Great gadgets for the tech-savvy mom
Being a mom can be tough, but that doesn’t mean there’s not help out there in the form of the useful gadgets. From printers and cameras for capturing life’s moments, to baby monitors and more, technology has the potential to make the work of a mom a lot easier.
Whether your kids are young or older, a whole mess of devices are available that can help in a number of ways. And, with so many options, finding the right prices on those devices is just a matter of keeping an eye out for great deals, and finding items that fit your needs and your budget.
For young kids and old: Determining what gadgets are right for any mom often starts with a little information about her kids: Are they young or older? Young kids have gadget requirements all their own – things like baby monitors or video units that can broadcast to items such as smartphones, tablets or computers.
You can find just about any gadgets for taking care of babies and young kids at retailers such as Babies R Us (which offers as much as 1 percent cash back), Best Buy, Walmart (which both offer 2 percent cash back) or Radio Shack (which offers 3 percent).
If your kids are older, consider checking into mobile devices such as an Android tablet or an iPad. These items can pull double-duty – providing fun and entertainment (as well as education) through apps for kids, while also supporting techno-help for moms with apps that allow for video monitoring of kids and more. Most of the above retailers offer them, and you can also check out Apple (with a 1 percent cash back offering) or Target (2 percent cash back), or your favorite cellular provider: AT&T and Sprint offer up to $50 cash back.
Capturing memories: Mobile devices also double as cameras, which makes them exceedingly handy for capturing all those key life moments as they happen. Other useful devices include digital cameras and photo printers that can help immortalize those moments and make them easily sharable, both in digital form and with hard copies. Try the above retailers for great deals on items that can help you immortalize your favorite moments as your kids grow up.
