2011 is the year that my first child will start kindergarten. We have just 7 more months of no school schedules and nearly all day, every day together to do as we please.
Although I do enjoy some free time each week to work on the Mom’s Guide, run my errands alone and meet up with friends, the best part of any day for me is experiencing life with my kids. So my resolution, while not a new one, is to enjoy all of the time we have together as much as possible because come September, one little will be somewhere else much of the day and, before I know it, they both will be in school, then in college, then on their own.
I’m a mom who likes to be on the go, so 2011 will be more of the same. But thanks to the 10 -plus “daily deal” sites offering half priced sales on everything from movie theater tickets to annual memberships to museums, I’ll be doing more for less. In the past few months I’ve purchased a two-year Parent Connection membership for the price of one through Plum District. I bought a family membership to the Chula Vista Nature Center at a 53% discount through The Daily Save and two-for-one tickets to the Children’s Museum from Sign on San Diego’s Daily Deal.
I think I might need to make another resolution to print each voucher and take note of expiration dates because an unused deal is no deal at all. But I’m excited to see that this particular marketing technique continues to grow in San Diego for the benefit of moms on the go!
