Home Wise is one of the most complete home organizers I’ve ever seen. Everything is available at the click of a button!

The Main interface of the program is called the control center and has buttons linking it to every task the program does. Tasks are assigned to various rooms in the house, e.g. shopping lists are in the kitchen, credit cards and a financial calendar are in the study, children’s chores are in their respective bedrooms and so on.

The are many features to this useful, easy to use program, too many to list here, but one I found good was one that allowed me to enter my recipes and store them for later use. This when combined with the meal planner function made organizing meals (and my shopping list) a lot easier.

One draw back of the shareware version that I found was that the shopping list function only allowed me to enter 5 items per category, but with 12 categories to use there was room for me to enter everything. Also there is a rather large nag screen that appears on startup and must be gotten rid of before using the program.
