Tell me more about ThingToBring

So, what is the first question anyone asks you when you invite them to a cookout, tailgate, potluck or most other parties? "What can I bring?" is most likely your answer. Why not create a sign up sheet in one place and let the people invited to your event do all of the work? With ThingToBring, you can create sign up forms for your event online or on your iPhone. Track who is bringing what using our iPhone app or online, we keep everything in sync for you! No more spending all week on the phone coordination who is bringing what. You are welcome :).

What will my Friends see once I add things to the party?

Your friends will get an email with the subject "You Have a ThingToBring to an Event". Pretty clever, right? Thanks.

How does this help the planner of the party?

Log in to ThingToBring.com or pull up your handy-dandy iPhone app throughout the time leading up to the party to monitor who has signed up for what on your event's sign up sheet.

Are there other hidden benefits to ThingToBring?

Glad you asked. How hard is it to get a good count of people coming to a party? Well, human psychology suggests that when people commit to bringing something, they will more than likely show up to the event. You'll get a better RSVP count for your event (unless your friends don't have a conscience and if that's true you may need some new friends. We'll be friends with you. Want to grab lunch next week?).


Also, ThingToBring lets you easily take a look back after the event to find the recipe to that awesome potato salad your friend brought to your last potluck or cookout. Simply bring up the invite link again and claim the recipe for yourself next time!

Do you have scientific proof of that commitment claim?

No, not at all, made it up, but it makes sense to us!

Will this stop my party attendees from all bringing salsa and chips?

ThingToBring is all about party accountability. If your party people ignore your list and all bring a single bag of chips, you have my permission to close the door in their face.

Will this stop my party attendees from all bringing chips and guac?

ThingToBring is all about party accountability. If your party people ignore your list and all bring a single bag of chips, you have my permission to close the door in their face. Or, if you channel your inner zen, can you honestly say you ever have enough guac?
