Okay, I have to admit that this is one of my favorite giveaways yet! So happy I get to share with you! But first let me explain to you what happened as I began to write this giveaway post. I was almost done and reloaded the page after linking some words without saving it into Word first. Low and behold, my whole post was gone! Poof! Disappeared! I wanted to cry but I gathered my excitement back up because this is a great giveaway.
Did you know Microsoft launched their latest Microsoft Office software? Not only is it so pretty (the aesthetics rock!) but it makes life so much easier. With programs like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, One Note and the new Sky Drive feature, you’ll be able to make the most out of your work/ life schedule for just $99.00 a year. Try it and buy it here.
Office 365 enables me to work efficiently. As a working mom and blogger, our computer use is fairly high. Using smart, flexible and accessible software is imperative in making the most out of our time. I go from writing a blog post, to creating an entry in my Outlook calendar for an upcoming doctors appointment to finalizing a school project. The new Office 365 software is GOLDEN in our home.
Imagine your life becoming a lot more organized? Sounds good right? Here’s some reasons I use the following programs:
SkyDrive– Say hello to Microsoft’s cloud storage system. You can upload all those important documents and media from your latest trip around the world. Keep them all in one safe place.
OneNote– Although I’ve never used this software, Microsoft kept those people who tend to write notes on paper napkins and sticky notes that end up getting lost in the black hole, a.k. a. my purse. Think of OneNote as the place you can safely store all those great ideas for later use.
Excel– Not going to lie, I LOVE all of Microsoft 365 but my most coveted program is Excel. Ever since I learned how to use this program back in college I’ve been in “spreadsheet” heaven. Excel helps me create top notch charts, tables and even invoices. Excel keeps my life on track – I keep my budgeting charts in there too. 😉
Word – This is the most used program of all. I tend to work in Word a lot. From book reports to blog posts, Word is utilized by my whole family.
PowerPoint– Do you want your pitch to stand out? Create an out-of-this-world presentation that will knock the socks off your prospective client with PowerPoint. I’m not an advanced user just yet besides creating my media kit on it and a few presentations for school, I know that if I get a few more lessons, I’ll be a PowerPoint ninja!
Outlook – Is it me or is your Outlook always open as well? Outlook is the first program I open when I turn my computer on. It’s my window to the world. Communication, calendering and prioritizing takes place in my Outlook. What takes place in yours?
So you’ve got the idea right?
I can’t live without Microsoft 365 – It simplifies my crazy life.
