Trello

I use Trello for EVERYTHING. And I show you how to use it as a digital homemaking binder in my course, Trello for the Rockstar Homemaker. One of the best parts of Trello is that it is free, you can upgrade your account but if you are just using it as a homemaking binder and not for business purposes, the free account will be perfect fro you.

The Homemaking Foundations Podcast

This is my all-time favorite podcast for all things homemaking. Jami Balmet is a wonderful wife and mom with a passion for encouraging and equipping Christian homemakers through practical tips and Biblical encouragement.

Cozi App

This is the only way we've been able to keep our calendar straight. My husband and I share a family account but we have our own profiles and can go in and add things to the calendar and it syncs to our family calendar. It can notify the other person that you've added an event to the calendar (which is awesome because my husband is notorious for forgetting to tell me about things, haha) and you can set reminders as well. We would be totally lost without our Cozi calendar. You can also create grocery lists and menu plan within the app.

Dollar Tree

In the past year I have (finally) discovered how awesome the Dollar Tree is for things like kids' toys, kitchen tools, holiday decor, and more. I always love visiting Dollar Tree because you never know what fun thing you will find, for only $1! Yes, they aren't the highest quality items but again, you're only paying $1 so for things like toy plastic animals and holiday decor, it's totally perfect.

Think Dirty App

This app is really cool, you can type in a household product and see exactly what is in it and which of those ingredients are toxic. It rates the products on a scale of 0-10, zero being the safest and ten being the most toxic. It also explains why the ingredients are toxic and will give you cleaner alternatives to the dangerous items. I do my best to only use products that are rated 4 or below. The app is free and a great resource!

Diaper Bag Backpack

This isn't the exact diaper bag we have, ours is no longer available, but it has all the same features. This is a great bag if you have just one kid OR if you have multiple kiddos. Andddd it's less than $30 so that's a major win!

Rosett Co.

I love the precious bows I got for Baby Audrey from Rosett Co. They are a great quality and come in an array of beautiufl colors and patterns.

Turbans for Tots

Turbans for Tots is another great shop for headbands and bows for babies and toddlers. I even got Audrey and I a "mommy and me" matching headband set! And the swim hat that I got Audrey (to the right is a photo of my Audrey wearing it) is BEYOND adorable. I can't even handle the cuteness.

Fisher-Price Smart Connect Bassinet

We got this bassinet for Baby Audrey because we switched bedrooms with our boys so the pack 'n play we used for them as newborns, no longer fit in our room so we needed something smaller. This bassinet is cute and isn't too heavy so it can be moved around the house. The settings on it are awesome, Audrey loves the vibration setting and I enjoy the nature sounds on the sound machine.

KitchenAid Stand Mixer with Glass Bowl

I don't know what I would do without my KitchenAid Mixer, this dude is awesome and I use it daily. I love how versatile it is, they offer so many attachments so you can use your mixer for everything. I specifically like the one with the glass bowl because you can better see what you're mixing.
