Could you use a little help staying on top of everything? Then you need a personal information manager (PIM), which can help you manage your schedule and to-do list, keep track of your contacts, and create outlines as you brainstorm. EssentialPIM Free is an excellent one for those who don't want to spend any money.

EssentialPIM Free is exceptionally easy to use, and offers just about everything you want in a PIM. Scheduling recurring events is a breeze. It's easy to prioritize your to-do lists, there's a nifty note taker, and there's even a surprisingly good built-in e-mail client.

The program can also import data from Microsoft Outlook or Outlook Express. It lets you configure its look and feel, and offers very good printing options. There's also a for-pay version, EssentialPIM Pro, which has additional features such as synchronization with mobile devices, Outlook, and Google Calendar. But if you don't need advanced features, the EssentialPIM Free is a great bet.
