Saving Money via Moms Collaboration
Being a mom is expensive no matter which way you look at it, and, as we push into the holiday shopping season, that fact threatens to rear its ugly head more than ever before. Between coupon clipping and bargain hunting, you’re sure to save yourself a pretty penny, but the digital age has brought us another possibility: group purchasing in the name of deep discounts.
Made popular by the Groupon service that allows people to join forces in driving down prices, there are many new services that have something to offer a mom with savings on the brain! Check out these six tools for saving money by collaborating with other moms:
1. Family Finds: Family-Focused Goods
Family Finds is a simple service that gets right down to the business of saving you money by providing you with a daily deal on family-focused goods and services, always at prices that you won’t see anywhere else.
Based in the United States, Family Finds offers both local and national programs, meaning that you’ll have access to deals and coupons from both local family-owned stores and restaurants while also snagging deals at national chains.
Social coupon website Happier (currently in beta) takes things a step further as far as deals are concerned.
