Working Moms: Email Photos to Your Desk!

Since I have become a Working (Outside the Home) Mom, our family routines have been absolutely turned on their head.  I have found solutions, like Once A Month Cooking, and creative laundry solutions to cope with the change, and we’re taking each new challenge as it comes.

Once challenge that faced me AT work, was setting up and decorating my cubicle.  My new boss, when he interviewed me, asked how I would adapt to “cube life.”  He was understandably surprised when I said I was EXCITED about having a cube! Think of it– a place completely dedicated to work, where there is no laundry or dishes, where no children will put their toys on the desk, and a chair that… ahem… won’t serve as a clothes line in my room.  I can leave my work stuff in my cube, and I don’t have to clear it off the table so that a family can eat dinner there. #WIN

I really crave a clean, organized, uncluttered space at work.  But at the same time, I do want some evidence of a personal life. I want to feel connected to my family, and show them off to my coworkers.

I can’t choose just one photo of the family! They all have such diverse personalities, it’s just impossible.  So I wanted a wide representation of the kids, family and friends without clutter.

AT&T sent me the Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Frame for me to review, and let everyone know what I thought about it.

I absolutely loved this frame! Sometimes, companies will promise that products are “easy” or “plug and play,” and then you spend 2 hours setting it up.  Not this time! It was so easy to set it up, add photos, email photos, and set timers. Its very user friendly, good quality, and nice looking.

I constantly have coworkers stopping by my desk to look at the photos, and comment about how cool the frame is. And, hundreds of photos can be displayed with no clutter! Double win!

They say:

No WiFi. No Setup. No Problem.

Requiring no cables, no PC, and no complex WiFi setup, the Photo Mail Frame connects automatically to the AT&T Wireless network and is ready to receive your photos right out of the box. Simply Plug InTurn On and Enjoy!

I say: They’re right! I love that I don’t have to set up a wireless network.  I can bring the frame between home and work, and I don’t have to change the network. The photos are sent through the AT&T wireless network.

They say:

The Perfect Gift.

Give a Pandigital Photo Mail Digital Photo Frame to a friend or family member, and you can share life as it happens. Easily send photos directly to their Photo Mail Frame from your cellphone camera or through email – and a note will pop up right on their frame, letting them know that new pictures have arrived.  It really is that easy.

I say: They’re right! This frame would be perfect for a working mom or dad, grandparents, and just about anyone, really.  I would load some great photos of the kids, repackage the frame, and give it to the grandparents for Christmas! Then, I can update the frame anytime via email to keep them up to date.  It’s awesome, really.

They say:

Keep the fun going with additional Photo Mail Download Packages.

I say: This is the only feature that I would say is a concern before you buy.  You need to understand that there is a limited number of emails you can send to the frame for free. You then purchase additional Photo Mail Download Packages: 100, 400, or 700 photo emails. It makes sense, since it does use the AT&T network, but at least be aware of it.

Do you work outside the home? What is your workspace like? Do you have lots of pictures of your family there?

  1. It is an amazing picture frame that offers an opportunity to be in touch wit your family while you are at work. The thing that amazes me the most is that it has its own email address and photos can be mailed to it. Really a ‘touching’ photo frame!

    I know, Brandy! Now that my kids are at school, I know I couldn’t be with them anyway. But this summer is going to be REALLY hard, with not being able to things with them.

  3. I am such a neat freak Sarah, so this would work perfect. I have several pictures in my office at work, but I am always changing them up. This would be a great and easy way to do it. Thanks for sharing.

    Right, Cindy! My house is kind of cluttered with the “stuff” of five people, but it’s so nice to have a minimalist space at work.

  4. i believe that a healthy society needs one of the parents stay at home to educate, support and be as a model for the kids. and the mom or dad that stays at home will recive a nice pay from the government

    My desk is a mess, thanks for asking 🙂 I have a picture of my hubby on the desk – none of the kids because they are consistently sitting on my lap or climbing up me while I work, so no photo is necessary. That frame is a great idea – it would make a great gift for a family member who lives far away – I’m assuming that anyone could e-mail photos to it if you gave them access? That would be great!
