51 IHeart: AboutOne & a Giveaway!!

Being organized isn't always about pretty bins, although, that's a definite perk!  In fact, I have stressed right here on this blog many many times, that organizing is about simplifying and streamlining your life and home.  

Today's product/giveaway does JUST that in an incredible way.  In fact, we have talked about going paperless in the past as one of the best ways to reduce paper piles and clutter, now's your chance to hop on that bandwagon!

AboutOne.com is a secure online service that makes it easier for moms to manage family life by providing one convenient location to quickly and easily store and manage family memories {text, photos and videos} and household information {health, possession, and education records, contacts and more}. It provides the ability to access this data no matter where you are, at home or away, with a computer, cell phone, or other device with internet access!

AboutOne is much more than a digital filing cabinet you can carry in your pocket. It also makes your information useful on a daily basis with time saving features like automatically created family newsletters {including text, video, and artwork} and caregiver instructions, paper greeting cards that mail themselves, and more!

AboutOne is fast, fun, and easy to use, with time-saving features like APIs and wizards, and the ability to quickly enter information with your phone, a scanner, or computer. There’s no need to enter history. You just open your account and, in seconds, enter info as life happens – document your baby’s first steps, scan a household receipt, record an idea in your gift log. Plus, AboutOne serves as your organizational GPS, guiding you along the path to organization with advice and suggestions. With AboutOne, you’ll also have the information you need, right at your fingertips, to make informed decisions and respond quickly to a medical or other emergency!
Life is busy when you’re a Mom!

Between doctor appointments, medical forms, school records, and adorable homemade cards that are way too cute to toss, the task of storing important paperwork and preserving and sharing family memories is no easy feat. Throw in thousands of photos and stuff piles up fast!

AboutOne’s digital filing cabinet takes care of all that paperwork. Think of it as your new Mother’s Helper!

Make informed decisions with a complete picture of each family member’s health:

  • Keep track of your family's health records especially information on conditions, medications, doctors, immunizations, appointments, insurance, emergency contacts, and more
  • AboutOne automatically prepare health summaries for each family member for trips to the doctor, and caregiver information sheets to give the babysitter on date night!
  • Get alerts and reminders about upcoming appointments and prescription expirations

Preserve your family memories:

  • Snap a photo, shoot a video, or scan your child’s artwork and email it to AboutOne.
  • AboutOne automatically creates multimedia family newsletters and beautiful hard copy photo memory books from the digital scrapbook.

Create a central location for your important school records:

  • Document your family's education records, awards, grades, class schedules, organized by grade level and school.
  • Capture high school details including GPA, transcripts, standardized test scores, and volunteer hours, and they’re all neatly summarized for your college applications at the touch of a button.

The Address Book helps keep track of friends, family, household contractors, utility companies and other personal contacts:

  • Don't have time to buy a birthday card? Send paper cards and invitations that mail themselves right through our system!
  • Can't remember what you bought Grandmom last year for her birthday? No problem, we have a gift log for recording gift ideas, gifts given and received, plus birthday and anniversary reminders

Store home and vehicle details to preserve the value of your possessions:

  • Automatic maintenance reminders help keep your home in tip top shape
  • Appliance purchase/repair dates, model number, owner’s manual and warranty information
  • Record vehicle registration/maintenance and home improvement/maintenance, including what’s been done, by whom, and the cost.

You can snag all the the details on their website!  It seriously seems as though there is nothing this magical life assistant can't do.  And I totally LOVE LOVE LOVE that it's all digital.  Meaning: PAPER FREE!  And can be accessed from anywhere!  I can't even tally up how many "WINS" this program provides!!

I know that the AboutOne website is exciting enough, but just when you thought it couldn't get better, there is MORE!!  AboutOne is handing off a $100 American Express Gift Card plus a FREE Subscription to AboutOne.com, to one lucky reader!!!!  Everyone plug your ears, there is going to be a lot of exciting screaming going on!  Not only that, but FOUR other lucky readers will also receive a FREE Subscription to AboutOne.com as well!!
