Cozi Family Organizer
Today I’m going to start off by painting a little picture for you. It’s Thursday, so in Folsom one kid has soccer practice at 4, and another has a game at 7 in Sacramento, CA. Oh, then you know you need to stop at the grocery store while you are in El Dorado Hills, but can’t remember what all you needed to get… does this all sound familiar? So many people run into this problem so we found the perfect solution, Cozi.
We rarely recommend apps to our viewers or readers, but we came across this one that I think can make your life so much simpler. It’s called Cozi Family Organizer. And it’s free. You can download on your laptop, iPad, iPhone, Android or any Windows platform. It helps coordinate and communicate everyone’s schedules and activities, track grocery lists, manage to do lists, plan ahead for dinner, and keep the whole family on the same page, even if they are in different places! One of the most convenient features is the shared calendar that also syncs to Gmail calendars. You can see what everyone is doing and where everyone needs to be, set reminders and send agenda emails so no one misses an appointment. Just think how organized your activities, meetings, school schedules, lessons, practices, and games will seem when they are all in one place. This will help you and your family be stress free, while knowing where everyone is or what to pick up at the store!
Honey, Don’t Forget the Milk
It also has a To Do List that can be shared like a honey-do list, or a chore list for the kids. The second most favorite feature is the Shopping Lists. Your spouse can just email the grocery list with one click if you need to pick up groceries on the way home! This app has many more features, like a messenger, meal planner, recipe keeper, contacts, birthdays, etc… Remember it’s free, so beta test it with your family and see how it works for you. There’s my tip, I hope it helps you keep your sanity and your family more organized.
