Throughout history homemakers have appreciated tools that help to lighten their load. A glance back at the past shows what a big difference electric appliances have made to the housewife; conveniences that we are so used to now that we rarely even stop to think about them.
In our current culture we are not only blessed with our electronic servants, but we have a host of digital ones at our fingertips as well. As a busy, technology loving, homeschooling mother of a large family I have found these digital tools to be huge helps and time savers in juggling all of my many responsibilities.
With my handy dandy, trusty iPhone and laptop at my side I can organize recipes, plan my children’s education, assign lessons, create chore lists, educate myself, work my home business, organize my days, take and save pictures, shop for almost all of my family’s needs (including food), manage our finances, capture memories, communicate with others, read or listen to books, look at my calendar…the list goes on.
It can be overwhelming to know exactly where to begin when it comes to the digital world. What devices do we need? What apps do we use? What is useful? What isn’t? How do we set it all up?
I thought I would share with you what I have learned over the years through lots of trial and error. Here is where I will write about many of my favorite digital resources including devices, apps, tips, hacks, websites, educational and homeschool helps, software and more.
I ‘ll also be collecting links here to some of my favorite posts on digital tools from other bloggers that have been hugely helpful to me.
I’d love to hear from you as well! If you have a favorite app, or program, or are a fellow technology loving homemaker and would like to write a guest post on this topic please leave a comment or drop me a line.
