The Assistant That Every Busy Family Needs

Pinterest

Thanks to Picniic for sponsoring this post.

As a busy working mom of two boys I often dream that I have an assistant to help me with my everyday tasks. Since I’m not made of money though, I don’t see that happening any time soon. That’s okay because I’ve discovered Picniic, the app that acts as an assistant that helps families become more organized, productive, and connected than ever before.

Picniic simplifies family life so you can spend more time doing what you love, and less time organizing it. All family members (mom, dad, kids, caregivers, etc.) can easily access Picniic via web, phone, and tablet to keep everyone organized and on the same page. Best of all, sign up is free!

Picniic has many features that families need including:

  • Shared family calendar
  • Grocery list
  • To-dos & lists
  • Premade lists
  • Family news feed
  • Store custom recipes
  • Search online recipes
  • Meal planner
  • Group event planner
  • Family locator
  • Secure family info locker
  • Birthdays & anniversaries
  • Work calendar import
  • Subscribe to your family calendar
  • Sync with TeamSnap sports

The shared calendar is one of my favorite things about the app because it gives me a snapshot of every family member’s daily activity in one screen. This makes it easier to visualize all my family commitments, and to see where there are available openings.

While other apps let you share your calendar, Picniic is unique in that it combines all the key areas of your family life, providing a system for running your home. In reality, most calendars only help with the scheduling aspect of family life, but there are many other critical elements. From planning meals, to centralizing important family information, to knowing where your kids are located at any one moment — Picniic’s goal is to bring all your family activities and data into one place. This allows everyone to stay more connected and in sync as a family unit.

For those that use and love Picniic already or those that start using the app and discover how amazing it is, I’m excited to share about the new Picniic Ambassador program that just launched today! If you share about it with friends and family and get 5 families to sign up using your unique link you can qualify to become a Picniic Ambassador!

Picniic Ambassadors get Picniic Premium free for one year plus a lot of extra perks like being entered into ambassador weekly giftcard giveaways, Picniic swag, the opportunity to provide feedback and input on Picniic product development and exclusive looks at Picniic updates before they go live. The best perk of all though? Money. Picniic Ambassadors receive 20% cash-back for all premium purchases made on an account referred from your personal tracking link. If someone you refer refers another family to Picniic, and they make a purchase, you will receive 5% of this purchase and for every referral from a referral from a referral, you will receive 3% cash back.

    What an awesome app. I have never even heard of this app before. Any app that gets everyone on the same page is a good thing. In our household, we use Outlook, an alarm clock program, and a number of other tools but it usually requires us to share events individually with each other, or through Google calendar, which we have just started using. This sounds much simpler, and more streamlined than what we are using now.

  2. I love this app! I rarely ever find an app that lets you cross things out- which is my favorite thing to do ;)

    I need this SO bad! I never know when I am coming or going! This is the perfect solution!

  4. I need this in my life! In the worst way. I have three kids, two dogs, and a husband who is sometimes like a fourth child. I have to download this.

  5. Picniic looks like a great app that can make life easier. I will have to give it a try.

    I wish I could have an assistant most days. I will have to download the Picniic app to try.

    This app looks awesome! In our household it seems like my boyfriend and I each have a schedule in a different direction. It would be great to have both of us heading in the same direction all of the time.

  8. TColeman says:

    This looks like the perfect way to keep everything together. I am going to have to look into getting this app!

  9. Amy Desrosiers says:

    Now that I have a ton of activities in my day due to buying a home I so need this in my life. Looks like it would help keep things straight!

  10. Jenna Wood says:

    This sounds like a very easy to use application with multiple features my family would really love. I’ll have to check into becoming an ambassador!
