5 Things No Mom Should Be Without... According to Jennifer Davidson
June 23, 2010
When StyleBakeryMom.com launched earlier this year, I was immediately a fan. Jennifer Davidson is the editor over there and like me, she loves shopping. In addition to hunting down great finds for moms and their children, Jen has two 2-year-old twin boys so she definitely has her hands full. She took some time to chat with us about what she can’t live without and we’re sharing her personal mommy finds with you.
The Scramble.com: “I signed up for this online weekly menu planner a few months ago and it has completely revolutionized dinnertime. I no longer stare into my refrigerator wondering what to make now that I get 5 recipes emailed to me every week. The recipes are earth-friendly, healthy and kid-tested–and most take only 30 minutes to prepare, including side dishes. I print out a shopping list and shop once a week for everything I need to cook 5 dinners. It feels great knowing my family is eating a healthy home-cooked meal every night, and I don’t have to stress about it.”
iPad: “Sure, I bought it for me, but I had no idea how much my kids would love it! There is an amazing selection of fun, interactive and educational games and books for preschoolers. It’s a great way to keep them occupied and entertained. Plus, my kids are too young to use a mouse, so it’s the perfect way to introduce them to using a computer.”
Lands’ End totes: “We use these totes for everything! They’re perfect for storing toys, toting beach supplies, grocery shopping or packing for a weekend away. You can even monogram them so your kids know which bag belongs to them.”
Clinique All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage: “I almost never get enough sleep, but I hate looking tired. This cooling rollerball refreshes puffy eyes instantly and helps massage away bags. It feels great every time I use it.”
Keurig Home Brewing System: “The Keurig home brewing system gives me the perfect fresh cup of coffee every morning, without having to deal with messy grinds or stale coffee. Plus, my kids love to pop the K-cup in and watch the coffee come out.”
