Today I’m going to post about my most favorite website in the entire world wide web! It makes my life more simple, saves me tons of times.
What is Cozi:
Cozi is the #1 free online calendar designed especially for busy families. It's a central family organizer the whole family can access from any computer or mobile application. The website allows you to keep track of your family’s schedule in one, easily managed and accessible location. It’s features include a calendar, to-do and shopping lists, messaging service, family journal, and photo screen saver.
Once you create a Cozi account, you can set any or all of these up – and access them not only from any internet-accessible computer, but from your cell phone as well. There are also apps available from IPhone and Android which are, that's right FREE! You can also access your online calendar and shopping lists at m.cozi.com from your BlackBerry or Windows smartphone.
What this allows you to do, is add appointments to your family calendar right from the doctor or dentist office via your mobile phone – and see them from your family PC when you get home. Shopping lists that you create while at home or work, can be sent to your mobile phone or pulled up on your app, so you can check items off from the grocery store. And each family member can share memories or other special moments by jotting down a note in the family’s journal.
There are several features to Cozi, they include:
- Family Calendar
- Customizable Lists
- Reminders and Messages
- Mobile Access
- Family Journal
- Photo Collage Screensaver
- Outlook Sync Ability
In the Family Calendar feature, each member has a different color. This is so nice because you can assign appointments to certain people and recognize the color when you look at the calendar. It’s visual – I’m a visual kinda gal. You can also add every member of your family as a user with Cozi so they can add their own appointments.
My take on Cozi:
I have been using this family management system that allows all of our schedules to appear on one calendar color-coordinated for years. We have many schedules, games, appointments and craziness to manage with our 4-family household. Well, Cozi DOES IT – and it’s all FREE!!!
I print each week on Sunday evening. I put it on my refrigerator for everyone in the family knows what is going on. I sometimes even get extra ambitious and put the menu for each night on calendar. I used this app on my phone each and every day!
What do you use to manage your schedule? Have you tried Cozi before? What are your thoughts? It really is amazing, and even more amazing because it works and it’s FREE!
