From 1985-1992, the TV show MacGyver proved episode after episode that you could save the world with a paperclip and some string. The show was successful enough that in 2016- the TV powers that be decided it deserved a reboot.
Moms can relate to old Angus MacGyver, can't we? How many times have you been caught in the rain with nothing but a grocery bag? How many times have you fashioned some kind of emergency meal from 3 things left in your pantry and fridge?
Let's face it- Mac was a physicist. Moms don't need physics- they need motivation. A screaming child is the best motivation to create, isn't it? Necessity is the mother of invention- as the saying goes.
The story of MacGyver left such an impact on so many generations, MacGyver became a verb. The Oxford Dictionary defines "macgyver" as:
Informal: Make or repair (an object) in an improvised or inventive way, making use of whatever items are at hand.
-‘he MacGyvered a makeshift jack with a log’
-‘he has a shock of short red hair and a pair of rectangular-framed glasses MacGyvered with duct tape’
And Urban Dictionary says: "Someone who can jump-start a truck with a cactus."
MommyGyver strives to find life hacks, creative ideas, and fun activities for the real world- save my ass situation.
So next time, you can ask yourself- "What would MommyGyver do?"
MommyGyver also reviews products that interest moms in the mom role, moms as women, and moms as the bad-ass home handling, job having, powerhouses that they are.
Last, MommyGyver investigates and exposes companies that target women.
MommyGyver has built a reputation for being direct, brutally honest, and at times, a little crass.
Always cheeky, but always truthful...

Stepmother of one.
My husband laughs at me because between meals, I'm the mom running around with a drill in one hand and food coloring in the other. My favorite phrase is- "I can make that!"
And maybe I can help you a bit too.
