Need to get organized?

I just found out about this very cool site for families to stay organized! I am seriously impressed by it. Cozi (, is a FREE web service that helps busy families manage crazy schedules, track shopping and to do lists, organize household chores and stay in communication, all in one place. Cozi not only provides a shared family calendar, but also includes customized shopping lists, quick messaging tools, mobile phone access and a family journal.

I went on there and created an account and it is seriously cool! Each person can add to the calendar or if you use outlook, it can sync to your outlook which is super easy to set up. You can everyone can add to the to do list, grocery list and they can all see it and you can send the list to your cell phone! They also now have a mobile version for the iphone and windows mobile. You can add to your lists and calendars from you phone! I love technology! Especially when it is working for me!

Families today are busy--we have so much to keep track of including appointments, play dates, birthday parties, sports and other family activities, not to mention the challenges of coordinating home and work schedules. It can quickly get hectic without a central place to organize, coordinate and keep track of so many important household details. In fact, in a recent survey conducted by Cozi, 40% of the 4,169 households surveyed admitted to using sticky notes to manage their family activities!

Anyway, I thought this was cool and wanted to share!
