Organize and Manage Your Home (HomeZada Giveaway)

Am I the only one who gets the urge to do some decluttering, organizing, and scheduling when Back-to-School season hits? My newest sponsor, HomeZada, is a really cool online and mobile software program that allows homeowners everywhere to organize and manage their homes. Membership for the standard Essentials is FREE, but HomeZada is graciously giving away a year membership of Premium features to one Serenity Now reader.

Keep reading to learn more about HomeZada, to enter the Giveaway, and to get your own coupon code!

What is HomeZada?
  • An online resource to help homeowners manage all the data about their homes on a safe and secure site--it's one central hub for your home!
  • You can manage home inventory, maintenance calendars (and associated to-dos), as well as the planning and financial aspects of home improvement and decorative projects!

Why am I excited about using these features?
They have a mobile app to make managing your home on the go easier. I'll use any excuse to play with my iPhone! 

Joking aside, we had a huge storm called a microburst blow through last month. It was bad enough that we had to stay in an interior hallway (no basement) while the storm passed, and our shed roof was crushed. I realized after the storm that we have no records of the valuables in our home! So many people use the internet to store their photo files for safekeeping...why not take advantage of a (free) opportunity to keep a careful record of family heirlooms and other valuables?

Keeping track of maintenance and to-dos online (and on my mobile!) seems doable. I can make my own schedule and updates as flexible as I want/need.

Sign up was a complete breeze, and new members get a 30 day free trial of the premium features! There are also lots of easy how-to videos. I loved that the site not only automatically downloaded our property info from Zillow, it also directed me straight to a quick tips page--no wandering around the site, trying to figure out what to do first:

Other cool features?
  • Pinterest! 
HomeZada actually has a very inspiring set of boards on their Pinterest profile. I saw all kinds of neat ideas for home maintenance, and tons on great ways to update and decorate!
  • Organized Budget
Using the bookmarking app, you can save your home decor or maintenance shopping choices and add them to a special budget on the site!

Discount alert! Between now and September 15, 2012, you can get 50% off a Premium membership. Head over to sign up and be sure to use the code serenity to take advantage of the discount.

*HomeZada has a FREE YEAR PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP for one reader!
