Family Management Tools – Using Cozi

If you are anything like me, you’ve got lists all over the place. Lists for groceries, lists of activities on a calendar, lists of memories that you may one day (but probably will never) scrapbook… And they probably are covering your fridge.

It’s hard keeping track of everything that goes on around a home – field trips, meetings, sports practices.

Cozi is a site where you can manage your family’s calendar, make lists (groceries, to do) and even post photos and journal.

And it is super simple to figure out. Better yet – it’s free!

Your home page will look something like this (but not with that super cute baby – he’s mine):

You will immediately have access to your journal, calendar and shopping lists.

When you choose your calendar and set it up, you can assign a different color for each family member. Then when you view your calendar, choose to view all members or individuals:

Access your lists – create new ones, print them, even search for recipes (!):

And be sure to use the journal to jot down things you don’t want to forget, such as cute babies in a vest and tie:

See – simple. You are sure to find something about Cozi that will help you manage your family better, and allow you to see your fridge again.

  3. Thanks for stopping by, Robbie! I look forward to seeing what Cozi is able to do in the future.

  4. I’ve been using Cozi for a few months, but only the calendar feature. I’m going to try the lists and journal applications now. I had no idea you could look up recipes. Thanks for the info!
