The day I caught hubby ‘clipping coupons’ and browsing online supermarket weekly’s, I jokingly teased him that he was eligible for the television show, “Extreme Couponing.”
However, becoming a family of 2 to 5 in a matter of 4 years, it became a necessity.
Kids. Are. Expensive.
To be honest, clipping coupons was a 360 from our ‘past lives.’ We were always money conscious, however, it was never a topic that kept us up at night. We worked hard and we played harder. Nothing for dinner? Morton’s it is! Long weekend? Newport, RI anyone!?
Doesn’t that just sum up life before kids, daycare, diapers, career changes… You know the deal. Having a family is expensive and if there are any seamless ways to cut corners and create a more frugal, manageable, and FUN lifestyle then I’m game.
Although, seeking a discount is no longer limited exclusively to supermarket shopping. Retailers, restaurants and bars, local arenas that offer events and activities are all hopping on board the days of discounts and deals.
I know many of you are familiar with Groupon. I say this because every once in a while a friend will email me a forwarded ‘Deal of the Day’ activity or restaurant discount with a message attached, “Girls night out?”
So when I was recently contacted by Groupon I was excited to be informed about their newest business model. Now I don’t want to get all ad talk or infomercial on you but I thought it worthy to share. I know my family and friends appreciate a deal. So share the wealth, right!?
So a technical little blurb of this new biz model..
Groupon has expanded from their typical model of purchasing a deal upfront to offering what they call, Groupon Coupons. They have collected and curated a group of 55,000 coupons and promo codes from top stores and retailers.
I picked out a couple of my favorite stores and retailers as well as highlighted one of their many currently running coupons below…
Ok, I guess I have a lot of favorites! I mean, travel discount anyone? Um, I. Think. So.
So just a little something to put in your back pocket. (Which is hopefully a little fuller with all the cash you’re saving. 😉 )
Moving forward I will continue to leave the supermarket ‘coupon clipping’ to Hubby. However, I will gladly step in and financially handle our savings towards… maybe a special dinner out, a family friendly activity and my fav (ie. makeup) and not so fav (ie. diapers) products.
Your welcome, Hubby. You. Are. Welcome.
