Weekend Giveaway: AboutOne Subscription

This giveaway has ended.  Thanks for entering!

This weekend’s giveaway is from our sponsor, AboutOne. Are you doing some Spring Cleaning?  Hoping to cut back on the amount of paper clutter in your home? Looking for a one-stop online household information management system that is secure and easy to use?  Then AboutOne may be just what you are searching for!

From AboutOne:

AboutOne is ONE place, accessible anytime, anywhere, from any device, where in just seconds busy moms can store, secure, and manage what matters most with bank-level security: precious memories (text, photos and videos) and household information (health, possessions, and education records, contacts and more). You can access the system from a computer, your cell-phone, or any web-enabled device.

More than a digital filing cabinet, AboutOne does the thinking for you by automatically combining all your entries to save you time on everyday family admin activities like creating family newsletters, scrapbooks, hardcover photo albums, and creating and mailing holiday cards, or completing school forms, college applications, caregiver instructions, and tax returns.

AboutOne has been designed to eliminate piles of paper, multiple documents, spreadsheets, and files on various devices, and the frustration of not being able to find information when you need it. It addresses the fact that people do not want to spend time on record-keeping, yet they want to preserve memories, and they MUST have access to household information.

You can enter information from any computer, by emailing from your cellphone, or by scanning directly into the system. You only enter as much information as you need. There is no need to enter historical information unless you want to. The emphasis is on quick entry and intelligent use of information because no one wants to spend time on data entry.

Sounds good, right?

I’ve been personally using the free trial for the site and have found it to be very user-friendly and simple to use.

  17. I keep checking out that site and it looks great. For military families if it works it would be awesome. I’m a little hesitant to try something new (because I’m not so good at follow through) but a free trial might be just the trick to get me started.

  18. I already signed up for the free passport when Simple Mom had the giveaway, does that count?? I am very intrigued by the site and would love to make it work for me!
