About Us

Welcome to Seattle Moms Deal Finder! We are two Seattle area sisters, Esther & Jennifer, who are frugal but fancy, thrifty and thorough, and always found shopping the sales.  We are devoted Mothers to our children.  We both have two children, and our households are busy and exciting. Our husbands are hard working and supportive, and are always encouraged by the money we save.  We hope you enjoy our site!

Dooby, Dooby, Moo by Doreen Cronin makes me laugh every time!  It must be read with an exuberance of expression!

Tell us why you blog?
To share the discounts!  I'm baffled when friends tell me they paid full price for something I know you can purchase at a bargain.  I'm a teacher at heart, and I love helping others learn.

About Jen

What is your favorite children's book?
My favorite could be "The Going to Bed Book" by Sandra Boynton. My son has loved it since he was a baby so there are many special memories attached to it. We also really love the Little Critter series!
What is your favorite children's clothing brand?
Right now, I am really into Mini Boden. The clothing is sturdy and can withstand my son's active lifestyle. Plus, it's super adorable and doesn't look like all the other boy clothes out there.
Do you have a favorite Seattle memory?
My husband and I previously lived on Capitol Hill and I loved the neighborhood. Eating at the amazing restaurants and going for long walks in the evening, dreaming about living in one of the beautiful, huge houses with the most incredible gardens... I love Capitol Hill!
What is your favorite thing to do in the Seattle area?
I love visiting the local Farmer's Markets, enjoying a fabulous cup of coffee and discovering new parks and beaches with my family. A good walk around Greenlake is pretty awesome too.

Tell us why you blog?
I love finding deals! And I love sharing them. I know we all work hard for our money and I like knowing that our site is helping some of us moms save a little money on the things we love. I've always liked nice things, but never for full price. I like finding an item I love in a store, and taking on the challenge of doing some research and finding the best possible deal on that item.
