“How do you do it?” Is without a doubt the question I get daily when I take my 3 boys and my nephew – 4 boys 5 and under out in public. The answer is Cozi Family Planner for a family calendar and planner and I am going to tell you guys all about it and why you need to be using it too.
Cozi is the leading productivity tool for families with more than 20 million registered users, Cozi is a free app that manages the logistics of everyday life. It keeps track of everything from school schedules and sports activities, to grocery lists, meals and chores—all in one place the whole family can access anytime, anywhere
This crew may be cute but they come with a lot of scheduling and coordinating!
Electronic or Paper Family Calendar and Planner
Are you a paper or electronic family calendar or planner? I used to lug my large Erin Condren planner around everywhere but when we added our third baby to our family last year I knew I needed a different option. I like writing things down and color coding in my paper planners over the years, but I was beginning to forget it and had limited room in my diaper bag to toss it in. I made the switch to Cozi and haven’t ever looked back.
Features I LOVE
We have a running grocery list that we add and subtract from based on who is ordering or shopping. There is no need for a old school paper list that gets lost or ignored at the store.
To do Lists
This mama is FORGETFUL. I list things like call the pediatrician, pay mortgage, grab a birthday gift, etc. I have a seperate to do list for the blog too! I have a home to do list with all of my projects and ideas for the house.
I start shopping for Christmas and birthdays for my kids months in advance. When I see products I love that I think may be worthy of grabbing I begin to store. I already have items ready for Christmas this year. I break my lists down for what my husband and I will buy and ideas for family as well so I dont tell everyone to buy the same item!
There are tons of delicious and easy recipes at your disposal if you are meal planning, shopping, or stuck in a rut with family meals. You can scroll and find ones that your family would like and add to your recipe box! If you have teens or older children, encourage them to go in and add things they see and like too!
It automatically notifies the other family members when a event is added which I love. It takes the extra step out of remembering to tell the other party when you have a work event, friend gathering, or place to be.
If you are struggling to find a planner/scheduler option for you and your family, I highly recommend Cozi Family Organizer. I love being able to be present with the kids and cutting down on the logistics helps me! It has been a lifesaver to me in the last year and best of all it’s FREE!
