Hello. My name is Meredith Collins and I'm addicted to Groupon. *pause for audience sighs and acknowledgement of my admission*
This addiction started a few weeks ago when I downloaded the Groupon app on my phone. Since that time, I've found myself clicking on the app to open up the glorious savings that miraculously appear every day. EVERY DAY. *look away, trying to contain excitement over the wonder of this technology*
Usually, I just look through the items up on sale--Featured, Now!, Getaways, and Goods--trying not to click on the BUY. It's been a struggle. *pause again as the sympathetic sigh makes a wave over the crowd.
But then, upon me was a deal I couldn't pass up--2 hours of horseback riding through the Rocky Mountain National Park for 4 people for ONLY $99! Incredible buy! I immediately set up my Groupon account and that's when the addiction began... *look down in shame*
Suddenly, I have the need to get a manicure in Lakewood, sushi in Denver (I hate sushi, but my husband loves it), and a facial in the DTC. Seriously. *shakes head in disgust*
I'm looking forward to summer--to seeing all the great savings and adventures my children and I will get to go on, due to Groupon. I've even added the cites in Florida so I can get the savings when our family goes on vacation! We can save all over the country! *oops. I'm regressing.*
Working on my Groupon addiction is going to take more than 12-steps, I'm afraid. It's kind of like Kohl's--I feel like I'm getting paid to shop!
P.S. To my husband, Kent--this is a COMPLETE work of fiction. Don't feel the need to suddenly check our bank account for any Groupon withdrawals. It's all under control...
