal to see if it might fit your needs. If you're running Ubuntu, you could install Scheduled Tasks and have a nice GUI and avoind messing with cron. Have your notification pop up every hour on the hour, once a day, whatever you want. The downside . ....

I like Trello Allows you to create tasks Task can have due dates Also has apps for phones The calendar thing isn't built-in but it seems like there might be ways to make it work: Integration with Calender

When I went to law school in 2005, I was lucky enough that they gave all students a free copy of Microsoft Office, including OneNote, and because I used OneNote from the very beginning, it certainly helped my grades. Besides taking notes, you can mark items as "to do". The "to do" box mark is directly in your notes, so you don't have to go to a separate ...

Getting Things GNOME! (GTG) is a personal tasks and TODO-list items organizer for the GNOME desktop environment inspired by the Getting Things Done (GTD) methodology. Recurring tasks can be set and there is "Send task via email" plugin for GTG.

I was a long time user of EpisodeCalendar (see galacticninja's answer), but I have recently converted over to RS TV Show Tracker. RS TV Show Tracker is a software designed for TV show addicts – by a TV show addict. The software allows you to keep track of all the TV shows you watch, by notifying you when a new episode was aired. Key features of the ...

EpisodeCalendar (web app) can do that. It's free, supports shows for most major US networks, and shows schedules of when a TV show will air. It can email you the day your TV show will air (can also be set to email weekly). It can also be set to move all episode notifications a day forward, for users outside American timezones. Screenshot of my subscribed ...

The good news is there is software that can do this: the CEITON workflow system allows tree-like structure for hierarchy of tasks, supports templates and dynamic due dates, and it's web-based. The bad news is that it's not open-source or particularly cheap. As disclosure, I work for the parent company of the company that makes the software.

As per the suggestion from Franck you could use the schtasks executable from a batch file, maybe called remindme.bat, with all of the parameters pre-filled in: /SC ONLOGON should schedule the task for at log-on. /Z should delete the task once run once /TR c:\Windows\System32\msg.exe * "%*" should put the reminder you supply into the messenger there may be ...
