Being a busy mom has its perks.
July 19th, 2011 | 11:29 AM
Being a busy mom has its perks. There’s never a dull moment. I get to carry around adorable organizational accessories. I can tell my husband to order dinner in because I’m too tired to cook. And I can pull the “me time” card when things get too hectic.
When it’s time to spend time on me, I tend to do something like get a pedicure or go shopping. But one of my favorite “me time” activities is sending everyone out of the house so I can stay in. Being alone in a quiet house is my favorite way to wind down. I can eat ice cream in bed and watch sappy movies. I can walk around in my underpants or stay in my jammies all day (I tend to do this anyway…ha!). I can just be me without worrying for a moment.
And in this moment, I’m only thinking about me. It’s ok – we can do that sometimes. So let me share with you one of my new found favorite deal sites and maybe you’ll think about you too.
We’ve all seen group shopping and discount sites, but we’ve not seen one like Plum District. The ladies at Plum District have taken the time to sort out the joys of “mom time” and “me time” and have created deals specifically tailored to my needs. I’m having a hard time deciding what items I want to spend my account dollars on! How about you? Don’t you deserve some “me time” too?

Today, after months of work, we are delighted to unveil the new Plum District. To meet the needs of the modern mom, we’ve rethought everything on the site — from our logo and our color palate, to the content we’ll publish everyday. We’re thrilled to share it with you. We partnered with marketing strategy firm thinkbrandnew and Sequitur Creative to conceptualize this project and bring our new site to life, and we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Of all people, moms have limited time, so we’ve worked hard to develop a site and emails that will provide a daily burst of ideas and inspiration to help moms take care of their families and her. It’s our sincerest hope that the new Plum District will find a place in the hearts and minds of busy moms everywhere!
We look forward to your thoughts, comments, and insights. We’ll be listening closely, and we will continue to update the site with useful features and informative content — all geared toward helping today’s mom meet the needs of her busy family, and take some well deserved “me time”!
All of us in the Plum District home office and in your local community will be working hard everyday, to make your day, and we hope you like the new site as much as we do!
