Pearls of The Internet - Family Planner For The Tech and UnTech Savvy

Hey do you have trouble keeping all your activities clear?

Are the kids schedules taking over your calender?

Do you hate carrying around an appointment book?

If you answered yes to any of these then you need Cozi.

It's free!
With Cozi you can:
Manage your family calendar
Track your to-do and shopping lists
Organize your chores
Stay in touch with each other when you’re on the go.

It's like having your own Personal Family Assistant.

All you need to get started is a Cozi account—it’s quick and easy and no downloads required.

And for all those Tech Savvy Mommies and Daddies, you can access all the information you enter in Cozi from any PC with Internet access or from any mobile phone.

Send quick messages, reminders, and updates to family members with Cozi Messages.

Jot down a moment in Cozi’s version of a family blog, the Cozi Family Journal. It’s streamlined to help busy parents capture family memories.

Enjoy all those digital photos piling up on your PC with the Cozi Collage screen saver download.

It’s a screen saver that’s cool and practical—it has appointment reminders built in.

After writing this post I set up my own family planner. Here is what I found out:

It's so easy and convenient.

You assign a color for each person in your family

You make up a shopping list and can send it to your phone or another family member's phone or email.

You don't need to be savvy, this was super easy!

I love it. Now I just need to get the husband to sync to it and we are set.

BTW..Check out Cozie's tips to get everyone on board.

Tips like:

Cozi messages are a great way for kids to keep in touch with you. Let them know they can check in anytime or even send a quick hi when they’re home from school.

When it comes to lunch, kids can be picky. Have them create lists of their favorite items to make sure they never suffer through the yucky stuff again.

Get involved in your kids’ homework by creating a check list for them. They’ll thank you… eventually.

In your Cozi account settings, add a household member named “Bills” to keep track of what is due and when.

When you’re away from your computer, try this cool way to access your lists: Just call 1-888-808-COZI and follow the prompts. Cozi will read your lists to you or send them to your phone.

It’s show time! Schedule calendar appointments for movie night or family TV time.

Cozi even has it's own blog with awesome ideas on all kinds of stuff.

This is my new favorite Site.
