Pampering Yourself for Less. One of my favorite quotes is by the great Lucille Ball. She said "Love yourself first and everything else falls in line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world." Powerful words and so true.
As you know I taught Home Economics for 11 years. One of my favorite classes to teach was called Life skills. In this class I taught goal setting, self-esteem, money management, sewing, cooking and other basic life skills. I started the self-esteem unit by reading The Ugly Duckling. They thought it was strange until I finished the book, and we began our self-discovery journey. I always shared with my students that you must love yourself 100% before you can fall in love. I spent 6 weeks encouraging my students to love themselves through a variety of activities and this quote is one that I really adore. I find it so true.
As Moms, we often find ourselves taking the back seat. We spend our time and money on our kids, and it is easy to get "lost". We often times give up our own identity for our children. Before I had Peyton I took the time for manicures, pedicures and massages. I did things just for ME. Once I became a mom, I gave that up for yoga pants and midnight feedings and did my own nails and did without massages.
I would get one spa treatment for Mother's Day each year. Oh, how I missed the ME time, but I couldn't justify it. However, as Peyton got more independent and was school aged, I discovered that it is important to really take care of ME again. I needed time for myself and I needed that more than just once a year. I really didn't want to spend a lot of money on myself because we didn't have a lot of extra money in our budget for Spa visits however I discovered a way to pamper myself for less by using Groupon.
Pampering Yourself for Les:
If you have never used Groupon before you are really missing out. Groupon is a great way to save on everything, especially spa treatments! You purchase a Groupon at a discounted price and then you can schedule and redeem your Groupon later. Just be sure to always read the fine print and any stipulations before you purchase. Even if you accidentally let your Groupon expire the certificate is always worth the face value that you paid.
In fact, I have even had businesses honor expired Groupon Certificates for me. I want to share with you have I have personally been using Groupon since 2008 and it is a great way to save money. I have never had an issue with a Groupon but again always read the fine print. There are so many amazing ways to save with Groupon. You can even afford to pamper yourself for less!
Beauty & Spa - There are so many amazing ways to save at the Spa through Groupon. For example, you can save up to 47% off a massage when you purchase a Groupon for one. You can also save up to 75% on Teeth-Whitening Treatments, eye lash extensions, manicures and so much more! There are so many ways you can pamper yourself for less.
Just like Lucille Ball said it is really important to love yourself first. Once you do everything will fall into place. That means that you need to take time to pamper yourself. Shelley and I recently took time to Pamper ourselves. I had a facial and Shelley had a massage. We took this time because we deserve it and so do you! Of course, by spending less through Groupon you can actually afford to Pamper Yourself More!
