Best Time Saving Home Products for Busy Women
Instant pot and accessories
As a busy woman, nothing has saved me more time than my Instant Pot! I’m often asked if an Instant Pot is really worth the price and lives up to the hype, and my answer is YES!
In it, you can easily cook food faster and without a lot of prep. I often cook frozen chicken, throw in a marinade on top, and in 30 minutes or so, a delicious dinner is on the table. Plus, it’s perfect for meal prep, feeding a crowd on a budget, and for easily preparing large quantities of food.
Also, there are many accessories that make this stellar product even better. For example, the steamer basket helps cooks potatoes quickly at volume, which is perfect for holiday mashed potatoes.

As a child, my grandma, had a handheld floor sweeper she would use daily. It was lightweight and easy to use when a few crumbs had spilled on the floor, but a full vacuum was not necessary. I loved it so much, that I was crushed to learn as an adult those genius sweepers were no longer around.
However, I was elated to find the Shark Floor Sweeper! It’s an electronic sweeper that plugs into the wall for easy use. When you need it, simply grab it, sweep, and return it to charge. As a busy woman, it’s saved the day when my kids crushed food into the carpet and I need a quick solution to pick it up. And it’s quiet enough to use when the babies are sleeping, but the floor needs a touch up.
Here’s an honest confession: laundry is my nemesis. While I have no problem putting the clothes in the laundry, my hang-up comes with putting them away in a timely manner. Truthfully, for years this homemaking task paralyzed me and it was not uncommon for us to live out of laundry baskets until those clothes were dirty again. (Embarrassing, I know!)
As you can imagine, ironing wasn’t my strong suit either. There’s something about lugging out the giant ironing board and the time that it takes to iron each clothing item that I loathe. Really, I’d rather do anything else than iron. Interestingly, I despise wearing wrinkly clothes or having my kids where clothing that looks as though it was plucked from my bedroom floor (even if it was!).
What a joy to discover a hand held steamer! Finally, there was a fast method to de-wrinkling our clothes that didn’t involve an iron! Since discovering these years ago, I have never looked back. A handheld steamer is one of my favorite time saving home products for busy women!

I received this Angry Mama microwave cleaner as a gift last Christmas and love it! Honestly, the microwave is an easy place to dirty but tricky to clean.

While this invention may not shave minutes off your day, it will save your sanity and your groceries at the same time.

Alexa and Echo
Call me crazy, but I simply didn’t think we needed an Alexa or home management system in our life. When they first came on the market, I thought they were silly and frivilous. Now, I think they are genius and a must have for every home!
Alexa helps me manage my home hands free. With a simple voice command, she will add items to my Amazon shopping list, find the weather, help with a tricky homework problem, play my favorite podcast, allows me to brain dump my to-do list, and so many other things!
