Every mum could do with a bit more help around the house. We all struggle with the day to day running of the home, running our kids’ and partner’s life as well as our own. There could be no greater gift to a mother than a way of making this whole process somehow easier. Well, fortunately for us there are a number of websites and apps out there with the potential to make your life easier. And fortunately for you, I’ve taken the time to assemble a cheeky little list of them, so you don’t have to spend any of your precious spare time scrambling around on the web.
Without further ado, here are our top websites and apps that will make your life as a mum that bit easier.
Walk Jog Run
This is a great website that will help you out on your quest towards better health. We all know that a key part of most mums’ home lives is concerned with getting fit and healthy. But it can often be a bit of hassle, and a general difficulty. If you want to go on a run, you find yourself planning it for hours beforehand. Using this website, you can plan out your route, seeing how far it is and how long it will take. Or you can follow someone else’s route, taking even more of the preparation time out of the process. This means that you spend far more time beating the streets than just thinking about it.
Phone Number Tracer
This is a handy little service that allows you to trace the phone call that just rang you up. No more missing the phone because you’re in the shower and then wondering who it was for hours. Use the phone number tracer to take the mystery out of your landline. It can also be a very handy way to begin to screen your calls, making your home a place of relaxation rather than a hectic office with calls coming and going at all hours.
This is a fairly widely used one, but it can transform your home life. As everyone understands, a key part of being a parent is being a cheap and readily available taxi service for the kids. Take some time for yourself by using this app to ferry your kids around. It provides all of the convenience and cost of a regular taxi in combination with a far lower cost.
This is not specifically an app or a website. It is instead a service provided by a popular commercial website. Using Amazon Prime you can order any item from the Amazon website, and it will arrive through the post under one day later. This can vitally cut down on your shopping costs. You will still be making that weekly grocery shop (until you convert to online grocery shopping). But for any bits and pieces, or one-off purchases you can rely on Amazon Prime. It can be a great way to save time, and it will cost you less than the petrol you would use to go to the shops would over the course of the year-long membership.
