Living in the city for most of my adult life without a car, I had an app for everything, including, food delivery, banking, and groceries. Now a suburban mom, I still prefer to do most of my shopping online, and nothing makes me happier than finding a great deal or discovering a fantastic product.
I mean what can’t you do online? I’ve found apartments, jobs, a husband, more apartments, a dog, and a house. I have a love/hate relationship with my phone. I am truly nostalgic for the days when a phone was just a phone, and yet, my iPhone allows me to multi-task in ways I never thought possible. When I am sitting watching my daughter go potty, I’m ordering toilet paper on Amazon. As I laid in a hospital bed in labor, I was ordering groceries from FreshDirect and texting my cleaning lady. When I walk my dog, I can schedule a doctor’s appointment on ZocDoc. As I’m unloading the dishes, I am listening to a podcast. While waiting for my son’s bus, I’m emailing his teacher. Like you, my phone is my lifeline these days.
I’ve dreamed of creating a blog for years. Thank you for allowing this to become a reality. Basically, this blog is a little bit MacGyver meets Oprah’s favorite things. My other current aspirations include: appearing on Shark Tank, opening a coffee shop, never drinking bad coffee, always having wine on hand, writing a novel, finally getting that perfect haircut, keeping the kids’ playroom organized, and sleeping until noon (OK, I’d settle for 7:30).
Join me as I discover new products and apps, and try my best to save some money as a stay-at-home mom. And, please share your best findings with me.
