Savings for Mommas, Babies & Kiddos (and sometimes Dads too!)

In my search for deal sites, I have come across a few that are specifically for babies, kids and moms.  Yes, occasionally there is a Diaper Dude bag thrown in for the dads too.  There are new sales almost daily, and most sales last around 5 days.  These sites are a great place to find the more expensive baby items and clothes at a great discount.  Also great for baby shower gifts!  Here is my Rundown for these deal sites:

Right now they have some adorable diaper bags from Sugar Booger originally $78 on sale for $28!
Diaper Bag (l) and Weekender Bag (r)
They also have a sale for Silly Soles that includes fun shoes, bibs, socks and shirts.  My favorite shirt says "Big Sister AKA The Divine Ruler" - so appropriate.  And for the little man in your life, Cutie Pie Kids has fedoras and elastic neck ties.

Totsy's other current sales include Pearhead (nursery/room decor, frames, photo albums, etc), Mr Men Little Miss (blankets, socks, etc), Aacua (4-in-1 towel - love this idea!), Just Born nursery blankets and crib sets, Dynamic Rugs, Bright Bots Boys & Girls clothes, Little Soles shoes, and some special treats from Fannie May Candy and The Popcorn Factory.

The Mini Social 
Offers hip and modern designer brands.  Currently you can find Simple Shoes for kids and women, Estella, minimink, Sustainable Kids, Hank Player, Blueberry Hill hats, Petunia Picklebottom (diaper bags, slings, crib bedding, etc), and more.
Petunia Picklebottom Sling Was $71, Now$35 
Lil Luxe
Maybe my least favorite site of the three, but it's not to say they still don't have some good deals.  This would probably be where to splurge on more expensive items.  Right now their sales include Bumkins (diaper bags, bibs, etc),  Island Buddies gecko necklaces, Koala Kuddles swaddles, Green Sproutlets, Lollipop Tots, Bebe Bella Designs (super soft blankets and more) and Kicokids.
Bebe Bella Lime Paisley Toddler Blanket $39

ideeli sales and giveaway

In addition to the group buying sites that are included in my Daily Rundown, there are also daily deal sites that offer major discounts on a huge range of items that quite often include designer name clothes for men, women and children.

One such site is ideeli which you can join by invitation only.  Here, I'm inviting you now :)  This is what the ideeli site is all about:
"deeli is the fastest-growing online members-only shopping site in the U.S. Our 3 million members enjoy limited-time sales featuring the most sought-after brands across the categories of apparel, accessories, home, beauty, travel and kids. Each event is designed by ideeli editors to offer an exclusive shopping opportunity with new brands featured each day at up to 80% off."

The sales going on right now at ideeli are numerous.  So much in fact that I can't even pick any examples to share, but I will throw out names.    Like Kenneth Cole Reaction, Emilio Pucci, bcbgeneration, Nine West, Tarte, Orion London, and Cafe Bleu.  And did I mention they have a section for all things WEDDING?!  The dresses, and their prices, are amazing.  Amazing!!  Where were these deals when I got married??

In addition to great sales, they also have some great giveaways!  The "put a ring on it" giveaway (great name!) will be over Friday at 2pm, so be sure to sign up and enter.  They are giving away this gorgeous Judith Ripka Diamond Anniversary Ring.

Be warned: this site may be hazardous to your credit card!
