Helpful apps for a busy mom


mothers day

Let’s be honest, adding the ‘busy’ in front of mom is kind of unnecessary. If you’re a working mom or  a mom who is with the kids all day or something in between, everything about life feels very ‘full-time’! 

If you could divide yourself in half, or quarters even, that would be great! But alas, humanity is still pretty far away from that. So instead, you need to find genius ways of juggling all the balls and getting through everything that’s thrown at you in lightning speed. With these apps you’ve now got your very own personal assistant just a tap away.

Syncing your family schedule can be a nightmare at the best of times. Ballet classes, cricket games, parties and parents evening at school are just a snapshot of the crazy amount of things that happen in any normal week. As a mom, you’re often the one staying on top of it all and making sure that everyone is where they are supposed to be. 

Cozi is the ultimate app for family organisation and makes coordinating everyone’s schedules a total snitch. You can set reminders for important engagements and you’ll always have a birds-eye view of everything going on. There’s a shared to-do list so that everyone can pitch in (think holiday packing list - win!) and a handy shopping list and recipe box so that you can get dinner on the table in no time. Give yourself a high five, you deserve it!

 

Keep it fun

 Keepy

Keepy

There’s nothing better than seeing the pure excitement on your kid’s face when they present you with the artistic masterpiece that they created at school. Your fridge is covered in their colourful escapades and the study desk is piled high with their creative expression and gold star schoolwork. You feel bad but the other day some “accidentally” fell in the bin. Whoops! Enter, Keepy. This is a great way to curate your child’s artwork, schoolwork and memories. Each child has their own timeline which you can easily share with the rest of the family for them to leave voice notes and comments to cheer your children on. Grandparents love this!
