AboutOne Online Family Organizer {Review}

Getting more organized always seems to be at the top of my resolution list.  I’ve bought binders, desk organizers, accordion files – you name it.  I have good intentions – really good intentions.  Yet no matter how hard I try or how far I seem to come along with my progress, I always seem to end up with a three mile high pile of paperwork on my dining room table or kitchen desk.  In this era of technology, I have no idea why paper still overtakes my life but it does -and even more so as a Mom.   Papers I haven’t gotten around to yet, papers I need to fill out, documents, records – ugh- the word overwhelming just does not cut it.  I really do need to stop and figure out how to get organized and learn how to kick the clutter.

For the past few weeks, I have had the opportunity to try out a neat online organizer called AboutOne.  Created by a Mom, who like myself felt overwhelmed by all of her roles, responsibilities, papers, and documents, AboutOne is the ultimate family organizer; it handles, organizes and stores all of the daily details of home, work and life in general in one convenient location.  Do you know what’s even sweeter?  It’s portable – so you can access it from your smart phone anytime – anywhere using the AboutOne mobile app.  Save yourself the headache of sifting through piles of papers to find receipts, tax documents, medical records and more.  Simply upload all of these important details into your online system.  It takes away the stress in times of emergency when you need access to family medical information or when you go to fill out forms at an office; click onto AboutOne and all of your contact information is accessible at the touch of a button.

At first it takes a little time to enter all of your information into the system.  But once the major information is all in place, it becomes easy to add new information and documents as you go along with daily routines.  AboutOne allows you to create individual pages for each of your family members, vehicles, homes, photos, art work, babysitter and education files.  In addition, this multifaceted organizer has fun features like the ability to create a family newsletter, alerts for birthdays and reminders for other events and appointments.  AboutOne teaches you how to get organized – and stay that way. Think of it as your virtual personal assistant!

Of course when I think of online systems, I am always concerned about privacy and security.  AboutOne uses industry-leading 256 bit SSL encryption for bank-level security, and all data is protected and verified by VeriSign, McAfee, and TRUSTe. It is nice to be able to have piece of mind that all of your personal information is always kept safe and confidential.

Are you ready to conquer the chaos and get your family organized for good?   Right now, you can head over to AboutOne where you can sign up to try the Beta version free of charge. I’ll be curious to see what new features AboutOne will be adding in the future.  One thing’s for sure – you can never be too organized.
