TL;DR: Map out all your thoughts and ideas with a lifetime subscription to this MindMaster Software for $49, a 62% savings as of May 2.

Turning a passing thought into a structured idea is harder than it seems. But mind mapping definitely makes it easier. Devised in the early 1970s by British psychology author Tony Buzan, this effective way of visually shaping your thoughts and “mapping” out your ideas can really elevate your creative process and presentations. And it’s come a long way since the days of disco and bell-bottoms.

You probably used mind mapping once or twice back in elementary school, but as it turns out, it can be pretty useful in your personal and professional life as well. Especially with the MindMaster Software. This full-featured, cross-platform mind mapping tool helps you bring structure to your creative ideas with endless possibilities. It’s versatile, user-friendly, collaborative, and fully customizable.

Whether you need to sort out your erratic thoughts or find a solution to a problem that actually works, MindMaster gives you 12 different map structures, 33 themes, and over 700 clipart options to help you do so. You can choose the best way to express your ideas through styles and colors, add callouts, relationships, summaries, marks, notes, and more, and even transform your mind map into a Microsoft PowerPoint file in a few clicks. 

A lifetime subscription to this visual brainstorming tool is on sale for $49 (regularly $129). 

This may hold for video streaming as well.
