Ready for some sweetness!??
Here it is: Ok- so I have a couple of new apps on my iPhone that are making my life so much sweeter. If you read my last post- you will remember that I have a love/hate relationship with my iPhone – you can read about it here….
But, I am currently LOVING these apps as they make my life more happy, easy and exciting. These are all good things.
It’s just not right to hoard these apps to myself- so I wanted to share them with you all in the hopes that they will also make your time spent on your iPhone a little more efficient and enjoyable.
I stumbled across this one on myself when I was searching for “Doodle Pants”. If you have a toddler/baby you will likely know what Doodle pants are. They are super cute leggings with designs on them and a cute thing on the butt. Something only a baby with chubby thighs can really pull off. Liam has black and white striped ones with a pirate ship on his booty. I can’t even handle it.
This app is an on-line shopping mecca for people who like designer everything at super cheap prices. There are up to 70% off sales on everything from clothes, to children’s wear, bedding, nursery gear, shoes, home decor. It’s pretty awesome. The merchandise and retailers change daily- if you have favourite designers you can bookmark them and they will remind you the next time they appear on sale again. Love it.
If you are like me and the idea of taking two kids to the mall on a shopping trip does your head in- you need to check this out. You can check out sales within minutes and have awesome finds mailed to your house within 2-3 weeks.

2. Checkout 51 & Snap by Groupon
I was introduced to these 2 very similar apps, by a fellow stay at home mom. We were both looking for ways to keep our grocery costs down. When you are on maternity leave, you do a lot of cooking, baking and baby-food-making. The grocery store sort of becomes your second home.
Every week the app posts a list of different grocery items. Everything from laundry detergent, febreeze, broccoli, ice cream, bread, eggs, peppers- etc with amounts of money you can get back if you buy them. All you have to do is take a picture of your receipt when you return from the store and check off the things you have bought that were featured for the week and when you reach $20 in savings they will mail you a cheque for 20 bucks!
Pay me to buy the groceries I already need to buy! Sweeeeeet!

3. 1 Second Everyday
I was introduced to this app by another Mom friend. She posts these compilations of her kids every couple of weeks and they are fantastic. I loved it so much I splurged (4.99) and got it for myself. If you have kids- it is the best way to capture awesome moments of everyday and be able to watch them back in an easy and fast way. All you need to do is take a couple of seconds of video everyday (or if you are like me- whenever you can), upload it into the app, and then watch your own movie develop over time.
The idea is that you can take a walk down memory lane and see a whole year within a few minutes- by seeing your second long clips all blend together. You can literally watch your children develop and change right before your eyes. A little heartbreaking too, yes- but catching those sweet moments everyday and being able to watch them over and over again- ultimate sweetness.
