Children are many things — cheap is not one of them. While actual physical coupon clipping is suddenly cool again, thanks to a down economy and shows like Extreme Couponing, most busy moms don't have time to sit and clip for hours a day. With many of us doing our shopping online, combing the weeklies isn't going to do much good. We've rounded up a selection of great online deals this week — and with the money you save, maybe mama can do a lil something for herself to end the week!

Pack of 12 Earth's Best Organic 1st Vegetable Starter Kit (on sale for $7, orig. $12)
Many mamas make their lil one's baby food, and that's great. But when there just isn't time, there are options that mom can still feel good about. Earth's Best products are USDA certified organic, contain no GEIs (genetically engineered ingredients), and their glass containers are recyclable. Keeping a few of these jars on hand (even when you have a table food eater) is great for emergencies, and they make great sauces for pasta or bread dunking.
Save 50 percent on Gap Maternity nursing bras (on sale for $15, orig. $30)
A good nursing bra is important, but not something most moms want to invest a lot of money on in the beginning. Between leakage, spit up, and general new mommy grunginess, nursing bras do need replacing sooner than we'd like to admit. Stock up on Gap Maternity's simple, comfortable nursing bras for between $12 and $15, about half their regular price.
Free Gymboree class
No doubt city living has its advantages. But the lack of space for kids to run around and burn off their unbelievable amount of energy can have the most steadfast city dweller gazing longingly toward the 'burbs. Gymboree is a lifesaver when mom needs somewhere to take the kiddies and turn them loose to burn off some steam. This coupon will get you one free class, two Play & Music classes, and discount coupons for Gymboree clothing stores, Janie and Jack, and Crazy 8.
