Using Sign Up Genius for your Class party

In my Party Planning Tips post yesterday, I mentioned a site that is new to me (so probably old news at this point... ha!) it's call Sign Up Genius.  While I was checking out the site I came across their blog post that talks about how to use Sign Up Genius as you plan a class party, and it made me laugh out loud because it is spot on! You can read it here.


The idea behind Sign Up Genius is that you log on, create your sign up sheet (it can be for anything - conference time slots, party treats, field trip chaperones, soccer game snacks, carpool, you name it) and then fill in some additional information, then email the link to parents, who can sign up for whatever they like.  Then you can set up automatic reminders that will be sent via email or text. Plus, you'll receive a notification every time someone signs up for something so that you can monitor all of it.


Honestly, why did I not know about this site?! The free membership includes a ton of stuff - 50,000 pre-made themes, options to collect payments (!!!), automatic reminders, ability to sync with Google Calendar, Outlook Calendar, and iCalendar, A Thank You tool, and if these aren't enough features you can upgrade to different paid levels.  I am in love with this site - have I said that yet? I am.

I would love to know if you have ever used Sign Up Genius - how did you use it and what do you think?


(This is not a sponsored post, I just really love this site and thought you should know about it!)
