Using A Shared Calendar and To-Do List

Standard

Welcome to Simply Organized Life, where every day is a new day. My husband (aka the Big Man) says that every minute is a new beginning with me.  I generally have at least three projects going at one time, and another one or two in the planning phase.

Today I am going to talk about how we use Cozi a digital family organizer. I have received no compensation for my thoughts, this is just me sharing what I think about the product.

To help keep us both stay on the same plan we have recently started using the simple digital family organizer, Cozi.  Cozi is easily downloaded to the phone of each family member.

For us the grocery list has proven to be a prefect match for our shopping habits.  In the past we kept a paper list in the kitchen. Often one of us would stop at the grocery store and not have the list.  We would return home without essentials that we needed.  Now, we keep a running list in Cozi. After making the weekly menu, I simply add what we need to Cozi and whoever gets to the grocery store has the list at their fingertips.  We also keep our weekly menu in Cozi, this allows the Big Man to know what is going to be on the table for dinner and what we are going to share for lunch (we try to have lunch together Monday – Friday).

Between running my own family practice and a free health clinic, operating our boarding kennel, coordinating care of my dad, writing a weekly column for the local humane society, helping out with my husbands re-election campaign (he is currently a quorum court justice) and keeping our fourteen old rescue dogs healthy and safe, my to-do list is always a mile long and often my husband has no clue what I have on my plate.

allows me to add task to the to-do-listthat I can delegate to others.  I can create a personal to do list, a Big Man to-do list, or a list of task for our staff to complete.

The calendar is also a valuable addition for our family.  Our grandsons play baseball and football. Their parents have access to our calendar so they can add the boys’ events. This helps us coordinate our weekly activities, so that we can arrange our schedules to include the boys’ events.

In our very busy world, where every day can be a new beginning usingCozi had helped us become more efficient and better connected as a family team.

If you are looking digital organizer, I suggest Cozi. Cozi is truly a simple digital management solution for busy families.  I would love to hear about the tools you use to simplify your life.
