5 car accessories for the work at home mom

As a work at home mom, you’ve managed to escape the daily commute, but the school run can be just as challenging. If you struggle to get the kids up and out each morning, this guide to 5 of the perfect car accessories could make your mornings run a little smoother. From backseat storage to how to keep the kids entertained, PassSmart are here to make sure you’ve got your morning sorted.

Hands free Bluetooth

If multi-tasking is your thing, a Bluetooth in-car headset could be just what you need. When you’ve got the kids in the back and rush hour traffic to contend with, talking on the phone can be riskier than you might think. A hands-free Bluetooth kit will make sure you keep your hands on the wheel whilst allowing you catch up on important business calls.

It might be best to keep the most important calls until after the drop off though, as we all know kids aren’t afraid to make noise, no matter who you’re on the phone too!


In-car storage units aren’t exactly exciting, but they’ll make getting the kids in and out of the car a whole lot easier. You can buy storage units online and in many retail outlets, and you’ll be surprised at how much space they’ll free up in the car.

We know how easy it is to just fling everything in the back, but having an organized car can shave minutes off the school run. Say goodbye to rifling around for the kids soccer boots in the trunk and make sure you know exactly where everything is!

Car seat covers

For times when breakfast is an on-the-go affair, seat covers will protect your upholstery. They’re great for longer trips with the kids, too, if they’re going to be eating, drawing and drinking back there. Instead of spending hours scrubbing strawberry jam off your seats, simply wipe clean, ready for the next inevitable spillage!

Car seat covers don’t have to be ugly. They come in a range of different designs, so you can even make a style statement with them too.

Air freshener

Your car goes through a lot, and whether it’s the smell of muddy sports kits, this morning’s breakfast or tonight’s dinner, the car is bound to need a bit of a freshen up. Air fresheners are cheap and offer a great solution to stale in-car smells.

You can buy them in a range of different fragrances, or you could even make your own with your favorite essential oils. Get the kids to help you, and you’ve got a creative Saturday afternoon sorted!

Backseat DVD

Backseat DVD players are fantastic for car journeys with the little ones. When you need the kids to quieten down, put it on and they’ll soon be entertained. Have some of their favorite DVDs in the car ready, and you’ll always be prepared.

In-car DVD players are best for long journeys, as they probably won’t want to be torn away from their favorite film when they reach the school gates!

What is Multi Level Marketing

Today’s Work at Home Mom is all about helping those who, Work from home.  More and more, every day I run across new businesses online, and new people who work from home.  I have many times been approached by people with the question ~ What is a Multi Level Marketing business, and why should I join one as a job?

Well, I figured since I am asked often that many of you are probably asked as well.  So, I decided to simplify it here so you can share this with anyone who asks you.

Multi Level Marketing ~

While not all MLM opportunities or companies are legit, there are many that are.  Anytime you see an opportunity that asks for money up front for nothing other than being a part of their business is a scam.  I am not talking about buying a kit or product or paying for a website, as those are legit.

Multi Level Marketing is simple and a good way to bring in extra money or an actual income full time.  All depends on your goals, how hard you work and how dedicated you are to growing your business.  If your company sells products, and recruits others to be in your team or downline who also sell products you are in an MLM. If your company is run by the more you recruit the more money you make, then you are in an MLM.  This keeps an endless supply of money for the company as their is always new recruits joining and selling.

Keep in mind that if you find a company that peaks your interest to check it out, and Google it.  You will find vast amounts of info on just about any company you are interested in.  Yes, it is true you will find good and bad info so you need to read it all and make an educated choice on if this company is right for you.

Any time you come across a business opportunity that asks you to pay to join, stay away.   Like I said before, this is aside from a consultant kit or a website hosting fee.

Being in a MLM company has many advantages and disadvantages.  I know people who make $5000 or more a month and people that make $0 a month.  It is all how you run it.    Don’t ever look at what others make, just work your business, for you.
