Life Hacks For Busy Moms

 

If my lack of posting is any indication, life as a new mom is BUSY! Since I work full-time, I try to make the most of the time I have with Ford. The last thing I want to do is drag Ford on a million errands on the weekends. That’s not fun for either of us. In this season of life, it’s worth my money to indulge in the following life savers!

Amazing Spaces – I was feeling overwhelmed by the amount of baby gear Ford had outgrown that was stacking up in our dining room. When we decided to put our house on the market, I had to get it out fast. That’s when I discovered this amazing secure storage space! It seriously feels more like a lodge then storage center. The building is well-lit, secure, and impeccably clean. The staff is super friendly too! Are you drowning in clutter? New clients get $10 off your first month when you mention Sunday Beach (in addition to any other specials, new rentals only, first month only). It felt SO good to remove the eyesore and get our dining room back!

Eco Modern Concierge – Amy has helped me organize Ford’s nursery and shared her organizing tips here. I recently used her personal errands services. I had a mountain of errands pile up. Amy picked up meds from the vet, shoes from the repair shop, items from the Monogram Shop, shoes for a blog collaboration and delivered two presents. In two hours, Amy did what would have taken me 4 and probably over two weeks time. It was such a relief to get those items knocked off my to-do list!

Instacart – Do you hate grocery shopping on Sundays as much as I do? I used to enjoy it but now its just one more thing I have to do. Enter Instacart! This free app has given me my Sundays back. Simply select your store and add the items to your cart. I order groceries from HEB, bottled water and bulk snacks from Costco, and occasionally cat food from Petco. Groceries are generally delivered in an hour or you can select a specific time frame. Hint: Pay attention to the fees when you check out. You can waive the service fee and adjust the tip (or select none to determine tip after delivery). Get $10 towards your first order when you sign up here. (I’ll get $10 too.)
