Bargain Buys For Busy Mums – When you have children life gets there is no arguing with that. Whether it’s nappies, clothes and toys for the smallest of children or Playstations, school uniforms and pocket money for the oldest – you’re guaranteed to wonder where all your money suddenly goes. Being a parent should come with a built in bargain radar but unfortunately it doesn’t so if you want the best deals you need to hunt for them. Luckily there is a website and Facebook group that will do that for you!
Bargain Buys For Busy Mums (or BBFBM) is your one-stop-shop for your child inspired bargains. Originally a Facebook group set up in 2013, BBFBM branched out to a website shortly after as a way to deliver the best buys even to those who don’t use Facebook. Now at over 300,000 members strong, BBFBM make it so easy to find a great bargain.
The website is really easy to use, with separate categories for specific items or the option to browse by retailer – it makes browsing feel a breeze. Everything from fashion, toys and books right up to cooking, arts and crafts, and wedding essentials is covered so you’re bound to find something you need. If you’re not sure what you actually want to buy, then you can scroll through to get ideas and see what kind of a deal is offered. If you know exactly what you are looking for then you can pop it into the search bar at the top of the page and see if there is an offer for it. The list of companies they work with include Argos, Smyths, Amazon, eBay, Boots and The Entertainer.
The Facebook group is where it all started so there are additional perks to being in the group such as the bargain of the day and first looks at the up and coming giveaways. There is also a daily “bargain alert” email which tells you about the six best bargains that day. There is no requirement to be part of the Facebook group and you can use the site simply for the bargains, but being part of group means you have access to additional offers, voucher codes, website glitches and other ways to save money. The Facebook is well managed with clear rules and friendly admins who are always happy to help – there is also little spam that makes it through which itself is an achievement for the team working hard in the background.
On top of regular bargains, the team behind BBFBM check the cost of nappies on a daily basis so when you need to top up, you know exactly where the best value ones are going to be. All of the most popular brands are compared such as Pampers, Huggies, Aldi’s Mammia and other supermarket brands. The results are displayed in cost per nappy as well as the pack size, the total cost and where to buy it from (with a link) – you can also filter by the nappy size you need.
As well as finding you the best bargains each day, you have the chance to grab some freebies and to enter the free prize draw. The freebies vary depending on what’s on offer and the free prize draw is easy to enter simply by subscribing to their newsletter – some of the prizes that have been given away of the year have included A Mother’s Day bouquet, £100 towards a family meal out for Father’s Day, a HUGE Easter Hamper and other cash prizes.
