I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve dropped my phone while trying to juggle way too many things in my hands — my keys, my coffee, stuff the kids asked me to carry, my purse, someone’s coat (not usually mine) and goodness knows what else. Two hands aren’t nearly enough when you’re a mom and, if you’re like me, there’s no way you can tuck your phone into your bag, because it may be impossible to find it again in the depths of the black hole that is a mom bag. (That’s a story for another day.)
These phone cases are complete lifesavers for moms. While they won’t give you as many arms as an octopus, they will help lighten your load a bit, or at least make it a little more manageable as you don’t have to worry about dropping your phone.
For when you want to leave your purse behind
There are so many times when you just want to go purse-free, like a quick trip to the grocery store or heading out to the park with your kids, but by the time you bring your wallet and your keys and your phone and the stuffed animal your daughter insists she must have with her, your hands are full. The jimmyCASE has a handy elastic band on the back of the case so you can tuck just the essential there and be on your way. With the ability to hold up to six cards as well as cash, you can easily leave your wallet at home, making trips to the zoo or preschool field trips so much lighter.
For when you’re on the go, but need your phone
Whether you’re chasing toddlers or running errands, the fact of the matter is that as much as you’d like to tuck your phone away and enjoy the moment, sometimes you need to have it close at hand while you’re living your mom life. LoopyCase is a perfect solution. Just tuck your finger through the loop attached to the back of the case and you’re ready to go. It’s a simple solution that works so well you’ll wonder how you lived without a LoopyCase until now. (Image via @loopycases)
For when you’ve given up on carrying a wallet altogether
Products that serve more than one function are a total dream come true for moms. There is so much stuff that comes along with being a mom and having kids that’s simply unavoidable, so when you’re able to combine two things into one? Lifesaver. There are a lot of phone/wallet combos available, but I love the ones from Erin Condren Designs. Not only are the customizable, but they have a magnetic closure that makes it easy to get to your phone quickly, as well as slots for credit cards and a little pocket on the back to tuck receipts.
