Groupon!

Another great way to save everyday is with Groupon .  They’ve been around for awhile, but I finally caved in and clicked on their Google ad the other day.  Everyday they promote a new deal that you can purchase.  Most of the time you can save up 50%, for example today’s was pay $10 for $20 worth of cupcakes from Chickalicious.  (I even had a friend who messaged me today, after signing up at Groupon yesterday, that she couldn’t resist to pass up a savings like that!)  The savings don’t stop at food discounts, it opens the doors to tons of activities and discounts in your city.  I wonder what tomorrow’s deal will be.  I haven’t purchased a Groupon yet, but I can see myself saving a lot of money in the future.
