All moms are busy, but a working mom takes occupied to a whole new level. Today “women now make up half of all workers in the United States, with nearly 4 in 10 homes having a mom that is also a working mother,” according to AmericanProgress.org.  Between everything that a woman needs to do at work and running a house there is little time for herself.  However, with the right accessories even a busy mom can find the time to do everything for work and family and carve out some me time and pampering.

 

Smartphone – Whether it be an iPhone, a BlackBerry, or a Windows phone, a smartphone offers a busy mom a way to stay organized and keep kids entertained. With a smartphone there are apps for all sorts of things a working mom needs, such as a calendar to track all of the appointments that fill up a day, educational apps that help keep kids learning while on the go, and apps for Netflix and Pandora for entertainment during the down times.

 

Crockpot – A simple kitchen accessory like a crockpot can give a mom hours of time with her family by making meal time easier and clean up a snap. There are plenty of free recipes online, but Allrecipes.com has an entire section dedicated to crock pot meals. With dinner cooking during the day and with a liner in the crock pot dinner time and clean up is a snap leaving more time to focus on quality time with the family.

 

Comfy Undergarments – All working moms need is a pair of compression or light support tights. They go under your work clothes and will leave your body feeling awesome after a long day of work. Between work and home there isn’t always a lot of time for exercise, but to maintain healthy legs that feel good at the end of the day a working mom just needs to put them on in the morning and go.  Compression leg sleeves help provide healthy blood flow in the legs and support and strengthen the legs. There are many types of compression socks to choose from and shopping online makes it an easy purchase to make.

 

Great On-The-Go Bag – To fill with everything a mom might need when running around with the kids. Having a bag filled with healthy snacks, water bottles, wet wipes, and a small emergency kit, to name a few, can save time and money between extra curricular activities, appointments, and all those other things that keep the family out and about when mom gets home off work.

 

Moms are more prevalent then ever in the workforce. Working moms need some time for themselves between all that work and home demand and with these four must have accessories every working mom can get things done and have a little pampering for herself. Being a full-time working mother is enough hard work on its own – make life easier for yourself!  The key is to stay focus, get organized, and find the right balance between profession and parenthood.

  1. Our smartphones have really become our calendars and planners in one, haven’t they?

  2. I agree with all four! I have each of them, too! I have to add a Keurig or good coffee maker, doesn’t hurt, either! 🙂

  3. Amen to the slow cooker. I use mine as often as possible!
