10 Helpful (and Quirky) Websites for Moms

Moms need more time. Moms need more help. The Internet can help! Here are some of my favorite technologies for moms:

1) Notakeout and Supercook

When you are scrambling to get dinner together and did not have time to go to the market, this is a life saver. Notakeout.com takes ingredients you already have in the kitchen and gives you recipes that are quick and easy. Supercook is another recipe search engine that lets you search by ingredients you have at home.

2) Stickk

Goals are hard to keep, especially mom’s who are trying to keep up with everyone. Stickk.com is a site that helps you stick to your goals by emailing friends and setting requirements that if you miss your goal…you have to donate money to charity. Great, non-intrusive reminders.

3) Whenisgood

Have you ever been stuck in one of those email chains where no one can figure out which time and date works for everyone on the chain? Whenisgood solves that. Whether you are a working mom and need to coordinate a meeting or a PTA mom trying to coordinate a lunch this saves time and headache.

4) Cafemom

For free advice and space to vent, many moms love Cafemom.

5) Mint

Mint is an amazing free website that helps you budget, keep track of bills and so much more. For any mom trying to deal with finances this is a lifesaver.

6) Google Docs

Google docs are a great way to share documents online. This can be good if you need to check over your child’s report so they do not have to print it out. You can share bills or ideas with spouses or at work. I have found that it cuts down on my faxes, emails and back and forth when editing home papers and documents.

7) Seatguru

If you are a mom who travels, this is for you. So often you get on a flight and realize you have the seats with an inch less leg room than everyone else—an inch is a lot on a plane! This free site lets you check out seating charts and tells you which are the best seats on each plane so you get the most bang and space for your buck.

8) Daily burn

Moms who are trying to lose weight should definitely check out daily burn with workout ideas, mixes and help. You are not on your own!

9) Story Something

Story Something is a cool website that puts your children at the center of their own interactive story worlds. You can also share stories, collect items, and earn awards to open new reading. I think this can save time and energy and make bedtime more interactive.

10) Let Simon Decide

If you are at that place where you just can’t decide what to do…Let Simon Decide. This is a decision making site that gives advice to help you decide what option you should choose. For indecisive moms, it can save a lot of time.

I hope you will explore some of these awesome, time-saving sites. I think that they can definitely make a moms life easier!
