9 Best Apps For Moms
Let’s be honest…we all rely pretty heavily on our phones, right? Facebook, texting, even occasionally making actual phone calls. Even better if it can help make our mom life a little bit easier! These are my favorite apps as a mom! I use just about every one of these every single day. Being a mom is a handful in itself, and I certainly welcome every bit of help I can get!

This app is great for keeping notes and to-do lists. I also use it to keep up with new recipes I want to try.
GroupMe is a group messaging app. When I moved across the country about 5 years ago, I downloaded this and set up a group chat for all my Arkansas besties. Over the years, many of us have moved to different states, and can’t catch up as often as we’d like. This is a great way for us to keep up with what is going on in everyone’s lives, without sending out 20 texts or making 20 phone calls every time something happens that we want to share.
I do have to limit my Amazon app usage, because it’s sooooo easy to go crazy with it. Amazon has everything you’d ever want, and it’s right at your fingertips. I like to keep several wish lists going to keep track of gift ideas, or things we might need around the house. I also use it when I’m out shopping, just to see if what I’m eyeing is any cheaper on Amazon (which a lot of times it is).
This is one of my favorites! It’s basically a rebate app, that gives you money back when you buy certain items. You can cash out for a gift card, or get it back in cash through PayPal or Venmo. Whenever I’m going grocery shopping, I ALWAYS check out my Ibotta app first to see what rebates there are available. They’ve even started adding retail stores, and online options!
I could get so lost on Pinterest, and it’s something I like to do when I get a few minutes of me time after the kiddos go to bed. Whether it’s how tos, fellow mom stories, or just looking at pretty clothes, I love it all!
We all have crap lying around the house that we need to get rid of. Letgo is a great way to advertise locally what you want to sell. OfferUp is another great selling app that I use. *Always be safe when meeting up with strangers. I usually meet in the Target parking lot near my house, and always during the day.
We all know that Target is a Mom Haven. There is a Starbucks when you walk in the door, and so many pretty things to look at! Cartwheel is basically a Target coupon app. Certain items will be listed at various percentages off, and when you check out, that discount comes right off your total! No need to redeem later, you get the savings immediately. I have saved hundreds of dollars with cartwheel on mostly things I would have bought anyways. I will admit, though, that I look through Cartwheel before shopping to see what deals there are that may interest me. I got some killer deals on toys at Christmas Time!
There are a million photo editing apps available, but Photofy is my favorite. You can easily make photo collages, use filters and borders, and also add text and decorations to your images. So fun!
9. 1000 Books
I just found out about this recently. My aunt is a librarian, and she told me about this program called, “1000 Books Before Kindergarten.” It’s basically a way to keep track of all the books you and your little have read, and they get recognition for hitting certain milestones. I know 1000 sounds like a huge number, but it’s really not difficult to hit. You are probably already reading AT LEAST one book a night. It adds up quicker than you realize. Taking regular trips to the library helps to explore books you wouldn’t have found otherwise.
