Since moving to the city nearly two years ago, (crazy it’s already been that long) MacKay and I have enjoyed navigating our way around. NYC is the perfect city for people that love to go out and do things. I am so thanksful to live here becuase there is always something to do. You will never be bored here in NYC.

Last year MacKay and I started a weekend routine of exploring different neighborhoods around the city. We would pick a place that we don’t frequent often (there are so many) and go there to just explore. There are so many parts of Manhattan that look completely different from one another. It’s so exciting to take in all of the culture and experiences that NYC has to offer.

In our quest to learn more about the different neighborhoods, I often look at the daily deal site emails that pop into my inbox every morning for fun products and services around the city. I’m not usually one to buy them because while it looks good in the heading, once you read the fine print there are too many limitations. That was until I found SquareSpot, a new online marketplace dedicated to meeting the needs of discerning moms and families.

One of the reasons that I love SquareSpot is that it was started by a busy NYC mom of two. I am a sucker for mom-owned businesses because they know what other moms truly want and need. All of the products and services offered on SquareSpot are focused around the family.

Their discounted deals range from a family photo session in Central Park to a five hour cleaning session (which I indulged in.) They offer deals throughout the New York City. With their constant focus on keeping the family in mind, they are now my go to site for NYC deals.

The process of signing up and purchasing a deal with SquareSpot was so easy. The best part was that I don’t have to worry about the fine print with any of their deals, because there isn’t any. Everything that the deal has to offer is right there for you see.

Another great thing that SquareSpot has to offer is the SquareCard. A SquareCard gives you exclusive benefits to various places and services around the city. So when we check out those new neighborhoods, I can find the local retailers that accept the SquareCard and save!

I cannot say enough good things about this site! If you live in NYC, I suggest you sign up for SquareSpot right away! You will not be disappointed!

As the weather starts to warm up and we start our tradition of visiting different neighborhoods in NYC, I’ll definitely check out SquareSpot for deals before we go!

  2. I would love to see spinning class deals — I’m a tad obsessed.

    PS: Saw you at the Little Mommy event and wanted to tell you how much I love your blog, but didn’t want to bother you, because you were rocking Avery to sleep and doing such a good job of keeping her asleep despite all the tiny little voices excitedly shouting about their new dollies.

  3. I’d like to see deals for natural/organic products. It’s hard to cut costs in this area.
