About One: Get yourself Organized! Plus Giveaway

1:40 PM Posted by Courtney B



Do you have trouble learning how to get organized? I know I do! So much has been going on in my life lately, that's it's hard to keep track. One of my biggest obstacles in getting organized is filing all my paperwork, such as medical bills and other bills such as car and house payment work. As most of you know, I'm also pregnant AND going through Invisalign treatments, so as you can imagine I'm going to the doctor several times each month. I have the hardest time remembering appointments, dates, or even get togethers with friends. I've never been the type of person to walk around with a planner, although I have attempted to use one, but it always gets shoved in the back of the closet. Let's face it, I'm not an organized type of person, especially with paperwork of ANY kind.


So NOW I'm attempting a new way to get organized, a new online digital filing system and more, About One; and it's working really well so far. I'm really happy with my progress.

"AboutOne is an online productivity tool for home managers that comes with a digital filing cabinet for all the information life throws at you. Between health and school records and adorable artwork that’s way too cute to toss, storing important paperwork and preserving family memories is no easy feat. Throw in thousands of photos and stuff piles up fast! AboutOne takes care of all that, and is a great mother’s helper"




My boyfriend is the worst culprit when it comes to these things. Papers everywhere! I really need to get him to get an account with About One as well. I know it can be so hard to keep track of paperwork, (receipts, bills, credit card statements) and unless you have a filing cabinet, you just have to organize organize organize! I've been trying to teach him how to declutter all his stuff, because who likes clutter?



Do you carry an address book? Your health records? Your pet health records?


About One makes it easy to track things such as doctors names, numbers or your insurance information. If you're anything like me, you're constantly misplacing insurance cards or important medical records. We pull them out when we're on the phone, or at a doctor's office and sometimes you just throw it in your purse or throw it on a table somewhere in your house. Well instead of struggling to find this information over and over, with About One you simply put all your numbers on one easy website, and you're good to go! Imagine all your paperwork, appointments and phone numbers in one place.


I told you earlier I have trouble with remembering doctor appointments. Just this month, I have an OB visit, 2 Ortho visits, Bella is getting her hair done, her immunizations and I have a dentist appointment to get my teeth cleaned. I also have a baby shower to go to and a couple birthday parties. Before now, I was writing these on a generic calender that you hang on your wall, (very old school) Or even putting them on sticky notes. Well now, I simply put those appoinment dates into the About One website, and then I'm alerted before the date, so I remember! This works well with birthdays as well, which I'm always forgetting!



I'm excited for About One to put out their Iphone app at the end of the Summer, because although I have no I Phone, I DO have an Ipad, and I'm hoping I can use About One on that platform as well.



These are just a few of the great ways to get organized online. Face it, it's 2011 and these days you can do everything and anything over the computer! It's fun, easy and doesn't require a ton of clutter. About One has so many other features, but it would take me days to write about each one. Set up babysitter appointments, keep track of your family and family history, your education, your possessions, vehicle maintenance, Volunteer hours, and more.



Right now you can purchase an About One membership or $5 a month or $30 a year. That's next to nothing! Visit their website to take an online tour, and get to know their program.
