Finding deals and buying second hand to help a mom save

So I am one of those people that do not go on a Facebook very often, so when I do go on, I spend a lot of time catching up. Man do I miss out on a lot of friends having kids. Anyways I did read one friends' New Years Resolutions and found it very interesting, which was to try to buy as much as possible second hand or at least try to get a good deal, of course this person is a mom. Any mom has probably bought or sold on Kiijji but I thought I would go one step further and search out some some other sites that were second hand or how to get the best deals online, so if other moms know of other sites out there please share.

Now I personally found this one amazing,  Trend Trunk, you can buy or sell designer clothes, handbags and more.  You can feel a little less guilty buying yourself something, instead of the kids.

If you have a groupon deals person already, have you tried Ethical Deals? That is right get great deals on ethically made or good for you products.

For current Deals that you can take advantage of:

Lego (an essential in my house). What has been great is having these lego books that my son will read and then recreate with his lego characters. Current deals with lego: Get a FREE city police helicopter with order of $35 dollars(check out the clearance page on the site too, some great deals)

Always remember, online is great for the clearance sections, and bundling it with free shipping times is always better, so you can save on the gas of going to a store too! Even WalMart has clearance blowout deals to get, so check it out.

When I find more deals I will make sure to post, because as a mom of two young boys, I know how important it is to save where you can.

Tomorrow I am working on posting my hilarious/ humiliating stories that I want to share for other mothers out there, so they too can look back and laugh at themselves now :) I hope it makes everyone laugh tomorrow.
