This is what I've been searching for

I want to be more organized and less cluttered. Really, I do. Unfortunately, though, I'm much better at planning to be organized than actually being organized. I've committed to a few new routines, however, that have really helped. Lately I've been thinking about creating a household notebook, sort of a command center for our family, but lugging something like that around isn;t practical. And while I love the idea of an online planner, I can't be online always at home. Other than having five different calendars/notebooks (which is pretty much what I have now), what can I do. Enter Cozi.

This calendar is so easy to use, and makes adding events for multiple family members simple AND easy to view (something I never liked about google calendar). Also, it has a list function that will automatically send the ingredients of a recipe to your grocery list. (Again, google doesn't really integrate lists and calendars.) You can even call a toll free number and they will give you your list over the phone should you forget it when you go to the store! Fill in a little box, a message can immediately (it really is immediate--I tried it) go to your hubbie's email or cell phone. But probably my favorite feature is that you can customize it with family photos and journal entries. There are even more fun things about it, but you can check all that out for yourself. AND IT'S ALL FREE! This is everything I wanted in a calendar...and it's all in one place.
