I have to confess that I have not visited my hair and nail salon on a regular basis for the past year. If my memory serves me right, I have only had a haircut once and a decent manicure and pedicure twice. I've resorted to just cutting my nails short and painting my own nails. I can't cut my hair to save my own life, though. We were also on vacation in Europe for a couple of months and I cannot believe the super expensive rates. Can you imagine paying 450 Danish kroner (around USD75) for a simple hair cut? As a point of reference, you can get a decent hair cut in a reputable hair salon for only USD10 in the Philippines.

I don't really know how to explain why I lost that drive to pamper myself sometimes. I think being a stay-at-home mom is not an excuse to look unkempt but I guess it's really the price and the time that holds me back from going. My time is essentially spent caring for my daughter's needs as well as designing paper crafts and other projects for my little home-based business when she's napping or tucked in bed at night. However, I also know that I have to have some me-time and not completely lose myself in frumpy oversized shirts and messy buns all the time.

Pampering is expensive alright but it is when Groupon comes to mind. Groupon aims to provide great value for consumers, just like you and me, while at the same time providing a great experience and then allows merchants to attract more customers and run their businesses better. Imagine paying only USD13.99 for a USD129 teeth whitening kit and refills - that's a whopping 89% savings!

Hey, a penny saved is a penny saved! With Groupon though, you don't just save a penny, you save hundreds of dollars and sometimes even thousands. I especially love Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons because I save while indulging on me-time/girlfriend bonding time. if you don't have an account with Groupon yet I suggest you go and sign-up now so you can jump in on the first great deal that you bump into. Really, when you're a mother, you want to save on anything and you can start with Groupon.

What coupons do you plan to save on with Groupon? Let me know...
