Use Your Technology in A New Way at Home

Find ways to use your technology to make life easier at home by using some tricks from work. Most people who have smart phones for work are used to using the phones to text and have video conferences.  The phones are seen as part of their lives and as a way to communicate better with everyone in the workplace. Those same communication, time-saving, and efficiency tools make life easier at home.

We live in a three-story house. When my oldest daughter is home from college she spends a lot of time when she is not out and about in her room. Before smart phones, we were forced to yell up the stairs or send one of her siblings up the steps to get her. It is a pain in the neck and LOUD. What we started doing is using our technology. Instead of sending a young sibling to get our oldest, we send a text message. She is 18 years old, so you know the phone is glued to her at all times!

  • These are great tips! I already use my phone on some level to keep track of certain events, etc, but I definitely need to utilize it more and put some of the tips to good use!

  • My kids are always texting me while they are home. I must admit that I do it as well. I also control our house alarm through my cell phone and love the convenience.

  • My 15 yr old calls me from her phone (in the house), lol. I laughed at your daughter texting. :)

  • It is amazing how much I use my phone. Hard to imagine life without it. It is funny how much we use our phones even in our house. Texting - Music - Reading - Game playing

  • Ha! I like how you use your smartphones at home. I can only imagine how much easier it must be. My son is very young right now so I won't be able to experience this benefit for a while, but I can see how I would have enjoyed this even when I was younger. :)

  • Only in the last couple of years have I really gotten into using my phone more. Really starting to get into the swing of things now ;)

  • I live by my Google calendar on my phone. I can add all of my work related events in one color and also have a shared calendar in another color for family events. As soon as an event, meeting, practice, or appointment is made, it goes into the family calendar.

  • I think that is hilarious that your son uses his phone to record the evidence against his sisters!!! I think kids should use technology as much as possible to make their lives better! It has made our lives so much better :)

    • Yes, he does record his tattles! In all fairness, he does warn them in advance he is going to record them.

  • Great ways to use the phones... I always seem to "get lost" in the stores and malls.

    • Oh my goodness. I did not even mention how many times I have called my teenager or my husband in a big store to find out where they were!

  • Yup we use our phones all the time in our house. Okay like A LOT! lol
