    It is no secret I love a good deal..and I also love way to re-purpose and re-use items..

    I am all for a little upcycling DIY…

    When you don’t have to buy new why would you? It’s a win for your pocket book and a win for our planet.

    This is why I love Minitrade a new website designed for parents that sells new and once loved brands for up to 70% off retail…


    I wish this site was around last year when I was doing My Familes Stuff Diet…

    The inspiration for came from ‘Mompreneur’ Isabelle Doucet, who, like many parents, didn’t want to sacrifice quality or style when dressing her own quickly-growing little ones.

    It’s a great place to find all the extra things you need that your kids lose at school or get worn so quickly.

    There is never an Off Season on Minitrade. You can find all your summer clothes for vacation during the winter and save money doing it.

    If your New Years resolution is to save money and get organized…You can do them both with this site.
