Mother of All Deals

A free personal shopper service, rental dresses and summer passes for the kids at New World Laser Tag!

Hi, my name is Jennine Goldenberg; I’m a new member of the Moms’ Council. I have a wonderful husband, 12-year-old stepson, 3-year-old daughter, as well as a 2-year-old son. 

Some of my friends call me “Super Mom” but I think they are just trying to flatter me. My passions are my children, baking and I love to cook a great homemade meal. Plan on hearing from me once a month.  

The suggestions in my Mother of All Deals column may not only save you money; some may save you A LOT of time. As a busy mom, I am sure many of you will appreciate that!

Loved your article! Who knew you could rent a dress for a special occassion instead of shelling out big bucks for something your probably never going to wear again!

Thank you Rose! It will make me think long and hard about ever purchasing another dress for an occasion. I loved the idea and can't wait to try it out!

Great deals! Not too fond of renting a gown but it is an option. And I would have never guessed Macy's offer that service. Awesome!
