Feb 122013

As much as I absolutely adore my gorgeous bunch of kids I will be the first to admit that it gets very busy with three little ones. Luckily I don’t get stressed too easily and have learnt to choose my battles, it is more important to me that we are all happy and enjoying life together than that the washing basket is always empty. In saying that, every now and then I do need a quiet minute to myself and my favourite treat is a (rare) visit to the hairdresser. These appointments could easily make a huge dent in our one-income family budget but luckily for me there is Groupon.


If you haven’t heard of Groupon yet you are really missing out. This group buying website is a fantastic tool for Australian mums to get a little spoilt every now and then and save money at the same time. Every day Groupon releases a bunch of awesome deals, from products to services to experiences, it is always a surprise. Because so many people purchase the Groupon deals they are able to secure much better prices than if you were to buy as an individual, the power is in the numbers.

Because you provide your postcode when signing up you always receive offers that are local, a great way to discover new businesses in your area. When I spot an awesome Groupon deal for a hair makeover or a relaxing massage I grab the voucher (often saving as much as 75%) and make a note for myself when to book the appointment for (depending on the conditions of the voucher). I usually book for 3 or 6 months in advance, this means I can look forward to it for a while and get the kids organised. Sometimes I have already forgotten all about it and then it is such a lovely surprise to have a special treat saved up. I love it!

(By the way, of course Groupon does not only have fantastic offers for mums. Last year I used the Dutch Groupon website to book my husband a special Ferrari experience on the old Formula 1 racetrack in Belgium, to be used during our holiday. He absolutely loved it and because I was familiar with Groupon I knew I could count on great service. If you want to organise something special for your husband keep an eye on the Groupon emails, you’ll no doubt find something there that he will enjoy and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner.)

  38. Taking proper care of ourselves is essential for physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. The better we feel, the more we’re able to engage fully with our lives and the richer our relationships with other people become. A good pampering session can balance us from the inside out, refreshing, relaxing and rejuvenating us, making us happier and saner, all of which we’ll carry with us into our dealings with the wider world.
    For the above reasons I couldn’t go past the Valentine’s Special – $69 for a Two-Hour Pamper Package Including Full Body Massage, Facial and Back Scrub at Bellezza Boutique!
