We all need to organize our thoughts sometimes, and there seems to be no better way to do it than in a visual fashion.
A mind map is a diagram used to represent words, ideas, tasks or other items linked to and arranged radially around a central key word or idea. It is used to generate, visualize, structure and classify ideas, and as an aid in study, organization, problem solving, decision making, and writing.
Mashable has put together 30+ mind mapping tools to help you do just that. And since we know some of you are on a budget, they’ve got free and paid suggestions for you.
