Being a stay-at-home mom can be a struggle for even the most organized and outgoing women out there. Juggling kids, schedules, shopping, cleaning and other duties can feel like a thankless and never-ending battle. However, with modern technology, it’s now easier than ever to run your household from your phone while taking care of your family.
Even 10 or 15 years ago, stay-at-home moms with small children struggled with the daily grind. We’d plan out our meals for the week, make a comprehensive grocery list, load a screaming child into the car, and try to get everything we needed into our cart and back home before naptime. It was inevitable that once you’d get everything out of the bags, you’d realize you’d forgotten something absolutely necessary for dinner. Maybe you’d haul yourself back to the store later, or call your husband and beg him to pick it up on his way home from work. But today, with the press of a button, you can have a grocery delivery service like Instacart bring it right to your front door in an hour or two. Meal prep services like Blue Apron also provide all the ingredients you need to make a healthy and delicious meal that will please even the pickiest eaters. Each pre-selected meal is delivered right to you, saving you a ton of time and hassle.
The speed of convenience of Amazon is almost unmatched when it comes to just about whatever you need for your household. By using their lightning-fast Prime delivery or subscribing to a set schedule of deliveries, you’ll never run out of crucial items, like diapers or baby wipes. If your friend posts about a fantastic new stuffed animal that their child adores, you can purchase it with a few clicks instead of going all the way to the store and risking a meltdown in the toy aisle.
Although being a stay-at-home mom is never simple, modern conveniences can now save you a ton of time, freeing up your schedule for doing things with your kids you really love.
