How many of you carry a planner around? I do too. It helps, but I always find myself wishing it had more or different features.
Especially at busy times. Like at back to school season - adjusting from a relaxed Summer schedule to switching gears daily.
Does your planner preserve and store family memories - like a scrapbook? Does your planner offer a central location for school and medical records? Does it allow you to access information about your possessions - cars, home, etc.? How about caregiver reports or babysitter instructions? Does your planner give you the option of sharing all this info with others - even multiple people at the same time?
AboutOne is a digital filing system and more. I love that you can set it up to go out like a newsletter.
I recently traveled to San Diego to attend BlogHer. My calendar was full and events overlapped each other. I wish I would have known of AboutOne before my trip. I bet AboutOne would have been a big help. Now I know how to get organized for the next trip I take!
Upon returning from San Diego I had one day down time before my Grandma came to visit from Texas. Her visit means a house full at my home for two weeks. I haven't yet gotten a chance to organize the new phone numbers I've stored, or business cards I brought home. I am hoping AboutOne will help me figure out how to declutter.
Now if I could just get AboutOne to come over and clean my house!
