I was told about this really great scheduling app from a gal in one of my mommy groups, Cozi. It's a free download to your Android or iPhone (you can upgrade to the pay app, but it's the same app - just run ad free. I don't give a rip about the ads, so I stuck with the free version).
I love it so much I wanted to tell every one that might read my blog about it. It's so much more than a calendar - you can organize to do lists, grocery lists, wish lists... I can add an appointment and have it text me a reminder.
One of my favorite features is the grocery list. I can copy & paste my list from Excel (where I menu plan) and easily drag and drop to rearrange my items (I like to organize my list by how I walk through the store):
Since it's both a web based app and a phone app, my calendar, grocery lists and to do lists are always with me, no matter where I go. If I get a new phone, I don't lose my information like I would now if I just used the calendar that came on my phone.
As I shop, I can just click off the item as it goes in my cart, so I don't have to deal with Ben trying to grab my list and my pen. I just have to hide my phone from him... :)
I love the to do list feature. I wrote up a list of Nick's graduation presents and had the site email it to Nick so he doesn't forget who got him what. When I have the thank you's ready, he'll have the list at his finger tips to write out the cards (ah, who am I kidding - I'll be doing the cards ha ah).
Anyway, I think this is the neatest site and I wanted to share. So there you go. Now I've shared.
Peace out, girl scouts. :)
