The past several years proved that moms everywhere truly earned their superhero stripes. As a mama of twin toddlers, I mom hard all day and it can be overwhelming. It can be impossible to appreciate all the little moments when the routine of the day taxes you physically, but even more so, mentally.
So, in honor of moms everywhere, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite sanity-savers that have helped me automate my life this past year. From organizers to Bluetooth trackers, these products are sure to help even the busiest mamas find a few sanity-saving minutes of me-time in their day.
We all know – and hate – when we have to basically turn our purse inside out to find our keys, phone, or sanitizer. This multi-pocketed felt purse organizer transforms that bottomless pit into a streamlined system, so you're not searching for forever to find your keys.
The best part is it easily transfers from your purse to the diaper bag, beach bag – you name it – saving you time and effort. Pro tip: label compartments to remind you of what needs to be replenished.
When I asked some mom friends what their best sanity saver was, I got plenty of votes for the Revlon One-Step Blowout Brush. With over 226,000 rave reviews on Amazon, it’s safe to say the masses agree! The oval brush design smoothes hair and the rounded edges create volume at the root and full-bodied bends at the ends – coming pretty close to a salon blowout even if you’re not a blow-drying pro.
It really cuts blow-drying time in half and the ion generator reduces heat damage. I’ve been using mine for over five years. I’m seriously hooked.
There are so many instances when I’m running late because I’m stuck searching for a pair of keys, my phone, or my wallet! I would seriously entrust my entire life to be run by Tile Mate, since my two toddlers can’t be trusted for seven seconds with anything critical to my rushing out the door.
Tile Mate’s Bluetooth-enabled fobs attach to all of those easily-lost essentials – like your keys or purse – and seamlessly connects to your phone. I love how it integrates with Alexa and that it can ring your lost items when it’s within 200 feet. It'll also work in reverse to find your phone, even if it’s on silent.
You smile through it because you’re lovely, but truth be told you’re tired of reheating your coffee over and over as you run everyone else's lives. I really can’t tell you how much joy the Ember mug has brought into my life, and I want you to give this type of joy to yourself.
This mug and coaster set keeps your coffee or tea hot all day. I love that I’m not tethered to cords and I can walk around with my mug too – once charged, it keeps liquids hot for an hour before you need to pop it back on the coaster, so you can drink your coffee or tea as you’re chasing after kids or folding laundry.
You can personalize your LED color and so much more on the app – plus, it also looks downright gorgeous! I feel like a human again – and when my jolly, fully-caffeinated mood trickles down to everyone, it's a win/win.
This pick sort of feels like you’re cheating and getting a gift for the kiddos, but here’s the deal: Open-ended toys keep kids occupied so you can have a minute to yourself.
This Geomag set includes magnetic sticks, silver balls, and glittery panels that interlock together to create endless combinations of engineering fun. It’s served double-duty for me as a sort of meditative therapy, plus it’s fun disconnecting and building something new for a few minutes, too.
Fashionable Rolling Grocery Cart
There’s really nothing more frustrating than a solo grocery run turning disastrous with flimsy bags that fall apart and multiple trips to and from the car. That’s why you’ll love this stylish, Insta-worthy, rattan rolling market cart. It even doubles as a laundry basket and indoor décor, too.
Good Wireless Earbuds
There’s nothing more blissful than silence, but when that’s not an option, drowning out the noise definitely works! Pop one or both of these waterproof, Bluetooth earbuds by Tozo in and play relaxing music, catch up on a podcast while cooking or fire up a meditation session to fall asleep.
I’ve never seen so many positive reviews on an earbud ever… over 133,000! And the price is right, too – which means if mom misplaces them, it’s no biggie. Who wants the stress of another irreplaceable thing to babysit?
