About Pomodoro technique:

I highly recommend "Pomodoro Technique Illustrated" by Noteberg. Great book that made me aware of the why's and how's.

Terry, Remember the Milk is pretty great for managing tasks -- and it's integrated with Google Calendar pretty effectively. I just noticed that there's also an Android app you can use:

As a homemaker and freelance writer/editor, I always have problems doing everything I need to do. And I don't even have kids. There is a myth in this society about the "supermom" who can mult-task like a house on fire. The real problem here is society's expectations of how much one can really get done.

The biggest time-saver for me is practicing Inbox Zero -- a practice developed by Merlin Mann that focuses reclaiming that inbox and delegating emails to actionable immediate tasks or to to-do lists for later attention. It's indescribable how head-clearing it is to check your email and only have a few emails to handle at a time.
