There are deals out there so start your research. You can find deals on travel directly and you can find deals on other everyday stuff so you can save money to take the family vacation you want. Of course there is Groupon and LivingSocial and a few other players in that space.
If you want to save time and money, check out savings.com where they pull deals from all the others, offer their own exclusive deals AND have a team of Deal Pros to give you advice! You can set up a Personal Savings Assistant (with a free membership) so that you only get deals in the categories you choose. Watch for their Spotlight on Travel Savings.
Again, saves you time and money – perfect for busy moms.
