POPSUGAR / paid for by / V8® +Energy

We partnered with V8® +Energy to share how real moms keep their lives running smoothly with ingenious, timesaving tricks.

There is no such thing as a perfect mom, but there are all types of GREAT moms out there — and they each have their own particular tips and tricks for making it work. One common theme: There is no shame in putting yourself first once in a while, or even on a regular basis. I talked to moms who do just that, and not only is there no judgment, I'm in awe of their smart moves!
