Moms On the Go: 4 Tools That Will Make Parenting Easier for You

These days, moms are very busy and very stressed. Unfortunately, stress makes life less enjoyable and it brings on a slew of health problems, too. According to WedMD, too much stress can lead to upset stomach, weight loss or gain, heart disease, and depression. As such, it’s important that busy moms find ways to alleviate the stress in their lives. For these moms, these four tools are a good place to start.

1. Make Cleaning Easier

Cleaning the house takes up time, money, and resources. Anything moms can do to make the process easier cuts down on the stress they feel. Your Modern Family offers a few tips. First, moms can clean their kids’ toys easily by tossing them into a mesh bag and putting the bag into the washing machine. Second, by putting cleaning supplies in several places around the house, moms cut down on the time and energy required to lug them back and forth. Finally, using items like peroxide as a cleaner allows moms to buy products that do double duty. This cleaner of cuts also works great on toilets, mirrors, and other glass-like surfaces.

2. Wireless Rechargers

It’s inevitable. Cords get lost. Usually, this happens right when they’re needed to charge a phone or a computer. Yet, moms can save some time by going with wireless or portable charger, like those at TYLT. Stressed moms can buy a charger for each of the family cars and a few for the house. That way, there’s always a charger around when it’s needed. Best yet, no more looking around for lost cords.

3. What’s Around Me?

Mobile apps can be lifesavers for busy moms. Moms-on-the-go will love the AroundMe app. No matter where moms go, they can find restaurants, gas stations, and shopping where they are. They don’t need to wonder if they’ll find the resources they need with this app. Works great for traveling, too.

4. Soccer Mom Organizers

Teamsnap, which is another tool available online, helps busy to keep track of their kids’ team sports activities. It updates information with just a single swipe. Moms can quickly share team photos or send texts to the whole team at once. That alone saves a ton of time!

Being a mom is tough, especially if you’re always running around with your kids in tow and running errands. Hopefully, though, the above tips will help you to get a better handle on your mommy lifestyle.

Yesterday, we put out an appeal for One Can Feed donations, so that we could replenish our Canned Pasta shelf in the IFCS Food Market. Well, our friends David and Ann came to the rescue. They made a monetary donation, so that we could purchase 125 cans at a deep discount. There will be lots of kids and kids-at-heart that have a quick meal. We are 125 meals closer to our goal of providing 130,000 meals of groceries this year. #OneCanFeed
