Mothers always wear numerous hats; the many roles a mother may play on a given day include teacher, nurse, cook, librarian, maid, etc. With that much work to do, a mother should be compensated well. However, that is not always the case. If only hugs, kisses and love could pay for a new wardrobe for moms.
Looking stylish is certainly not the first thing on a mother’s ever-buzzing mind, especially when finding time to just take a shower, get dependent little ones ready, attend children’s extracurricular events, and prepare a meal, let alone shop and maintain a chic wardrobe, seem unattainable. Keep in mind that taking the time to look nice boosts one’s self-confidence, which the kids pick up on and emulate. We want children to see a mother in control of all areas of her life, including her appearance. Don’t feel selfish for spending a little time and a little money to update your look. Don’t lose your identity because you are a mother of little ones, or big ones off at an expensive college that mom and dad are forking over a pretty penny to pay for. Remember that you deserve new things once in awhile too! Those old t-shirts and holey jeans from your college days can be saved for work clothes, but regain your dignity and look the part of a lovely momma! It may seem like only a superhuman mother could look stylish on top of accomplishing her many duties as a mother, but it is possible, and here is how!
Searching online for coupons and promo codes before clicking “confirm” on a purchase is imperative. Why pay full price when your friend Mr. Google can jump in and save some of your hard-earned money? Signing up for store emails and text messages can give you access to savings you wouldn’t otherwise know about. If you have time while baby is napping or after you tuck the kids into bed, seek out those deals! Moneysavingmom.com is one of many websites for moms, by moms, that offers you the scoop on great deals. American Eagle Outfitters offer coupons and Forever 21 are a few quality stores where you can net some steep savings using discount codes!
Not to mention, you’ll be the trendiest mom around, and the most financially savvy! A mother’s time is precious, and rarely her own, such is the case for those ranging from stay-at-home mother to full time working mother. That’s where online shopping takes center stage as a real time saver for all of you hard-working mommas!
Don’t be afraid to put in a little, or a lot, of elbow grease to reap some serious savings. If you find some statement pieces at beautiful prices, you’ll get compliments on your looks and your husband will give you compliments on your budgeting. It’s a win-win! It’s time for you to look the part of teacher, nurse, cook, librarian, maid, etc., but without the scrubs and chef hat. Find those deals on designer duds and don’t feel guilty or penniless! You are worth it. Now go find your new look and surprise your family with how put-together you can look beyond those yoga pants!
