Just this week, however, I reacquainted myself with an online too I hoped would help. Much to my surprise, the Cozi Family Calendar has been updated and so far seems like it will be just what we need to find a little sanity for this mom! The Cozi Family Calendar is a free online calendar, menu planner, to do and shopping list maker. I know, I know, one more thing to look at and think about, however, there are some really useful features and I feel they will truly help me to organize and simplify.
Today I will highlight the calendar feature. The calendar gives each person in your household their own color, so when individual members have something on the calendar, it is color coded, therefore easy to manage each person's schedule. Next, there is a specific color that applies to the family as a unit. So if you are scheduling an event the entire family will be attending, that also is easy to spot. the exciting part is now Cozi is now compatible with many other calendars and has apps for your cell phone and tablet, as well as an outlook toolbar and desktop gadget, so everyone in the family can have access wherever they will use it most.
Here is a snapshot of my calendar. As you can see, our "All" appointments are designated with an orange circle. My appointments are designated with a red circle and the rest of the family has their own colors.
I can also click on an appointment and see the details.
