Retail therapy, amiright? Sometimes you just gotta log on and buy yourself something. I know the saying is "money can't buy happiness," but let's be candid -- MONEY can buy THINGS that make me very, very happy.
I'm just truth telling. Don't judge.
One of my obsessions in the pursuit of retail therapy is actually buying experiences. I love to treat myself to a blow-out, a massage, a mani/pedi or some other fun activity I can engage in with friends. It just makes your feel so great! It's a small way to make an ordinary day feel like a special ocassion or make a special ocassion feel extra special.
I find myself getting a ton of use out of health, beauty and wellness Groupons section. In that space, I can find everything I need to feel like my happy, feeling-good, pampered self. Everything from the massages I love to the experiences I enjoy with friends. The thing I like the most about using Groupon as a resource is that with their pricing being lower than the normal purchase price, I always feel incentivized to try something I otherwise might not consider!
Groupon's motto is "own the experience," to which I say: YES.
