Bookmark These. Trust Me.

1.  Suri's Burn Book.

Her description:

Just because you don't have a Ferragamo handbag doesn't mean you can behave like a child. (I'm looking at you, Shiloh.)

Link here.

It is nothing short of brilliant.

2.  MODG

Super snarky self proclaimed party girl turned Mom writing about all sorts of fun stuff.  She does not disappoint.  Promise.

Link here.

3.  Flash sale sites. 

If you have never heard of these (think Groupon), put your kid in front of the TV with a pop tart and listen up.  There are fantastic deals to be bought.

My favorite for kid gear, baby gifts and for those of you into cute stuff for yourself.....that, too.  (It's no secret I buy most of mine from the 75% off Target rack.  I love a $6 sundress!)

Similar to Zulily.  Bought plenty from here, too.

Deals tailored to where you live.  Use this link and earn an automatic $5 to spend.  Love this one.

Similar to Living Social.  More "mom" focused.  Lots of spa stuff.

Like the two above.  I met these girls at Mama Fest in La Jolla.  They're totally devoted to finding great stuff in your city.

If you don't know what Groupon is, I can't help you.

Caroline loves this one.

There are 4 Woots:


Sometimes the deals have free shipping.  (Love that.)

Check out the Melissa and Doug deal in the link I provided.  Awesome!

Rue La La.

Coco loves this one.  She's into materialistic things like make up, perfume, clothes and jewelry.  I kid, I kid.  But, she is.  And, I'm not.  But, she likes it and always looks fantastic.  So, I believe that's as good as endorsement as you're gonna get.

Deal of the Day at Target.

Because you don't spend enough already when you go in.


Socially conscious products at great prices.  You may not want the coasters they're selling today.  Check back for other promotions for stuff like FreeWaters, who provides clean drinking water to those in need throughout the world.

Have I missed any?

Other tips:

1.  "Like" your favorite deal sites on Facebook to find easy access to deals.

2.  Seek out "home town" sites that are relevant to where you live.  Some are blogs.  Some are high powered websites.

San Diego favorites:

Around the Town

San Diego Deals and Steals

Google "coupons, deals, etc" in your city to find yours.  There are plenty of free resources.

I think that's enough for today.

  Let me know if you have a favorite site not mentioned here!

Yes! is good. I just signed up for that a few weeks ago.

Red Tricycle is good, too, for San Diego.

All the preppy bloggers are nutzo over RueLala.
Claire at BiCoastal turned me onto Suri too.
And.. I just sent you an email. Check out this blog. She lives in Aspen but is originally from NC -- one of my co-worker's friends from high school.

I JUST bought a dress yesterday from Robert Rodriguez, $300 dress for $79.
Love Modge.
And addicted to All of Bram's back to school clothes were purchased from there.
Good post.

Hahaha I blogged about Suri's Burn Book the other day . . . had me CRACKING UP!! OMG. I love that kid. And I also love those deal sites! Getting a massage on Saturday I bought on Juice in the City. :)

Great post! I just bought my first item from Zulily this week. It's a dress for Kamree that says, "My dad is a football fanatic!" I can't wait to surprise the hubby on the first football Saturday! I need to buy more stuff from there! I love Groupon too!

Deal of the day at Target? That would be the death of me, or my wallet. So same thing. Death.
