You know that thing we have to do? When IS that?

You know how sometimes you are trying to remember an important date--maybe the school's science fair awards, or your DD's next playdate, or a party you are supposed to attend (for which you still haven't bought that special gift)--and you can't for the life of you remember? Ever get one of those calls from the doctor's office, reminding you about that appointment you completely forgot, the one three hours from now?

Admit it--you'd be totally, utterly lost if you misplaced that envelope (you know, the one you carelessly jotted down important notes on when you couldn't find anything else). Or maybe, like 40% of families indicated in a recent survey on Cozi, your entire family schedule is managed on sticky notes.

You know, that's just what we need.

No, not more sticky notes!


If you haven't heard about it, Cozi is the one tool we Moms need to organize all that STUFF, all the appointments and due dates and schedule hassles, and consolidate them, manage them, finally organize our lives.

Remember how we resolved to do that, organize our lives? Well, with Cozi, this New Year's Resolution is a LOT easier than the diet one, believe me.

Cozi, besides being a completely FREE(!) web service, not only helps busy families manage crazy schedules, track shopping and to do lists, organize household chores and stay in communication, all in one easy-to-use solution, it also works with all those other tools you already have and makes them better. Cozi provides you with mobile phone access and a family journal and even syncs with Outlook. And unlike your work calendar, on Cozi your whole family can access the information. Just take a look at this sample family page, over on the left.

They've also added a new feature, "In addition to the ways that Moms can get their shopping lists and calendars already on any mobile phone via text message and using our toll free number, Cozi now has a mobile version especially for the iPhone and Windows Mobile phones. Families can now sign-in and access their Cozi account using their mobile web browsers. They can add and edit shopping lists and view and edit their family calendar using the mobile version of Cozi right from their iPhone. This is a new feature! You can learn more about it here: "

And Cozi understands those New Year's Resolutions, too!

From December 31st, 2008 through February 4th, 2009, if you just sign up and try Cozi, you will also be entered to WIN a two-day Home Organization Makeover with Laura Leist, who is an actual, professional organizer (I could SO use a professional to come in and take charge of my mess!).

In fact, Laura is Da Man when it comes to organizing, as she is the incoming president of NAPO, the National Association of Professional Organizers, which I am so disorganized I didn't even know existed.

Laura will come visit the winner for two days, and she'll makeover either your kitchen or your home office, a service valued at $5000 (told you she was Da Man!).

So...a FREE service, AND a giveaway, AND one of those pesky New Year's Resolutions all sewn up!

What are you waiting for? Visit Cozi NOW, before you forget.

You're all out of sticky notes, anyway.
