DISCLAIMER: I am NO expert at “mommyhood” and I am still learning how to approach a lot of this whole mom business, daily fails included. These are just a few things I have found make my life better on the day to day basis. So when one of my favorite mommy brands Huggies approached me about sharing a killer promo code for diapers.com... I squealed a little and shouted YES!!! I hope $12 off your favorite Huggies Diapers makes you as excited as it does me.
1. Online Shopping (In this case Diaper Delivery)
I used to be so turned off to online shopping until I had a kid. Now I do all I can to avoid trips to the grocery store, Costco, or the mall unless I am riding solo… which rarely happens anymore.However, now I have found that use of promo codes, online ordering is not only the easier way to go… but often the cheaper way to go as well. Plus, when I do go to the store to get one pack of diapers I somehow leave with that and ten other items I didn’t really need costing me way more that had I not made the trip and ordered online.
As I fell head over hills for online shopping, Diapers.com quickly became one of my favorite sites for one stop shop.. have you been to their site yet? It is everything you’ll ever need from formula to car seats and strollers and of course if you haven’t guessed it: DIAPERS! They also offer FREE delivery which I love because I just don’t like paying for shipping.
It may not be a huge surprise that Huggies have easily taken the #1 Spot in my books for BEST DIAPER AWARD. I have tried almost every one out there and I just keep running back for Huggies… less mess, rare rashes, and affordable.
Huggies offers two tiers of diapers for active babies: the basic Snug and Dry and Little Movers Diapers.

2. A Paper Day Planner
This may sound totally “old school” like I am one of those weird ladies with there file fax and million sticky notes. I am sure most of you just use your phones these days, but I find I do better being organized if I actually write things down in my day planner. From appointments to meals to grocery lists..it all goes in there and it helps me stay organized. I may just be an extremely visual person but this REALLY helps me keep everyones schedules on track.
3. Have time set apart for your PIPSQUEAK
If your life is anything like mine, your always on the GO! Which a lot of the time means my poor little lady is in her car seat running to and fro and taking it like a champ! I like to set at least one day apart that is her day. In the past I have done a music & movement class, Library story times, or gone to 7 peaks with some other mom and tots. Whatever it is I try to make it more about her than about me. In the future I hope to do a mommy and me gymnastics or swim. She seems to be so much happier when we do something she loves and I love that we get to bond and have fun together too!
4. Meal Planning
Blah. blah. blah. You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again: MEAL PLANNING. Saves money and scales… that is extra pounds on the scale. I find that when I meal plan my family eats WAY healthier, we spend so much less and the flow in the house seems to go a bit more smooth because I have a plan. Start simple just 3 nights a week if your on the go. . I promise its worth it!
5. Naptime Clean Sweep
This is kind of silly but I like to set my kitchen timer for 10 min at the beginning of my Pipsqueaks nap and start in the kitchen cleaning all I can until the timer goes off and then I move to another room. I try to do 3 areas or 30 min and then take the rest of nap time to take a shower or whatever else I need to do. I find that sometimes the mess of a toddler overwhelms me and I can easily spend the whole 30 min in the kitchen but it becomes a game and I work a lot quicker and more efficiently when I time myself!
Though I am guessing I haven’t knocked your socks off with my tips I hope they are good reminders of how we can all feel like super moms on the toughest of days. I hope you will use the promo code WOWHUGGIES at Diapers.com and save that $12 on your diaper delivery. . that is a pretty awesome savings!
