When I was introduced to my first Intel tablet last year, I was blown away by everything it could do and how fast it could do it! I am super lucky to have had the opportunity to upgrade my Acer Iconia Tab 7 with an Acer Iconia Tab 8 this year. Intel Tablets are fast and programmed to do anything you can possibly imagine with a mobile device. My upgraded Intel tablet is no exception. Here’s how my Intel tablet helps me around my home in every way, from staying organized to staying sane.
1. It’s a Mobile Cookbook
My Acer Iconia Tab 8 helps me quickly search for recipes for meals for my family, and works as a mobile cookbook that I can keep right in the kitchen with me. Propped up near the stove, I can read the recipe as I go without a big, bulky book to stand in my way.
2. Quickly Look Up Household Tips
Need to find easy ways to unclog a drain? Find out the best ways for bug-proofing your home in the summer months? Intel Tablets to the rescue! I search for helpful household tips on my Intel tablet all the time. It’s like a home improvement manual right at my fingertips.
3. Reading & Entertainment
With its awesome Google Play store, I have a seemingly never-ending variety of games and reading material to choose from when I have some downtime on the weekends or evenings after work. Instead of tons of books and magazines cluttering my home, I can have my favorite reads organized on my Intel tablet for quick access.
4. Catch the Daily News
I rarely get time to sit and watch the news on TV. The most convenient way for me to catch up for the day is by reading news websites or articles on apps on my Intel tablet as I’m waiting for dinner to cook or after I get the kids in bed for the night. There are so many great news apps and Intel makes websites load so quickly. Couldn’t be any simpler.
5. Shopping Lists
I love organizing my shopping lists on my Intel device. Rather than keeping my lists on random papers (that I always forget to bring with me!), I can type everything I need into the note app on my Acer Iconia Tab 8. As I shop, I delete the things on my list. Everything is right at my fingertips using my tablet so I can quickly add things at home as I think of them too.
6. Plan Weekend Activities
My daughter joins me in planning our fun weekend activities by searching on my Intel tablet. A quick search of area events and activities gives us new ideas and we can bookmark things we want to do at a later time.
7. Organizing My Life
My Intel tablet is like my calendar, address book, and organizer all in one. I can remind myself of my kids’ school events, activities, and appointments, friends’ and families’ birthdays, etc. My memory lately is a lost cause; without my Intel tablet reminding me of important things, I’d be totally lost!
8. Find Awesome DIY Projects
I always am searching for DIY projects for around the home and in my preschool classroom. I love the convenience of quickly looking up projects as I think of them on my tablet. I use the Pinterest app to save ideas for later on the tablet, and then I can use the tablet to search online for the materials I need to buy.
9. Organizing and Paying Bills
Bills are no fun, but at least I can make the process easier on myself using my Intel tablet. I can remind myself of bill due dates and utilize bill-pay apps to schedule and pay the bills even when I am away from home. I can even conveniently check my bank account right from my device.
10. Taking a ‘Mom Break’
While I don’t condone the use of technology as a babysitter, I certainly find it acceptable to use for a few minutes for me to catch a break. I put on an educational, fun app and the kids enjoy their techie play time. They get some entertainment, and I get a few minutes of sanity back in my life. Thanks, Intel!
