My shopping hack

The thing about my favorite hobby – travel – is that I’ve had to sacrifice a whole lot of other things to go on these amazing adventures. It has to be worth it for me to spend money on something else, ya know? Because those trips to the mall can add up to be a plane ticket somewhere, so for me I have to know I’m getting a good deal to make it worth it. Hence, Groupon.

Now, I have been a fan of Groupon for years – first with purchasing the occasional Groupon for a restaurant or facial and I even mentioned them on the blog years ago when I got an amazing curling wand that I STILL use all the time (has to be at least 6 years old now for about $21 – originally $189). I even got my first nice camera off Groupon – a Canon Rebel Ti 5 for only $500 before I started traveling – which is such a good price!

Well then, things got more serious when I realized I can actually buy Groupons to use at all my favorite stores! I used a Groupon at Nordstrom to buy my Betsey Johnson boots that were already way marked down from this blog post – I think I paid $40?! I am absolutely that girl that if you say, “Oh, I love your boots!” I want to tell you where I got them, where to find a coupon, how to get them on sale.

Nordstrom also has all my beauty must haves and I take advantage of their half yearly sale to stock up on things like my favorite deodorant (smells amazing, trust me – never going back to that drug store stuff).  My current wish list: facial steamerface mask,  Mario Badescu kit , Flower bomb set .

I wanted to share the savings with you guys so here’s a few links for Groupons to my favorite stores!

  1. Finding a bargain is always pleasing – especially when it is for something you really love. And those travels will feel all the sweeter for having to make some sacrifices to get there. And, as anyone who ever travelled knows, you need very little on the road anyway. The fewer things you take, the less you are burdened, both physically and mentally 🙂
