Hello

&nbsp

I am a mum with 2 boys by my side, a toddler and a bearded hubbie, both of whom keep me smiling & frowning 🙂

&nbsp

When we had my son 3 years ago we made the decision that I would stay home for the first year so I could raise our son. As a result, our income halved, but I still wanted to get out and about to enjoy Melbourne and provide our son with as many opportunities for socialisation and development as possible, so I was always looking for the best deals and value for money options and this is how the Small Ideas book was born.

&nbsp

I approached hundreds of ‘kid friendly’ businesses/brands/companies across all districts of Melbourne requesting them to provide an exclusive discount or freebie for the book. I had an overwhelming response from over 160 Melbourne businesses who have provided 264 coupons across 5 popular categories (listed below). The discounts are presented various forms, including; 2 for 1 discounts, freebies, mothers group promotions, % off and other deals all exclusive to those who purchase the Small Ideas book. For full list of businesses included in the book and a link to their website click on ‘participating businesses’ in the menu. Some of the brands you will recognise and others you will be excited to discover.

&nbsp

If you purchase the Small Ideas 2016 book and follow my ‘small’ journey around Melbourne, not only are you going to be super busy you will have also visited many of our personal favourites and have saved hundreds and hundreds of dollars along the way!!!
