Moms can live a super hectic life trying to juggle all the schedules, meal plans, bills,  extracurricular activities, and work. Some of us live by the old school day-planners and enjoy writing everything down. But, smartphones have become the new planner since they have a calendar to sync all of your appointments and reminders. Sometimes, we just need more than a calendar.

I found out about this app called Cozi and thought I’d share it with you. It’s a free app and website that helps manage the chaos of family life with a shared calendar, shopping lists, to-do lists, and so much more. And it’s all in ONE app. You can keep track of everything from school activities to chores all in one spot. The best part is that the whole family can access it anytime, anywhere, and on any platform. It truly sounds too good to be true. I can already feel the stress load lightening and I haven’t even used it.

Not only can you sync all of your calendars, but you can also use it for things like storing recipes, family journals, meal planning, and sending updates to family. Talk about simplifying. I only have one child living at home and she is 16. I can’t imagine how useful this would be to a mom of 4 or more.

The basic version is free and it still includes some pretty awesome stuff. The gold version costs about $2.50 a month and it kicks it up a notch with things like birthday reminders, calendar search, and shared contacts just to name a few. Anyone with an electronic device can easily access all of the features, whether it’s on your mobile phone or a computer.

Cozi is an Appy Award Winner for Best Family/Parenting app. Other awards include Mom's Choice Award, Webby Award, BMA Gold Winner, PTPA Seal, The National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, and more, according to their website. It’s rated 4.5 out of 5 starts in iTunes and Google Play. So, what the heck, right? That’s what I’m sayin’. I definitely think it’s worth a try.

I’ll let you know how I like it after a few months of using it.
