Trying to organize a classroom party or meals for a new mom?

There's an online tool that can help. Check out http://www.signupgenius.com/index.cfm. The free website lets users create an event and invite others to sign up to bring items, volunteer to help or RSVP.

The easy-to-use site allows users to email the organizer with questions and even sends reminder notices as the event draws near.

When users sign up, they receive an email that allows them to load the details onto their online calendar.

It's a great way for busy parents to keep track of their commitments.
