Free Apps: is Helping Busy Moms Stay Organized (and $50 Amazon Giveaway)

Are you on the hunt for solutions that will guide you through how to organize your very busy schedule?

I’ve shared the amazing with you guys before, but I am here to share it with you again. Remember them? They have that  awesome free online calendar that helps busy moms like you and me keep our lives in order.

Remember, it is really simple.   You just go in and create an account and begin to log and organize each person in your household and all the activities they have coming up. Anything from doctor appointments and upcoming school meetings, to football practices and weekend birthday parties. Each person on your calendar is color coded and easily identified.

Another awesome feature that I love is that you can import all of your contacts and send event invitations from as well. All of this for free.

How could it get any better?

Well, leave it to the gurus at to do just that. Make it even better.

Share Your To Do List

Planning a baby shower or event? Does this event have a list of to dos that are a mile long? Is someone helping you pull this shower off?

Create your to do list in and share it with your party planning friends.

So, if your mother is helping you throw a baby shower for your sister-in-law, make a list, share it, and you can both mark things off as you go and add things as needed.

Brilliant. Why reinvent the wheel, right?

There is an App for That

Yes, now has an app for your iPhone or your iPad or your Android!
