As a working mom (and just a mom in general), I am all about convenience these days. If I could outsource sleep, I would. Wait, scratch that, I love sleep. I would never give that up, but you get the point. While being a millennial mommy has its disadvantages (i.e. judgy social media moms, internet trolls, etc.), it has some incredible advantages. We have an infinite amount of resources right at our fingertips to make our lives a little easier. Where would I be without apps? Seriously. Love all the apps. Here are some that I use regularly that add some convenience to my crazy working mom life.
Coffee is my friend. That is why the Starbucks mobile app is one that I use almost daily. What I love best about the app is mobile ordering, which is pretty much the best thing since sliced bread. With mobile ordering, you can simply place your order and go pick it up. No waiting in lines? Whaaat?! I also love that you can customize your drink however you like it without sounding like a coffee snob and save it as a favorite. You can also save your favorite location. They seriously couldn’t make it any easier.
I am a huge Evernote fan. I use it for both work and home. You are able to store important documents, information, and pictures in one place. I like to keep all of the families school, doctors, and sports info stored in Evernote so I always have access to it when I need it. I love that it backs up the info so it is nice and safe in the cloud. Evernote has saved me many times!
Cozi is a perfect app for busy working moms. Cozi helps coordinate and communicate everyone’s schedules and activities, track grocery lists, manage to-do lists, plan ahead for dinner, and keep the whole family on the same page. Can I get an amen! Try the Cozi Family Organizer today. It’s FREE!
Where would I be without Amazon Family? I try to buy as much as I can from Amazon because it is a working mom’s savior. Running out of diapers? After a few clicks, diapers will be on your door step in two days. Need a gift for a birthday party coming up this weekend? Voila, doorstep! With Amazon Family, you get a 20% discount on diapers subscriptions and other essential baby/kid supplies. I also love this app because you can easily comparison shop. While you are out shopping and find something you are interested in, you simply just take a picture of the barcode and Amazon will let you their price for the item. Easy-peasy. Check out Amazon Family and get 30-Day Free Trial.
Artkive lets you save, store, and share all of your child’s artwork. Using your phone’s camera, you can snap a picture of the artwork, and tag it with your child’s name, age, the artwork’s name, and the date it was created. You can even share the artwork with family and friends. Such a fun, easy, and clutter-free way to store all of those cute art projects.
This app has saved me so much time since I downloaded it. Waze is a community-based traffic and navigation app. You can see where there are accidents, hazards, traffic backups, and even speed-traps! Waze will redirect you while you are driving if traffic becomes bad which is a huge help! I have tested this and several other navigation apps and Waze has been the most accurate and efficient every time. Never be late for pickup again!
Hey, a mom had to do what a mom has to do. Sometimes when I need to get some stuff done around the house or have my kids behave for 10 minutes while I run into the grocery store, YouTube Kids is my go-to. As all moms know, traditional YouTube can lead your sweet innocent child down some weird paths. One minute they are watching Paw Patrol videos and before you know it they are watching some strange demon cat cult. The answer to that is YouTube Kids. The content is geared towards kids and I have found there are fewer annoying ads.
