Ways a family planner helps you as an organiser of your house and life

9 October 2022 - 4 min read

Out with the old and in with the new - this time-saving tech will have your family life organised in minutes. Gone are the days of wall calendars, hand-written notes that get lost and even redundant phone technology. 

We help get both parents on board with an online family planner to increase productivity, eliminate confusion and make space for a more harmonious family life.

Not to mention, you’ll no longer spend time panicking or waking up in the middle of the night worrying about the seemingly endless and daunting list of tasks we all face as parents!

The Effects of Disorganisation

Disorganisation can lead to clutter and mess in your home and your head. While it might seem like a nuisance more than anything else, it can be a real risk to your physical and emotional health, as well as your family’s health. 

WebMD warns that excess clutter can lead to higher stress levels, with one study showing higher cortisol - the stress hormone - in those with messy homes. It’s not just clutter, though; when those endless to-dos build up and you’re not getting through them, it can be seriously demotivating and could contribute to depression.

Beyond emotional and mental wellbeing, your physical health can be impacted by dust and allergens in the air, or mould resulting from poor air circulation.

Obstacles to Getting Organised

The problem is, you might've tried it all before. The calendars, post-it notes, and other tactics that never really helped you to get organised. So, just why is it so hard to become more organised?

  • It’s a new system. Whether you’ve tried to be organised in the past or this is completely new to you - when something is new, it’s hard to know where to start.

  • It’s overwhelming. If you’ve already built up a hoard of clutter at home, or if you’re juggling what feels like hundreds of tasks, you might feel daunted by the idea of sorting through everything.

  • It takes time out of your already-busy schedule. Most methods of organising your home and your tasks will take a lot of time out of your schedule. When you’re already running from point A to point B, you just don’t have time to spare.

Organise Your Life with Eggy

Using a family planner can quickly help to improve communication and relationships with your partner, and with less chaos, you’ll also be able to enhance your relationships with your children.

Schedule time to declutter bit by bit and create space for quality time with those you love. 

Getting on top of all those tasks and creating a clutter & chaos free household will reduce cortisol and thus stress, which will benefit both parents and kids.

What is Eggy?

The free Eggy smartphone app for Android and iOS is our solution to bring some order to our daily lives. Drowning in life admin for our family, we realised that something had to change.

So, we created Eggy.  Here’s how it helps over 25,000 families around Australia:

  • Streamline schedules and communication: Eggy will reduce tension and eliminate distractions and tiresome phone calls and updates. Instead of repeating the precise time your children finish their after-school activity each day, both parents can simply synchronise schedules through Eggy.

  • Keep track of your appointments: Get organised with your appointments and errands. Whenever you have a new obligation, add it to your Eggy app, share it with your partner and you’ll never double-book again!

  • Get reminders when it matters: Imagine how much less stress you’ll feel when you no longer have to remember every little detail. Eggy can ping you an email reminder or phone notification when you have an appointment or activity coming up.

  • Forget about those routine check-ups: Sometimes, keeping tabs on those less-regular tasks can be even tougher. We’re talking about the six-monthly dental check-ups, and, of course, the seasonal fairs, fetes or dress-up days you have to prepare a costume for. With Eggy, you won’t have to take up space in your mind - it will do all the hard work for you.

How Else Can You Use Eggy?

Eggy isn’t just good for managing your day-to-day tasks and reminding the kids about their appointments or chores. You can also use it for:

  • Meal planning

  • Remembering your exercise or yoga routines

  • Tracking your holiday itinerary

  • Reminding you what to pack for your big trip

  • Preparing shopping or gift lists

  • Alerting you of upcoming birthdays

  • Screenshotting and saving emails, alerts and bills in your personal vault

Without a family planner - all those daily tasks are living rent-free in your mind. Restore this mental space by simply and quickly downloading all of your responsibilities into Eggy and relax in the knowledge that your app is doing all the hard work. 

So, give Eggy a try and see how it can transform your life and your health in no time.
