I like to save money whenever I can. I think most people do, really, because who wants to pay full price for anything when there's even a chance that there's a good deal out there somewhere? But, at the same time, who wants to sit around searching for sales and deals? Saving money is good, but time is money, so you need to save your time, too...
That's where Groupon comes in handy. There are great deals on tons of different restaurants, activities, concerts/shows, spas, really on anything! When Derek and I took a staycation this summer, I spent about an hour researching Indoor Activities (because we're both babies about the heat) that we could do at a discount. And I found some great stuff! We ended up going to an Escape the Room for half price. Oh, and any time I need my car washed? I check Groupon and can usually find a two-for-one deal at a nearby place!
Last year, I decided to ditch the jeans from October-April and experiment with leggings instead. Boom, discounts on multi-packs of leggings.
One thing I would really love to do is go and get a massage. My neck has been incredibly stiff lately, ever since I started my job with The Advocacy Project and sitting at a desk working on a laptop for 7-8 hours per day. (Even though I'm super short AND keep my chair at the lowest position, I still have to look down at my screen. It's bad for posture!) There are definitely some kinks that need to be worked out! I'm sure I'll be looking for a spa in the Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons area in the near future. Not only do I know I'll be able to find a place in my area with a great deal, but I can also read reviews of the places right on Groupon without having to look on Yelp, Google, or the company's website! It's super convenient.
(One time, Groupon e-mailed me with a deal for "Ladies' Night Out" packages that included Brazilian waxing. I had to wonder what kind of woman thinks that getting waxed down there sounds like a good idea for a girls' night out, but hey, it's good to know that they offer waxing packages!)
What kinds of deals have you shopped for on Groupon? Do you happen to know of a good spa in the D.C. area that frequently offers deals? ;) Let me know in the comments!
