I recently had the opportunity to try About One and now I want to share that experience with you (as well as give a code for a free year subscription to five lucky readers)!
Everybody who knows me knows hat I like to store and create information online. There are great benefits to it. Two of the benefits I like the most is always having access to the information and never forgetting or losing information. Check out their great YouTube videos.
You can store anything you want on About One! Everything from birthdays and medical records, to the day that your child took their first step. You can even store your home information (upgrades, rental information, tax info). There is a notice on that page saying that the ability to track other possessions is coming soon.
My favorite part is the medical records. A few years ago I had an emergency and we ended up in a horrible hospital. Why? Well, in the state I was in (and the state of my husband who was called home from work by an ambulance) we were unable to think straight enough to tell them who my doctor was, let alone what hospital she worked at. They ended up taking us to a different hospital. Then there are those painful hours of trying to fill out informational forms when what you really want to do is spend time with the person who is actually in the hospital. With About One you have that information at your fingertips.
I must say, the address book is pretty useful as well. It beats my Microsoft Word version! A few of the other things they offer are a caregivers sheet, home maintenance records, capitol gains calculations, volunteer hours, babysitter sheet, education history, and more!
