The Best App to Keep Your ENTIRE Family Organized.
I have tried organization app after organization app. Including just the reminders and notes on my iPhone to even paying a couple dollars for ones that I thought had it all. Recently I have found exactly what I was looking for! The best thing is that it is FREE!!
The app is Cozi!
It is the perfect all in one family organizer. There are so many great features!
I personally like the all in one app so that I do not have to go to multiple apps for different things. This app not only has a calendar to keep track of events and kid’s obligations but it goes one step further and syncs with any other digital calendar you have. The app also has the ability to give each family member their own color. Of course, it includes the generic calendar features like reminders. Cozi goes one step further and includes weekly emails to family members.
I find this a nice subtle way to remind my husband of things.
Every organization app needs a place to put the to-do list and for my list, Cozi did it right. I like that I can not only make to do list for each family member but different list in general that include notes and reminds. This is great for those odd projects. Check out their website and they have tons of sample list for you or ideas to help you out like a children’s chore list. This is where my hunny do list is! I found it extremely handy for our last vacation. It is great for all the little things you don’t want to forget.
Here is a link to their website where they have tons of resources and list ideas!
Another list feature that this app has is the grocery list. It is very accessible and right next to the to-do list. The feature automatically separates the list categories by grocery and wholesale. This helps keep what I need to buy at the grocery store separate from Sam’s Club. The best part of it being shared is that if my husband runs out of something he can put it on their quick. The user can even organize the grocery list by section in the store! No more back in forth between isles.
I realize that not everyone is as organized or enjoys list as much as I do but this is nice and helps me get out of the store faster.
One neat feature this app includes that I don’t think a lot of other organization apps have is the recipe box. How neat is it to have all of your recipes right there on your phone? Sometimes I make my grocery list at work if I am going that day when I get off. How neat is it that I can see everything I need and I don’t have to check my recipe books at home. It is all on my phone. The app takes it a step further and even lets you add the ingredients to
your recipe straight to your grocery list!
Last but not least the recipe box lets you add meals straight to your calendar! Seriously how convenient is that? Your appointments, lessons, practices, and meals all on a calendar, color coded and ready to go.
One tip is that I love when I can see what is all planned for an evening. If it is a rather labor intensive dinner I can easily switch it to another night we do not have much planned.
Seriously try it out. Just give it a shot for a month and see how you guys like it. I would love to hear some reviews if it worked for you. If you have an app you like better please share!
