It’s doubtful that there’s anyone more tuned to bargain hunting than busy moms. Kids are expensive! As babies they require lots of diapers. They grow out of their clothes almost overnight. They need age appropriate toys and oh we almost forgot… you have to feed them too! As much as we love our little rug rats, they can be a constant outgoing cash flow. So when Groupon, LivingSocial and other daily deals sites started cropping up some very smart and innovative moms saw the perfect opportunity to start a business and help mothers just like themselves save on the things they and their children really need.
Daily deal sites are great but until recently there wasn’t much available that was truly for young families, specifically mothers and children. Restaurants and theater deals may be nice but just don’t cut it where moms with one or more little tykes in tow are concerned. This is where daily deal sites with a focus toward the needs of mothers and children are filling an important niche within the industry.
Here’s our list of just a few of the daily deal sites that are focusing on moms and kids and with the growing demand that group buying sites offer more relevant deals, there’s sure to be more to come.
