Online Shopping Tips from a Frugal (Cheap) Mom.

I'm frugal (some would say I'm cheap- hence "Cheap Mama Chick" ;) but, I love for my kids to have quality, lasting items including their toys, shoes, clothing and food items. I also keep in mind the great resale values (minus the organic food of course) of buying  those items. I thought it would be fun to share a few quick tips for finding some of these items at more affordable prices.

-"Daily Deal" Sites

The online world is booming with "daily deal" type sites (examples EversavePlum DistrictMamapedia). These sites usually sell "vouchers" worth a certain amount for 50% off (for example $15 for $30 worth of name brand toys from Mamapedia today)). If it's a store I know carries an item we use, I usually buy it, if it's a store that carries organic snacks we eat, I buy it (places that carry organic food like EcoMom and Abe's Market show up quite often). For example, currently we're seeing an awesome 50% off deal on name brand clothing from Jilly Bo Billy through Plum District, score (don't forget the resale value in brands like these)! 

-"Flash Sale" Sites

Another big one- "Flash sale" sites including places like MyHabit (Amazon's flash site)TotsyZulily and Gilt just to name a few. These sites cater towards babies, kids, name brand items. You can find practically any of your favorite brands at one time or another from these sites. Brands like Skip Hop, Zutano, Haba, Melissa & Doug, Calvin Klein, Aden & Anias at 30% off or more (don't forget resale, resale, resale!). Stalk these sites! My advice for sites like these is to shop ahead, often times the shipping time is longer normal, but usually worth the wait!

- Amazon

Those who follow my site know how I heart Amazon. I'm not a fan of going to the mall, I hate lines, I love having the big brown truck drop of my purchases at my doorstep- easy, peasy (and saving gas always helps, too!)! My biggest tips for Amazon check their daily lists- the "Mover's & Shaker's" list is one of my favs. They list the top sellers for the last 24 hours, most often these items have great prices drops- which is the reason they are top sellers! Amazon's Warehouse and Organic food sections can be gold mines for a great food deals. For example today were seeing organic baby "squeeze" foods for as low as $0.81 each (shipping included), can't beat that! Amazon also has some other hidden gems such as free Kindle books for children, these are new daily and you can build quite a library for free (you can download them to your PC, tablet or phone- you don't even need a Kindle!).

Many (if not most) of our toys have come from Craigslist. A quick search every few days can score you tons of good deals. I simply search "wooden toys", "Plan toys", "Melissa & Doug"- you get the idea. I do realize in smaller markets this is more difficult. I've even gone so far as to search a few key items we were looking for (wooden play kitchen, large ride on toys, bikes) in larger cities we plan on visiting in the near future, you never know some items might even constitute a fun road trip!

-Facebook & Twitter

Follow your favorite brands on Facebook and/or Twitter, brands like Babylegs (new deal every Friday), Magic Cabin (natural type toys) and Vitacost (they're even offering a free $10 credit right now good on brands like Califonia Bab & Seventh Generation!). They usually post their deals on Facebook or Twitter first! Follow "deal bloggers" on Facebook & Twitter- some of my favs.- Organic on the CheapOrganic Steals And DealsCheapMamaChick (wink, wink)- there are many!


Last but not least, my newest obsession- Reclip-it. Genius, why didn't I think of that! Search by categories, follow your favorites, look at all the pretty pictures, there is so much to do as far as deal searching here! I love being able to take a few minutes of my down time and scroll, scroll, scroll. I can see every deal with a bright clear image and click on those I'd like more information about. I've found so many fun deals in the short time Reclip-it has been around. This site is going to be the next "big deal" as far as helping moms, dads and families looking for the best items at the best price! Can't wait to watch it grow!
