I was lying in bed last Sunday morning searching for apps on my iPhone. In particular, I was originally looking for some apps that would help kids with chores. Well, I found two great apps that I cannot keep a secret. Every mom in the world needs to know about these two apps.
- Lickety Split Just buy it right now in the App Store! I don’t know about you, but I was sick of nagging my kids and repeating myself over and over. Brush your teeth, get your jammies on, put on your shoes, etc. Lickety Split (I even downloaded the full version) is a life changer. I’m so grateful for this app. We all know that kids love a challenge, a countdown, a race against time, but this is better than anything I’ve ever tried before. The kids are asked to complete/do certain tasks like pick up toys, get dressed, get ready to leave the house, etc. in an awesome British accent before the classical music timer runs out! It’s AWESOME. The music gets faster and faster as the timer gets closer to zero and I’ve never seen my kids move so fast! Ever since we’ve started using this app, life has gotten much easier, and it never gets old! The classical music puts me in a good mood – it’s so much better than repeating myself over and over again! Seriously, go for the full version on your droid at .99
- Home Routine I paid for the full version on this one too! Looking to organize all the tasks that need to be done each week? Each month? Daily? Cleaning, shopping, to-do lists, this app is amazing. I will admit, I do need to spend more time customizing my zones and what I need to accomplish and when, but you will love this app! You can set when and how often you need to do things like clean your entryway and stairs, declutter your cupboards, clean out the fridge, disinfect the trash can and clean corner cobwebs! It’s an amazing way to keep a cleaning schedule! From laundry, to bedrooms to organization – you won’t be disappointed! There’s even a built in timer so you can keep yourself on task! I love the seasonal and bi-weekly tasks and how you can edit your home’s rooms and zones to be perfectly suited for YOU! This one costs $4.99 on iTunes, but to me, it’s worth it! Buy it here!
Got any great apps that you use on a regular basis that have been major game changers? Please share them below! We could all use a little help at housekeeping, cooking, organizing, and keeping the family sane, right?
