GROUPON with Frugal Fix
Here is one of my all time favorite money saving sites that I buy from often... Groupon.com. Groupon.com offers vouchers for local businesses in your area at DEEP discounts - as in 50%, 75% and I have even bought vouchers for 80% off!!!!!!! It makes going out to eat as a family reasonable again and actually FUN. No longer do you have to order just one steak burger and split it six ways just to afford a night out with the family. No longer do you have to pretend the rest of the family isn't sharing the one Coke that you ordered, even though their ice water is still full at the end of the meal and you just so happen to be on your 11th free refill.
Each deal is offered for just one day and one day only so you can't dilly dally. Groupon.com doesn't just deal with restaurants but other businesses as well. Popular clothing stores such as GAP has been featured in the past (50% off). Also, such things as cooking classes, spas, photography, pottery classes, you name it, it has probably been offered on Groupon.com. In fact, today's offer, in my area, is a $23 oil change, tire rotation and break inspection package (that's a 54% savings).
And if you think your city, state, or even country isn't participating, THINK AGAIN! All you have to do is type in your zip code on Groupon.com or search for your country and BANG! you can view the deals in your area. Don't forget, if your planning a vacation, to search for the deals in the area where you will be vacationing - you'll save a bundle!!
