I imagine every busy mom wants to make her life easier. And I’m sure she has her own Amazon Favorites. Amazon all by itself is one of my absolute favorite things for not only saving money but also saving time — it seriously makes my life easier all by itself. Shopping at Amazon keeps me from running to the store and this one thing alone saves me hundreds every month.

I used to go to Target every single week. That was a huge mistake …
I don’t think I ever got out of that store spending less than $100.00. I bet you know what I’m talking about. And, it used up hours of my time.
I’m always searching for ways to make my life easier so now if there’s something I need I just put it in my Amazon cart or on my Amazon Wish List.

Make a Busy Mom’s Life Easier with These Amazon Favorites
The first thing I want to tell you about is something you can’t get at Amazon. But, it’s something that every busy mom just can’t live without. It’s a planner. I use the Living Well Planner because it helps me track everything in one place. Not only is it a monthly calendar, but it has a weekly calendar too. On top of that, there’s a place to plan meals for the week, track my budget and expenses, plan goals and projects, and even note things I’m thankful for. And, to top it all off — it’s beautiful.
You can start it at any time of the year that you want, so no need to wait for January. Go here to buy your planner now.
Frugal and Flexible Coffee Maker
I used to have a Keurig single-cup coffee maker like this one, but when I started working from home, I wanted a lot more coffee than just one cup. After a lot of searching, I found this coffee maker by Hamilton Beach and quickly ordered it. I can make a full pot or I can make a single cup. I absolutely love it! Most of the time I make a full pot, but there are those times when I know I’m only going to be home long enough to drink one cup of coffee.
It really is a frugal way to make my coffee at home and is far cheaper to make than using coffee pods. I buy my coffee in 3-lb. tins at Costco and it lasts me a long time. I use these insulated coffee tumblers from Contigo when I want to take a cup of coffee on the go. I also use a simple hand-held milk frother, which adds a nice touch to those make-at-home coffees.
We have salads several times per week and having a salad spinner makes a huge difference. We chop the lettuce and put it in the spinner basket, then fill the bowl with fresh cold water and a splash of vinegar. Next, I lightly massage the lettuce and lift the basket out. Pour out the bowl and wipe the dirt out of the bottom. I then put the basket back in and spin like mad.

We also know that salads are more likely to happen if they’re easy to make. Having the lettuce prepared ahead of time is a huge time saver and makes salads for dinner and lunch so easy. Once we’ve cleaned and spun all the lettuce, I put it in this produce keeper so it stays fresh. I hate how you buy a bag of lettuce at the store, then once it’s opened it starts to turn all orange and wilted. Keeping our lettuce in one of these prevents that from happening.
It makes having salads so much easier because I can spend one day washing the lettuce, then have it on hand for several other salads during the week. This is a busy mom’s dream when you’re trying to keep your family healthy.
