"There's no place like home." It's an iconic saying because it's true. It's where you hang your hat, relax, eat and sleep. That's exactly why you've got to work hard to keep it feeling like home.

If you're doing some maintenance, remodeling, or simply getting organized, we've come up with a list of three apps you should check out to help keep your home in great shape.

BrightNest

BrightNest is an app (and accompanying website) that is packed with tips, tricks and step-by-step instructions for crucial home upkeep. From small, efficiency-maximizing projects to important safety tasks, BrightNest has what you need to keep your house in tip-top shape.

All you need to do is download the app and give it details about your home. This includes if you have any children or pets, if you have a garage, basement or attic, and other little things. BrightNest will also ask for your ZIP code so it can use weather information to help personalize maintenance tips for you. Then the app will give you a personalized selection of catered tips, or you can browse through the daily selection, which includes fun projects to try, craft ideas, organization tips, and ways to make you and your home more healthy.

BrightNest also has a schedule you can follow. For example, June 26 is a day to clean out your refrigerator, while July 2 should be the day you start preparing for the garage sale. Or, if you so choose, you can create your own to-do list.
