As a mom I know we all push things we want and need to the back burner #becausekids! It’s easy to try to pinch pennies and save here and there but sometimes that results in us not getting the things that would make our life easier, or make us happier, so there are a few things in life I splurge on that honestly help keep me sane, help me feel better and in turn be help me be a better mom! Now of course I’m not saying a vacuum cleaners physically makes me a better mom or a purse but you know what they do…make me feel better for/about myself and in turn that directly affects my daily job as a mom! So here are a few of my favorites!
1. A handbag you love
Take this for what you will but I always feel more put together when I have a cute handbag! Even if I’m in dirty jeans and a basic tee, throw a cute handbag with it and instatly #chicmom, with dirty hair 😉 My favorite is this one & I have my eye on this one!
2. A cordless vaccuum
Could NOT, would NOT live life without this thing. (Okay, thats a little dramatic) My house will probably forever be a mess with 3 kids but hey, at least I can vaccuum whenever I want and run from the kids without someone tripping on the cord….it’s a game changer. Read more about my tips for a clean-ish house here! I mean my floor could feed a village but once I get done with this thing, it’s ahhhhhhmazing!
(As you can see this is Huxx’s spot in our kitchen and holy food, he thinks it’s SO fun to throw everything)
3. A great coffee maker
Just recently received this baby from Ninja and OMG, it makes every morning a great morning, minus the fact that I wake up almost daily to cereal and milk alllll over the table because Gre is #momming!
4. Snacks for my kids that I feel GOOD giving them
I don’t know about y’all but my kids love snacks, like they can skip every meal of the day but my goodness they throw back some snacks, so I splurge on healthy, fun snacks for them so I don’t feel guilty letting them snack whenever they want(ish)…I do put my foot down sometimes but heck, when you’re outnumbered like I am on the reg, it’s all about survival right?! These Pure Growth Organic snacks are a must have around our house! They have so many different options from popcorn, crackers, to trail mix…and they have characters on the packaging which let’s be honest, if you have kids you know anything with their favorite character on it always gets eaten first! It honestly makes me feel like a better mom when I know they are snacking on something healthier for them, so I’ll splurge on these any day!
5. Comfy Slippers
I just got these slippers a few months ago and #holygamechanger…like how did I walk around the house without them? I have always been a huge fan of being barefoot but our house doesn’t have much carpet even with our latest carpet installation so these help keep my keep comfy and warm all the time! They aren’t your typical house shoe, these actually have a great sole & actually offer support unlike the less expensive versions!
What are some of the things you splurge on as a mama? It’s okay to save and spend a little extra if it makes you happier, which in turn makes you a happier, better mama!
