Groupon is making me a shopaholic.

It's true. I was first introduced to this delightful angel of savings by my friend Kristin, who sent me one as a gift. I made an account, and started receiving daily emails containing thousands of things I instantly needed.

AND could save money on!

Like massages, exotic vacations, and SHOES at!

If you've seen my closet, you'll agree that I own less pairs of shoes than K does. Flat black boots, 3 pairs of Target flip flops, 1 pair of fancy flops (J-Crew outlet, beyotches!) and a few pairs of black heels that have been collecting dust in my closet since I started working from home. Who the hell needs stilettos when I can work in my Snuggie slippers? Needless to say, a Groupon for shoes is not a necessity for me.

My fancy flops. See the flowers?
Suddenly, everything that Groupon was offering me was something I DESPERATELY needed.

Ooh, electrolysis treatments! You know, I've been THINKING of looking into that!
Yoga classes! I haven't been in 6 months, but now seems like a good time to start!
Home Teeth Whitening Kit! Maybe my smile COULD use some brightening...

Before I knew it, I had 4 purchased Groupons in my queue. They make it so damn easy, saving your credit card info like that.

I actually used one Monday night, at a yoga class with my sister. But I can't tell if it proved beneficial, or a positive reinforcement to my shopping addiction.

Groupon Lovers Anonymous, anyone?


  1. OMG ME TOO! I just saw one for a 2-day cleanse program and my finger is itching to click "buy". Pretty sure Dan would kill me because it's $89, but I had the exact same thoughts - "Ohhhh! I've been LOOKING for a cleanse! And look! Joe Schmo lost 11 lbs in 2 days on this cleanse! See, it does work!"

  2. I am signed up but never bought any, my colleagues use it a lot tho...maybe i will...just one time. what could be the harm right?

  3. Katie, I seriously considered laser hair removal for the first time after seeing the groupon. Needless to say, I changed my mind. Poke, it's a great program, but a slippery slope to Groupon Lovers Anonymous. I'll save you a seat at the next meeting.
