Orggit is “…instant access to your life’s most important information, all securely stored in one convenient place.”.
The nice people at Orggit were kind enough to give me a free one year membership to their site last week, and I’ve been spending some time there finding my way around. By the way, readers of ADD Moms get a 50% discount for your first year’s membership – wow! The annual price is $49.99, so with your discount, you would pay about $25 for the year.

Now let me tell you what Orggit does, because it’s truly amazing.
Orggit (sort of a riff on organize it) stores every bit of personal information you could imagine and then some.
It stores information around 4 different areas of your life: wallet, medical, accounts and codes, and filing cabinet.
The wallet section of the website allows you to record all of the information on every card in your actual wallet, including your drivers license information, credit cards, membership cards, car insurance and more.
When you click on driver’s license, for instance, you can type in all of the information on your drivers license. Then you can scan your license or take a photo of it and upload the image to Orggit. You can do the same for your credit cards and anything else you carry in your wallet.
One of the really cool things about Orggit for us ADDers is that when you fill out information about each card or document you add, it has a section that lets you record where you keep the actual card or document. Now for things like your drivers license, you know where that it at all times, right? But what about your passport or your social security card? (You shouldn’t be keeping your social security card in your wallet.)
The medical section of the site contains any health information you want to keep track of – immunization records, surgeries, allergy information, and more.
One of the coolest things about the site is that it prompts you to fill out an ICE card (ICE = in case of emergency). You list allergies or other medical conditions, including what action to take, blood type, whether or not you are an organ donor, have special orders regarding life threatening conditions, emergency contact information, medical documentation that might be important during an emergency and more.
When I filled mine out, I put my husband Mark in as the emergency contact person, along with the house phone and his cell phone number. And then, because he’s sometimes unavailable by phone, I was able to add my 3 children and their phone numbers in the notes section.
A few days after I filled this out online, I received an actual card in the mail.
I carry this in my wallet and in case of an emergency, whoever needs to find out how to help me – medical information, emergency contact – can just call an 800 number and find out what they need. It also has instructions to follow if you lose your wallet.
The accounts and codes section of the site stores all of your log in information for any website (or card) you want to remember and the filing cabinet keeps all of the information contained on important papers like wills or power of attorney – really anything you want to put in there.
The beauty of this is that everything is recorded and kept safe for you. No worries about fires or losing something important. And Orggit has a superior level of security built into the site, so you don’t have to worry about your personal information getting into the wrong hands.
