Advertisements My Favorite Online Shop

I intend on posting reviews and comparisons on Tuesdays, but here I am, about to click over to Wednesday, and only just posting for the day. For shame. (I didn’t get my usual hour and a half before Elliott wakes up, and I didn’t get a solid chunk of time at all today, hence the late-night posting.) Rather than rush a review (I like to take my time and be thorough), I’d rather shamelessly promote a mommy-centric website. You can relax in knowing that they’ve not paid me a nickel, nor provided any products or services in exchange for my featuring them; I just really like their site and how they’re screen capture

If you’ve got young children (or know someone who has young children) and enjoy shopping online, get thee to Run by a work-at-home mom and staffed by several other mommies, sells mom-invented products at incredible prices and with free shipping in the continental US (no minimum order). Typically I prefer to support local brick-and-mortar businesses, but after a few instances of less-than-decent service at our local mom-shop, I didn’t feel badly about taking my business online and supporting the women behind They have an amazing selection of innovative products, and they’ve never been sold out of anything that I’ve wanted. The shipping is fast, and the one time I had to return something (I ordered the wrong size) the process was quick and easy.

If free shipping isn’t enough to motivate you, sign up on their email list and receive 5% off every order. To sweeten the deal even more, every order above $30.00 includes a free mom4life minty lip balm made from natural ingredients– no crazy chemicals I can’t pronounce, just sunflower oil, coconut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, vitamin E and  peppermint oil. I like it better than my expensive Burt’s Bees lip balm.

I’ve purchased every nursing tank top I own from mom4life, plus two nursing bras and two pairs of leggings for Ellie. It might sound weird, but I actually look forward to the next time I get to purchase from them because after reading their story, I know I’m supporting a wonderful group of women and not just giving my dollars to Amazon or Walmart. And if you visit their “giving back” page, you’ll see a list of all of the charities and organizations they donate to. Amazing. Finally, you can follow mom4life on Twitter (if you do the twitter thing) here:

Where do you buy your mama-gear? Do you have a favorite “mom and pop” type place that you like to support? As always, sharing is caring, so tell me all about it in the comments below.
