Tools of the Trade

No matter what aspect of motherhood you’re focused on, there are some great tools to make life easier, more joyful, and less chaotic.  I am obsessed with finding new ways to make life easier as a mom and am a 100% lover of all things related to technology, organization, home, kids and personal development.  I truly enjoy passing on my favorite finds, hoping they will make your life better too.

Many of these links are affiliate links, which means I may get a commission if you purchase. However, none of the fees for these resources have been increased to compensate me.

Let me know what works for you and if you are searching for a solution in any other area, that I might be able to support.

If you’re looking for tools and tips to get more organized, this is one of my favorite topics.

This is the time of year for undated planners.  One of my favorites is Panda Planner.  It has monthly, weekly and daily pages (the best of all worlds) and is based on the science behind productivity.

We all want to feel strong, lean and energetic and serve as role models for our kids when it comes to health.  Here are a few of my favorite resources.


Instant Pot

I love making quick and healthy dinners in the Instant Pot.  Do you have one yet?  If so, I’d love to hear about your favorite recipes.  If not, check this out.  It’s so much faster than a crock pot (and always saves me if I haven’t planned ahead, it’s 4pm and haven’t thawed anything…)


Instant Pot Cookbook

I love this cookbook as a companion to the Instant Pot.



​Superfood Nutrition

I love this nutritional system for the whole family.  The boys love the shakes for breakfast and I really like starting their day with a balanced meal.  I use the products to keep my energy high and my cravings low.
