I’m excited to partner with Groupon again! Groupon is a service I love and use on a regular basis. This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.
Can you believe it’s back to school time already? If the kids aren’t already in school, they are headed back soon! I was thinking back to going away to university and what that was like. Whew it was stressful! I had never really been away from home like that (and I was attending university 1000 miles away from my home) and on top of it, shortly after arriving on campus to get settled into my dorm before classes started, I found out I had pneumonia. And of course, I lived in a dorm that was at the bottom of the hill that my university sat on. Sigh. Anyway, I had done some shopping ahead of time to buy what I needed to get started but of course, once I got there, I found out that there were a few gaps and I need to purchase a few more things.
Save Money on College Supplies with Groupon
Oh how I wish Groupon had existed back then! Outfitting an entire room at university may not sound like much – as compared to say, outfitting an entire apartment – but it still added up. Recently, I was helping a friend and her daughter make plans for her daughter to head off to her first year of university; brainstorming with them what she needed to buy and looking for bargains on those items. They had been out shopping all day for two days straight and found the prices very frustrating to say the least. Oh, there were some sales but some key items were still really pricey. I suggested checking Groupon Goods.
Take a Look at Groupon
If you haven’t used Groupon yet, you really must take a look at it. It’s a great way to save on goods, services, and events. I’ve signed up to get alerts in my city and surrounding areas, as well as in areas where friends and family live so I can also be on top of the best deals for my own use or to give as gifts to others. With just a quick search on Groupon, I was able to find noise cancelling, sweat-proof, wireless headphones (something on my friend’s daughter’s list for university) for only $40, a USB charging station to charge 6 of her devices at once for $19, under bed storage containers for $12, and a gel memory foam mattress topper for $30. That was just for starters!
Get the Groupon App
If you download the Groupon shopping app, you can even find bargains on the go as you are doing your shopping and use it for price comparisons. It really can’t get any easier than that to save money!
