Arin said that she has one doorbell button for each of her four children, which she keeps in a kitchen closet.
They have doorbells in each of their rooms, so she can ring each bell to let them know when they’re needed, instead of shouting upstairs. She also uses them in the morning perfect for school runs.
She said, “There has never been a better mom hack. These small $15 doorbells have made our home so much more pleasant!”
Other brilliant hacks have surfaced online, including an amazing trick for checking if jeans fit without trying them on.

One shared, “We bought a bell at a thrift store for five dollars. Best five dollars I’ve ever spent. They all come running when I ring the bell.😂”
Another amazed parent gushed, “Yes! We have one in the basement playroom and we keep the remote upstairs. Game changer!”
