The best resources for Moms to save time, money and sanity while finding joy in the everyday moments!

Smart Mom Hacks

There never seems to be enough hours in the day for Mom’s to get everything done.

We have the best intentions of being Pinteresty-Moms, but we go non-stop, and the truth is we get TIRED.

Like so tired that the 5th cup of coffee will not even matter.

We are the queens of MULTITASKING!

Not so much because we want to be, because we HAVE to be!

So here are the SMART MOM RESOURCES that will help you save time, save money, get organized, and be the BEST MOM you can be!

Best Parenting Books

Here are the BEST books that I have read that have helped me to be a better mom!

These are a MUST-HAVE for parents! In fact, I have given some of these as gifts to friends who are expecting.

Read them all for FREE for signing up for 1/month free of Amazon Kindle.

Or if you would rather listen, you can try a FREE month of Audible.

Positive Parenting Solutions

Are you guilty of yelling at your kids? Or does it seem like your kids NEVER listen until you raise your voice? Then you feel guilty that you yelled ,right. It is a never-ending cycle of Mom guilt.

Positive parenting solutions is a game-changer. 

Positive Parenting is a method that builds strong parent-child relationships. It totally changed my parenting style and I can’t remember the last time I raised my voice.

My kids are happier AND I am happier!

So if you want to get your kids to listen without nagging or yelling then check out this FREE workshop!

Grab a pen and paper because you will want to take notes, because there will be some “aha” moments. 

This method REALLY works!

I implemented it right ways and was blown away by how easy it was.  All parents need to take this FREE class, it’s the parenting advice we ALL need.


Rakuten is one of the oldest cash back sites on the internet. You may recall that it used to be called Ebates.

It actually pays you to do online shopping!

If you haven’t signed up for them, then you need to NOW.

It is legit, I promise!

So what you do is make an account, then anytime you do any online shopping, you click on the Rakuten site and then find the store you’re wanting to shop at and just click on through to it.


You earn cash back for every purchase! Get a $10 bonus for signing up with this link!


Swagbucks is another little money-making site that I use often. You can use it on your computer or your phone.

Basically, you get paid to watch videos, do surveys, and play games.

You can either earn gift cards to your favorite stores like Target, Starbucks, Amazon, Walmart or even a Visa.

Or you can use your points to cash it out with Paypal.

Last year, I earned over $900 in gift cards through Swagbucks and that is what I used to pay Christmas presents.

Ibotta is another money saver that I use. It’s a great way to save money on groceries and more—without clipping coupons!

I use it EVERYTIME I grocery shop!

It’s so simple to use. Just sign up for Ibotta, download the FREE app, then check what stores in your area offer cash back. It even works with online retailers.

After you make your purchase the app has a built in scanner that just scans your receipt, then just like that you just earned cash back!

Shop with Ibotta in-store, and online get up to $20 in Welcome Bonuses!


Cozi Family Organizer

I use Cozi every single day! It is a FREE app that let’s the whole family stay organized. The shared calendar keeps my husband and teen on the same page with appointments and daily reminders. We can all seamlessly add items to grocery list as well. 

 Cozi Family Organizer: Say goodbye to family chaos with the app that organizes calendars, lists and more. And it’s FREE!

CoinOut was developed on Shark Tank and has over 10,000 positive reviews in the app store.

Basically, you just shop like you normally do then upload any receipt in the app and earn cash back.

You don’t have to find specific deals or take time to see if a certain retailer is on the program like you do for Ibotta, or Rakuten.

You just snap a pic of your receipt and earn money! Download it now, it’s FREE!

Cooking Hacks

I don’t know about your family but in my family we have picky eaters, food allergies, a teen who is vegan one day and not the next, and a husband that always wants a real “hearty man’s” meal.

It’s so hard to come up with easy, cheap, and healthy meals!

It’s too expensive for a family of five to eat out all the time, so therefore, I am forced to cook. I used to love cooking, but now it’s just one of my many “mom” chores!

Here is a list of things that I use to make cooking so much easier, and maybe a little bit more enjoyable.


Meal Plan

Save your time, by preventing all those last-minute stops to the grocery store.

Save your money, by using the grocery budget page to track your spending and store coupons!

Save your sanity, by marking one less thing off your list by having all of your meals planned in advance!

Try out a $5 Meal Plan!

Have every single meal planned out: breakfast, lunch, and dinner planned every day for just $5/month!

If you don’t want to pay $5 then still sign up to get 40 FREE Recipes!


As a busy mom, you probably never get a chance to sit down, I know I don’t. Well why not get paid for all that moving around.

I use the SweatCoin app on my phone. It is like a pedometer that pays you to be active. You don’t earn a lot but every bit counts.

Last year, I earned enough to cash out $100 through PayPal. So it’s worth it to have this little app paying you to walk.

It’s completely free, download it now. It will do you nothing but good!

Best Organizers

Before I started using an organizer, I was always late, and forgot pretty much everything. 

Honestly, I don’t know how some people get by without using one.
