Must-Have Apps for Busy Moms | Cute Beltz

Whether you’re a working mom, or a stay-at-home mom, there’s no doubt that you’re up to your eyeballs in errands and chores. Moms are some of the busiest people in the world and keeping up with the daily to-do’s, special school projects and doctor’s appointments can become overwhelming in no time flat.  From grocery lists to travel assistance to health-related apps, we’ve pulled together a collection of our favorite phone applications that can help busy moms in their day to day routine.

Cozi

Cozi.com allows you to organize your family calendar, make shopping lists, manage to-do lists, leave reminders to yourself and jot in your family journal — all in one place. With their free Cozi iPhone, Android and BlackBerry apps, you can access and manage your Cozi account on-the-go.

BrainPop

My daughters are big fans of BrainPop for its interesting fun facts and “movie of the day” feature. I’m a big fan of BrainPop for the educational benefit it provides. With a variety of topics — including social studies, art, science, and more — kids can continue learning after school has ended.

Karoo

Do you feel like your baby’s life is already flying by? Do you have trouble keeping friends and family in the loop on all your child’s latest achievements? Karoo, the first mobile app from Care.com, helps parents, caregivers and relatives stay connected and share all the moments of childhood as they happen. You can create a private network of people you want to share information, pictures and milestones with. It’s also great for working parents, as your nanny or sitter can send you updates on naps, pictures of your child’s latest craft project and videos of play time at the park.

iCookbook

With over 2,000 recipes, this app makes meal prep simple. No more worrying about finding healthy dinnertime options to serve your kids. You can browse recipes, personalize them (great for families with picky eaters!), create shopping lists and share ideas with friends. There is also a great hands-free voice option, so you don’t have to actually touch your tablet with flour-covered hands.

Mint.com

Mint-App

Organizing a family’s budget and back accounts is hard work. Those math and economics classes you took in school seem like a very long time ago and maybe you need a little help remembering how to best manage your money. Once you set up an account, this personal finance app automatically stays on top of your transactions, categorizes them into helpful groups so you know what you’re spending money on and shows you how your monthly budget is doing.

Grocery iQ

Grocery-IQ

One of the best free apps for busy moms, Grocery iQ saves money and time when grocery shopping. Their barcode scanning feature makes creating lists easy. You can sort by category, aisle and more. This app is also integrated with coupons, so you can find easily find savings on the items on your list before leaving home. Grocery iQ is free for iPhone, iPad and Android users.

Kids Meal Deals

Kids Meal Deals is updated regularly to keep all the dining promotions as current as possible. Available for iPhone, BlackBerry and Android, this app will use your location (or you can enter another one) to find all the best dining deals for kids nearby.

Fandango Movies — Times & Tickets

Every mom and dad deserves an occasional date night. If a movie is in your future, don’t make a move without this free app. Fandango’s “My Movies” list lets you keep track of what you want to see and alerts you when they hit a theater nearby. You can even pick and reserve your seating directly from the app. Fan and critic reviews, as well as movie trailers, are included. So hire a babysitter and treat yourself to a grownups-only night!

National Pancake Day – Yippie, FREE Pancakes!! | Cute Beltz

Today is National Pancake Day, whooo!!! That’s great news for my belly because I adore(yes, I said adore) pancakes.  Growing up and still to this day my Mom makes the BEST pancakes!!! But, today I will celebrate at IHOP because unfortunately, my mom and I live in separate sates, so off to IHOP this evening to enjoy a stack of free pancakes!  The best thing about this deal is that they are raising money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals©.  So, leave a donation to support this worthy cause.

Here are the details for FREE pancakes at IHOP:

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.

In return for the free pancakes, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals© or other designated local charities.
