This was me.  Mrs. Never-ending-list-of-things-to-do. My house was a mess. I was busy, tired, frantic, always running, yet always feeling like I was forgetting something. I would stay awake at night trying to remember all of the things I had to do the next day. Then, thankfully, I stumbled upon COZI.

What is Cozi?  Cozi is a FREE online organizer made especially for the BUSY family.  In one place you can keep track of appointments, store your lists, coordinate schedules between family members, and even share your happy memories.  The Cozi app contains a calendar, a to do list, a shopping list, and a journal. The BEST part: it syncs with your computer.  Just type it up and it will automatically appear on your phone. No more finger pecking phone keys while squinting at your screen. Total cost: FREE, no coupon required.

  • Save time- You’ll never have to look for a paper or pen again.
  • Save money- No more last minute trips to the store because you forgot something.
  • Save your sanity- No more guilty feelings because you missed an appointment

I color code each family member’s schedule, even the pets. It’s easy to see exactly what everyone is doing at a glance. I save time by setting up reoccurring events like soccer practice with a few simple clicks.  You can even receive reminders sent by text or email. No more missed appointments!

To do List
I can create a to do list for all things I need to get done.  I can even make a chore list for each member of my family and send it directly to their phone or email.

Shopping List
Perfect for my couponing strategies. I make a list for each store I visit frequently.  When I’m on my laptop and see a deal from one of my favorite sites, I simply add it to my store list and it’s ready to go on my phone when I need it. I can cross off items as I shop, and with one simple click I can delete them all at one time. Confession: I haven’t forgotten anything at the store since I started using this app. No more missing out on a good deal!

This is an easy way to record anything you want. Those everyday silly occurrences, the unforgettable happy memories; jot them all down.  It’s similar to a blog but designed with the busy mom in mind.  You can share it through email or on a cozi created web page for family and friends to see. I like to use it to keep track of all those unadvertised deals that I need to find a coupon for.


You can sync several phones or emails to one Cozi account. Everyone can add to the lists and see everything all in the same place.

Thanks to Cozi, I feel like Supermom. I’m calm, cool, and collected. Visit and find the peace that you deserve.

    We’ve been using the cozi app since it was the FAOTD on amazon last year, LOVE IT! except i wish they had a menu planner built in so i can list my menu for the month on there and the whole family wouldnt have to ask what’;s for dinner!

  3. also Cozi can be linked with the Flylady site, so that will be helpful as well

  4. Quick question…. got listerine coupons that state “Limit one coupon per person. No more than 4 coupons for the same product in the same transaction.” I understand the last part, but what about “limit one coupon per person?”

  5. I love my Cozi. Between that and Springpad, I’m super organized!
