Motivated Moms Membership Review by Jennifer Miller

Susan Cramer
Motivated Moms

The program currently costs $12.00 per year. 

The main part of Motivated Moms Membership is the editable mobile app of the same name. App purchase includes optional membership in their Facebook group. Membership also includes access to a pdf library of printables that match the app. There are sixteen versions of their printable planner!

The app groups items on each day’s list into daily chores and today’s tasks. Daily chores are repeated, often daily. Today’s tasks change each day, and when completed help you.... toward a more clean and organized home and life. Tasks can be assigned to specific people and even categorized by specific rooms. A square to be checked off is provided by each task. Once clicked, the completed tasks are moved to the bottom of the list, still visible but in a lighter color font. 

Obey an app to clean your house and do chores! Do you forget daily tasks such as take vitamins and medicine? This app will remind you. You can personalize everything on your list, such as changing “water indoor and outdoor plants” to “water petunias.” The possibilities for what you add to the list of tasks to check off is completely up to you. 

It takes a little time to learn things like how to delete a task for the day without deleting it from your list of tasks forever, but if you take the time to go through the guides provided, it becomes even easier to use. Things that are not explained initially (such as the recommended daily Bible readings being January 1st no matter what day you begin using the app) can be answered in the Facebook group. 

I recommend this to moms who enjoy the satisfaction of checking off completed items and to moms who need a new system of organization.
