Organizing calendar events, grocery lists, class schedules and work to-dos can be overwhelming. Luckily in 2021, we have some helpful technology to keep on top of it. The following are some of our favorite virtual tools to help keep you and your family organized in the new year.

Cozi Family Organizer

Cozi is pretty much the ultimate family organizer. This app works as a shared calendar letting you keep your appointments, activities, school events, and more all in one place. You’ll find it simple to share not only your family members’ schedules, but things like grocery lists and meal prep plans to keep everyone on the same page.

Our Family Wizard

This co-parenting app is a blessing for parents who need a streamlined and easy way to communicate with each other in regards to their kids. Input your schedule, expenses, reimbursement requests to share between parties and document all communication. Our Family Wizard helps avoid conflict and smooth out bumps in the co-parenting road so you can focus on what really matters — your children.

If you have a big family, you know what a tremendous help it is when everyone pitches in around the house to get things done. However, assigning chores and managing allowances can be a frustrating part of household management. BusyKid is an app that helps families simplify the process. You can create a list of weekly chores that kids can check off once completed. BusyKid is also a great beginner saving and budgeting tool, since parents can assign an allowance that can be deposited directly into their child’s bank account or put onto a gift card.


There’s nothing quite like crossing everything off of your to-do list. Evernote is a popular list-making and note-taking app that lets you easily share and organize content and reminders with your friends and family. Evernote is especially beloved for its visual and audio aspect — they make it simple to add images and record and share audio notes.

Apple Reminders

Sometimes all you need is a simple reminder. Luckily there’s a high chance you already have this built-in virtual tool at your fingertips. Apple Reminders is a task management tool that is developed for Apple Inc.’s iOS, macOS, and watchOS products. You can even share your reminders with family members. Create reminders and set notifications to help “future you” stay organized.

Simple Habit

After running through to-do lists, working from home, helping your kids with virtual learning, assigning chores and setting reminders, we could all use a helpful nudge to relax and breathe. Simple Habit is the answer. This app provides quick and helpful on-the-go guided meditations. Just choose your situation (from waiting in line at the grocery store to trying to fall asleep) and quiet your mind for a quick session.
