There are many types of moms these days, and by types, I mean names for the type of mom you are (helicopter mom, free-range mom, tiger mom, etc). First of all, I think it’s silly to put a label on what type of mom we are, but society does it. So let’s play along.
I recently found an article over on Simply Most that talked about the 8 Types of Moms You’ll Meet at Target. It’s a great read and you should definitely check it out.
Here’s the 8 types of mom’s you will meet at Target:
1. The “I just need out of the house” mom
2. The coupon clipper mom
3. The “I’m late for a birthday party mom
4. The “I’d like to buy these empty wrappers” mom
5. The “I’m just here for the coffee” mom
6. The dollar bin diva mom
7. The bus driver mom
8. The “I escaped” mom
The author absolutely nailed it. At different times, I’m every single one of these! There have been countless trips where my kids needed snacks, so we ripped open those dollar cups of Teddy Grahams or Oreos. There have been many evenings when I just needed to escape from the family, to grab a decaf coffee at Starbucks and to browse the dollar bin by myself.
What Type of Mom Are You?
Expanding on the topic of “mom types,” I’d like to talk about the “mommy labels.”
Looking at the broad range of “mommy labels” that I’ve seen lately, I would call myself a “semi-ingredient-couscous mom” with a dash of “convenience mom.” I’m not 100% organic, GMO-free, free-range, free of everything… But, when I can (when it’s affordable and practical), I do seek out the better-for-you-brands, as long as they are already at the stores I shop at.
I Admit It. I’m a Convenience Mom!
I’m not into driving to five different stores with two kids in tow just to buy the best of the best products. That being said, if it’s not at Target or my favorite grocery store, forget about it! It’s exhausting and it just doesn’t make sense to waste an entire day driving around.
In previous articles, I’ve written about the different uses for baby wipes, while featuring WaterWipes and my love for them. They are chemical-free baby wipes soaked with only two ingredients: 99.9% pure Irish water and .01% grapefruit seed extract. What’s equally great is that they are available at Target and they don’t cost an arm and a leg.
We all want the best for our kids, but sometimes it’s just more convenient to go with the next best when it comes to products because of price and convenience.. I’m so happy that Target is fully stocking WaterWipes both online and in-store right now. In the past, I could only find them online, so this is huge!

I-C will randomly select winners from all program entries and will facilitate fulfillment of the winning prizes (5 winners). Contest ends August 18th. Use the entry form below to enter.
