No doubt when you have kids, you need to maximize your time. These favorite time saving home tools are saving me cleaning time and giving me more time to relax and keep life in balance.
We need to help the kids with homework, have fun with them, and they eat a lot! It feels like I am either cleaning or getting my kids something to eat for the majority of my day.
These time saving home tools have helped me streamline, reach balance in my days, and they are just so handy!
Time Saving Home Tools We All Need in Our Homes
Cordless Stick Vacuum
Crumbs. Every meal results in crumbs on the floor. The dogs track in bits of grass and dirt. I can not stand the feeling of crumbs and dust under my feet. How about you?
My former neighbor told me about this amazing vacuum. Then my mom’s neighbor did too. I held out but I should have gotten it right away! I love it.
The cordless stick vacuum is so handy and saves me cleaning time.
I can grab it, quickly clean up crumbs….or better yet ask the kids to vacuum. 😊
The older kids do have to vacuum and steam mop their own rooms, so the rechargeable stick vacuum makes that task very manageable for them. Less work for mom really saves time!
I should have gotten one sooner. It is worth every penny.
Depending on your budget there are options too. I went with the Dyson V5.
The Dyson V5 and Dyson V7 were the only options for cordless vacuums at our local base store. My mom uses the Shark cordless stick vacuum. I have used hers too. It is great.
Big Meals Can Equal Big Drips Until the Multi-Tool Utensil Rest
Cooking multi-pot meals or even soups and stews can result in drips and gunk on the counters. Plus where do you put all those spoons and spatulas to keep some counter space clear? Time saving home tools that ease the cooking process are perfect.
The silicone multi-tool utensil rest from Zulay Kitchen keeps drips in one place. It has room for multiple spatulas and spoons. Genius!
When I made spaghetti and meatballs the Zulay Kitchen utensil rest was perfect for containing the mess so I could clean up quicker. It is available in multiple color options too.
Zulay Kitchen Milk Boss Electric Milk Frother: Morning Coffee Just Got Fancy
I don’t know about you, but I look forward to my morning cup of coffee. The kids usually watch a show in the morning and it gives me a little time to settle into the day.
(Having school age kids that do give me a little time to drink my cup of coffee is a great perk! Hang in there moms of toddlers. It gets better!)
The Milk Boss Milk Frother seemed like a fancy gadget I just did not need-until I tried it!
Every morning I can make a coffee house tasting cup in minutes. I froth my coconut milk, collagen powder and honey together. Then I pour in my hot coffee. Quiet time in a cup…or two. 😉
The milk frother is great for mixing up the kids hot chocolate or flavored milk so there are no lumps too. They love that and it makes mixing and stirring in small batches fast!
These are my current favorite time-saving home tools. They are definitely cutting time off of tasks I do every day and making more time for balance with the family.

Thanks for these tips, I love homeschooling my children during the preschool years but having had my career before having children I’ve little experience of looking after the house etc so this is really helpful to give me time to focus on what I love doing x
