I've noticed since becoming a mommy that shopping is sooooo much easier online!

We talk about online shopping a lot in our PR. I think this board would be a huge hit.

We could post about deals we've gotten online, as well as sales coming up. The best places to buy diapers in bulk. Or the best places to buy baby clothes.

I have a lot of sites I frequent that make my life a lot easier! I bet other mommies have different sites that they could share too.

I know a lot of our mommies shop & sell in eBay. Maybe we could have a section devoted to tips on how to do this?

It would fit perfectly in the work & money section!

What does everyone think?

lizzy and I talked about this and feel we could really use and get behind a board like this....I am really getting into online purchasing as well as ebay shopping and selling...and would love to get a board going for this....

I really feel a lot of us women could benefit from a space to share ideas, hear about sales, find new places to shop, etc...this is really helpful to me because I'm a SAHM currently with no drivers license...LOL...

I'd love to see a place where I could talk with other women about the how's to's and where to score deals on baby items as well as household items!


Thanks so much for considering this!

Melissa

I'm all for this! Any mommy who spends as much time as some of us do on JM has got to frequent other sites, too! Why not share?

Yep, it definitely doesn't have to be all about baby stuff! I just heard about a new site to buy shoes that has free shipping to your house AND free shipping if you need to make a return! How cool is that! DH is gonna be REAL happy I have a new fast and easy way to buy shoes, LOL

I am definetly for this board. I do a lot of shopping online especially since becoming a mommy and I never would have thought to buy diapers in bulk online. I think this board would be a great place to share little tips like that. Yeah Lizzy and Melissa for coming up with the idea.

As a fellow online shopper (and bargain hunter) I think this is a GREAT idea! I'm always looking for deals & love sharing what I find with others.

I do the majority of my shopping online. It's just so much easier and I can get way better deals.

I do 98% of my shopping online, from clothes and knick knacks to my groceries. So I guess make that about 99% of my purchases are online and delivered direct. I have a ton of sites that offer free shipping that I utilize, and I would love to share my online know-how...as I did with the shoe place Lizzy is talking about above. I love to help a fellow girlfriend...
