Have you ever gotten something that you didn’t know you needed but once you had it, you wondered how you’d been living without it?

We noticed certain items popping up over and over in our #Momforce by Chatbooks Facebook Group, and so we asked our awesome moms which specific products have changed their lives. The list was so helpful that we wanted to share these items since making moms lives easier is what we’re all about!

Sneak more veggies in with a chop wizard. This Vidalia Chop Wizard cuts up vegetables quickly, saving moms time in the kitchen, and is a brilliant tool for kids who aren’t big veggie eaters! One mom said, “I can get them to eat virtually any vegetable because of how small one of the Choppers chops.” This is definitely something that every mom needs in her life, especially when it comes to upping the ante on healthy eating.

“Alexa, make my life easier.” What did the world do before Amazon Alexa with her timer, music, and shopping list?! Moms loved setting a timer while cooking making hands free phone calls just by asking Alexa nicely (no passcode required!). Most of us were unaware of the fabulous shopping list feature until many moms posted about it. Simply tell Alexa when you are out of an ingredient and she will add it to your shopping list within the app. You’ll never forget your list again!  One #Momforce member went so far to say, “I can’t function without her!”

Simplify your kitchen life with an Instant Pot. The group absolutely lit up over the time-saving, crockpot-like lifesaver: the Instant Pot. Make dinner prep easier, and reduce kitchen cabinet clutter, with this multi-use programmable, pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, egg cooker, warmer, and sterilizer that you can also sauté and steam food in! Moms also pointed out that these go on mega-sale each Black Friday.

Don’t get tripped up with a cordless vacuum. Several people said that they absolutely cannot live without their cordless handheld vacuums, and this Bissell one was a crowd favorite. They’re great for a quick cleanup after meal time, and they’re so small and lightweight that even a toddler can help with the tidying up!

We hope these modern gadgets help make your life easier. Visit our group page and let us know what you can’t live without!
