A month or so ago I signed up for Groupon, billed as a site that offers an awesome deal a day in your city ... or a city near you as the closest one to me is Tampa, but we go there on occasion so, for the low, low price of an e-mail a day I figured it was worth it.
I've seen florists, restaurants, theaters, laundry services, and who knows what else show up. Needless to say, a good variety of deals. But nothing that flipped my skirt until today.
Today's deal was a $59 one-hour on-site photo shoot plus digital images from Angela Clifton Photography at a 79% discount. I need this very much. We have no good photos of all the kids, or all the kids and me. So I bought it. It's a splurge, I know, but not a huge one and given what it comes with I know it'll be well worth it. Of course, I'll let the location be chosen by her as we're out of her area. I'm so excited!
I highly recommend signing up for Groupon and their e-mail alerts. You never know what might come along and be just what you need.
(and I got the impression they'll be adding a lot more cities, I came across an ad looking for marketing reps. on Craig's List the other day)
**if you follow either of the Groupon links above to join up I will be on my way to earning a bonus, which I sure can use! Once you sign up you can start earning referral bonuses too, so it's all good. Thanks.
