Post by Vanessa Quigley of Chapbooks
Vanessa Quigley is a mom of seven, wife, trained opera singer and most recently Chatbooker-in-Chief. Chatbooks’ affordable, automatic and simple photo books were Vanessa’s brainchild after realizing her youngest son didn’t have his own childhood scrapbook. So Vanessa’s the best person to give us a few of her favorite easy Mom Hacks.
Stop by our South Coast location this Saturday, November 5th, from 10 a.m.- 12 p.m. to meet Vanessa, learn more about ChatBooks and hear some of her favorite Mom Hacks! She’s sharing a few of her favorites below too.
- Instant Pot – Everyone needs one of these. it’s an electric pressure cooker, rice maker, crock pot all in one! And makes cooking super fast and easy. My favorite thing to make with it now is rice and beans. via A Pinch of Healthy
- Veggie bags – Chop a bunch of veggies when you get home from the grocery store and freeze in baggies. This makes vegetable omelets (among other things) a snap!
- Double batch EVERYTHING!! And freeze one batch for later. That way you always have a backup for when you are low on time or low on energy!
- Smoothie bags – Sock your freezer with premade smoothie bags. Instead of taking 5 bags out of the freezer when making a smoothie, you’ll only have to take out one! This saves me time in the mornings when I’m in a hurry and need breakfast on the go.
