Congrats to our winners! Sky and Amanda!!
Spring is in the air and if you're like me spring cleaning is on your mind. But does the thought of a garage sale (and all the tagging items and lugging things to the sidewalk) make you want to give up even before you go through your clutter? If so check out the 10 novel ways to get rid of your stuff today that I offer at Cozi.com – and when it comes to Spring Cleaning and getting Youf “Digital Home” organized the new Office 365 Home Premium is providing you six easy ways to do just that!
#1 Organize from anywhere. It's time to organize the plethora of images you have sitting on your desktop. Share large videos, photos and documents through SkyDrive's free cloud storage solution. You can even access these files on your Windows Phone.
#2 Ask everyone to pitch in: Assign family chores for the week with the chore schedule template in Excel 2013. Lists the tasks, assign a name to them, and check them off when finished. You can even save it to the cloud with SkyDrive so that your family can update it in real-time.
#3 Take notes that save to the cloud. The new offerings from OneNote allow you to take your notes anywhere (on your phone, tablet or laptop) – whether you're at an event, gathering with family or friends, or need to meet a deadline in between your kids' busy schedules.
#4 Upload your spring planning notebook into the cloud. By saving your family's sports and activities schedule to SkyDrive, you can access it from any computer using the OneNote Web App. You can also update on-the-go since OneNote is also available on pretty much every mobile device.
#5 Never miss an assignment. Kids can use the schedule template in Excel 2013 to organize and keep track of homework assignments in various classes. Click New Week and Excel will automatically create a new schedule tab ready for input!
#6 Keep your calendars in check. With Outlook, you can color code each of your family members' activities, share it with your spouse, and in general keep the whole family better organized.
