Both stay-at-home moms and working moms put in a lot of mileage during the day. Their children come first, and between driving them to soccer or ballet, potty-training, picking up the dry cleaning, going to the market, cleaning the house, cooking the family meals, or ordering the family meals, it’s not always easy to organize their time. Moms on the go need a little help to organize, and cut some time off their ever-changing routines. These phone and mobile apps are perfect apps for moms on the go so be sure to check them out.
Great Apps for Moms on the Go
To Market, To Market
Cut down your time at the grocery store with the Grocery Gadget app. You sign up at GroceryGadgets.com and create a basic list of the foods and brands you usually buy. As you shop you can access the list on your mobile phone, and tick off the items when you put them into your grocery cart. It keeps a tab of what you’re spending. The app remembers the order in which you ticked off the groceries, so the next time you go to the market it’s all in the order you usually shop. When you get those groceries home, you can find easy recipes from AllRecipes.com. It’s a free app that lists thousands of recipes with an easy search. Just follow the bread crumbs by choosing categories and then sub-categories.
Keep track of your bills with Page Once Bills from PageOnce.com. You simply set it up listing all your monthly bills with the amounts due, as well as the due dates. When you open the app, you’ll see them listed in order of priority based on the due date. It will summarize the payment history of each bill, and it will even send you a reminder via email. It’s a free app and a great tool to help moms stay organized and stress-free.
Better Gift List keeps track of all the birthdays and special occasions in your circle to help you plan ahead from sending cards on time to shopping for gifts. You set it to track all the dates on your list, the recipients, the occasions, the gifts you want to purchase, and it keeps track for you. This app has lots of features and it can make your gift-giving so much easier.
