Thanks to advancements in modern technology, we’ve become a society that just loves to play with high tech toys and gadgets. Today many of these gadgets can save either a husband or wife a lot of time doing menial tasks around their home such as cleaning or mopping a floor.
In today’s hectic world, a woman’s schedule can get out of hand. Between the commitments of a full time career, and sharing the responsibilities of running a household, a mom’s life can get pretty hectic.
And this is why it’s great to have a cool gadget or two around the house that not only make things easier on the busy couple, but also saves time in when doing the usual household chores.
For instance, in order to clean the expensive hardwood flooring installed throughout the house, simply turning on a small automatic vacuum cleaner to clean those expensive floors is a cool way to save time and eliminate a chore no one really wants to do.
There are lots of cool gadgets that are great moms on-the-go like the full line of I-Robot robotic cleaning units including the Roomba dirt cleaner and its companion the Scooba that washes floors.
Let’s take a look at a few gadgets that a busy mom will not only think are cool, but will also help her save time in innovative and fun ways.
The Smart Shopper
The Smart Shopper is a very cool gadget for the busy person who doesn’t have time to make out a grocery list. This gadget attaches to the refrigerator and just voice-records items that you’ve used between meals.
And when it’s time to take that trip to the grocery store, all you have to do is just hit print, and you and your shopping list are ready to go. The Smart Shopper is web friendly also. If you use a service such as Shop Rite from Home, just log in using Smart Shopper and place your order, get it delivered, and never leave the house.
This is a great gadget for the busy mom on the go. Amazon’s Kindle is still the number one portable handheld reading device worldwide, and with the new Kindle Fire, reading a book or browsing the web has never been cooler.
There’s a Kindle for any taste. From the Kindle Fire with its color touch screen to its cloud storage and the availability of some of the most popular apps today including Hulu Plus, Pandora and Netflix, to the Kindle DX with its 9.7 in display and free 3G wireless capability.
The Clocky Alarm on Wheels
For the busy mom who doesn’t have the time to get the kids out of bed because they keep hitting the snooze on the alarm clock, there’s the Clocky alarm clock. The Clocky could be the distant cousin to a certain Star Wars droid, with its persistent voice.
The Clocky alarm clock has the usual settings you’d expect from an alarm clock, but the wow factor comes from it actually jumping off a night stand and rolling around on the floor sounding it’s alarm until it’s turned off by someone, presumably the sleeper.
The Neat Organizer
Here’s a great gadget for the work-at-home mom. Organizing a home office can be a daunting task sometimes, especially if that office is cluttered with business cards and other business documents lying all over that small space taking up valuable real estate in the process.
The Neat Organizer is offered in two different device styles. There is a Neat desk and a more portable Neat digital scanner. There are versions for Mac and PC users and either OS system will do the job of helping you quickly organize your important documents and business cards into searchable files that you can easily find for quick reference on your desktop or laptop, simply by typing in keywords to help find the documents you’re searching for.
These are just a few of the types of tech toys and gadgets that are designed to either entertain or help a busy couple do things around the home that’s usually very time consuming, and not a lot of fun to do into something that can be done quickly and easily by a cool electronic device.
