Review: Groupon Coupons

There were a lot of things I knew would change when I became a mom. Like my sleep schedule and social calendar (or lack thereof). What they don’t tell you are little things like how long it takes you to get ready to go anywhere. As in… that quick 30-minute trip to the mall? Yeah, now it takes 3,487,975 minutes… just to get out the door. Oh, and my “cute shoes” budget is now the “diaper and formula budget”… well, at least until I found the miracle mecca I’m about to tell you about.

Hope you’re sitting down. At a computer. Wait, you’re reading this, so we’re good. Go to www.groupon.com/coupons and this my friends will be your new favorite site to save on just about anywhere you want to shop, especially if you’re shopping online.

Now, if you’re like me, you see Groupons and think “Sweet! Half off deal at my favorite sushi restaurant.” Yes, it’s that same Groupon but they have this tab for coupons that I just discovered.

Now this isn’t your 40 cents off milk kind of grocery coupon site. This is more like 60% off Christmas toys for your kids, 40% off that cologne you wanted to get your husband, and 35% off the all-inclusive trip you just booked for summer vacation.

These coupons are free, and they have 70,000 coupons from 9,000+ stores like BabiesRUs, Sam’s Club, Kohl’s, Office Depot, JC Penney, FootlockerHarry and David, Nine West, Loft, and even Lord & Taylor.

So, I just thought I’d share my little savings secret with you since now I’ve used several and I’m officially obsessed. Seriously. Go to Groupon Coupons, bookmark it and check the site before you buy anything to see if there’s a deal! You’ll get obsessed too. And look good doing it. Because a Groupon Coupon got your outfit at 40% off.

LOL Savings Summit Recap

If you missed our LOL Live: Savings Summit today, you missed a lot. But that’s ok. I still love you.

I recorded the presentation Kasmira (from What I Wore Today) and I did today. I linked the video below. Also below is a slideshow of pics of Londyn from blogfashion who helped us out by modeling a remixed dress. She helped us see one dress in four different looks. It was fab!

Enjoy the full recording of our presentation below. If you want to see our slides, click here. To those of you who did come, thank you! It was so fun! : )

Hope to see everyone at next year’s LOL Live: Savings Summit!



Savings Summit Sneak Peek

lol liveAs you probably know, I’m one of many bloggers here on Cincinnati.com/LOL. We’re all cool, fun and informative in our own special way. But we all kind of hid behind our own computer screens and never really collaborated.

Well, a few months ago, we came up with the idea to take a break from our online blogging world and enter the real space to meet our readers in person, and inform them about things they really want to learn more about.

Of course, money is top of mind for all of us, so we decided the over-arching topic of this event should be about saving money. And from there, the idea evolved into the LOL Live: Savings Summit, a free, fun-filled, information-packed day where you can get practical tips and tricks to saving money on groceries, clothing, health and fitness.
LOL live
It’s going to be on May 15, from 10am-3pm at the Elements Event Center in Sharonville. I think they’re only letting about 300 people in, and it’s first come first served, so register today! It’s free (we’re asking for a canned good donation to the Freestore Food Bank) and it’s going to be very informative, so I hope you’ll come.

Kasmira from the What I Wore Today blog and I are working together on a seminar called “Heels and Steals.” Kasmira will be talking about how to swap, accessorize and refresh your wardrobe with little to no money (here is a link to her sneak peek blog). And I’ll be talking about how to get that look for less (hair/makeup/skincare/fashion) with various savvy shopping sites, coupon codes, and experts in town who offer quality services at cut-rate prices. The other seminars include couponing with MommySnacks, and “How to Pad Your Wallet Not Your Butt” with Dr. Huber.

Remember, if you attend our seminar, we need you to bring a scarf (oblong, pashmina-sized) for an interactive scarf workshop. Bring your favorite technique to share!

Should be a great time! Register here: http://lolsavings.eventbrite.com/
