Weekend Giveaway: AboutOne

This giveaway has ended. Thanks for entering!

Today I have the privilege of introducing you to a new sponsor here on Simple Homeschool, AboutOne.

Here’s an overview:

“When was the last time you had to search through boxes, piles of paper, or a filing cabinet for something related to your family? Whether it’s your spouse or child’s blood type, details about a recent home repair, or photos from a recent vacation, with AboutOne.com you’ll also have all the information you need, right at your fingertips, to make informed decisions and respond quickly to an emergency.

AboutOne was designed by moms and dads for moms and dads to make managing all that household information fast, fun, and easy.

With just a few clicks your information is stored with bank-level security, and all your posts can then be combined or mixed together in new ways, saving you time on everyday chores 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.”

This service provides one spot, at a very low cost, to manage all your household information. You can even save memories (pictures, texts, and videos) directly from your mobile phone!

Today FIVE Simple Homeschool readers will win a one year membership to AboutOne! Even if you don’t win, you can still take advantage of their completely free 17-day trial to check it out, and receive 20% off a subscription with the code SIMPLEHS.
