Why I love Cozi ~
- Family Calendar ~ All my appointments are in one place. Each family member is color-coded, making it easy to see who has what . I can also add the family calendar gadget right to my computer!
- Customizable lists ~ Cozi remembers my grocery list, shopping list, chores and more! I can also send then right to my Husband's cel phone via text message.
- Reminders and Messages ~ I love how I can send a reminder or quick message right from my Cozi family home page to anyone of my online family members. Now that my girls use email, this is a fun way to let them know what is going on. They like the mail & they see it in writing!
