Apps/ Health/ Tech

How many apps do you have on your phone right now? I have over 100 apps on my iPhone, all asking me to do something ASAP with notifications going off constantly.

After all, it’s important to be aware of how you’re feeling with everything going on, and how it can be managed. Keep reading for the 411 on my new favorite app for just that.

The Must-Get Activity Tracker Moms Need to Snag

Apps/ Health/ Mom/ Products/ Tech

When you’re breastfeeding there’s a natural system in place to help you lose the baby weight, but remembering to stay active during your day gets harder each day. Remembering when it’s time to feed the baby (bottle or breastmilk), take a pill or get up and play outside with the kiddo can get lost in the shuffle of a hectic day, too. Sometimes when the kiddo finally falls asleep it’s on your arm and you know you can’t move an inch or nap time is all done so you get in the habit of vegging out. After getting through the toddler and baby years it wasn’t until my kiddo was 4 that I realized I had waited too long to make active, healthy living a party of my day, too. I found the LEAF by Bellabeat online and reached out to them about testing it out. I’m so glad I did. I’ve watched as friends and family bought other activity trackers and none of them really felt like a fit for me until this one. Read more

Instead, I use discount apps, discount codes and look for all available deals I can find. One of the newest savings apps I’ve learned about allows you to pass savings from one user to another using a ripple effect, instantly.

The New Way to Stay Digitally Connected With Family

Apps/ Parent Life/ Tech

About 8 years ago my cousins visited for Thanksgiving and we all headed out to shop at a nearby outlet center on Black Friday. My mom, sister and I have continued this shopping tradition, but we haven’t been able to see my cousins on Thanksgiving weekend since . . . until this Thanksgiving weekend. Just as I was considering an impromptu visit to my cousins in Southern California, they told me that they planned to drive up on Black Friday for a visit! Normally when we all drive down to my cousins’ homes or they drive up to see us we spend a lot of time calling and texting one another to get location updates but since they planned to travel on Black Friday (while the rest of us would be busy shopping) we looked for some handy alternatives and found an app called Life360. (It’s a free app available for Android, Windows and Apple/ios products that helps families and friends stay connected.) Read more

6 Free Apps For Selling or Buying Kids Clothes

Apps/ Birthing/ Family/ Kiddo Style/ Tech

Remember when garage sales were the only way to get money for great outgrown items? Then Criagslist and consignment sales became popular . . . but even with those you could end up waiting a while for a buyer, or not get quite as much as you were hoping. So Facebook members started buy/sell/trade groups for local areas, and that worked OK for some members but not others (see 40 Signs You Might Be a BST Admin). Avoid the shortchanges, last-minute flakes and time wasters with some of these newer alternatives — all available as apps on your phone! Keep reading for 6 apps you’ll want to download today!
