If you have been around this blog, you know that I absolutely love to save money. My kids are familiar with my mantra that if we do not have a coupon or it is not on sale, we do not purchase the item. I have even instituted this at work. My colleagues know to look for a coupon or a discount before we order anything. To me, saving money is life, which is why Groupon goods is at the top of my list when I am looking for a good deal!
This summer has been nothing but insurance nightmares between our house and car. In June we were hit by a massive storm which did $15,000.00 of damage to our house. It has taken 2 months to fix everything that needed to be fixed. We have a few more things we need to take care of. First, we need to insulate our garage door, as there are some tears in the garage door from the hail and instead of getting a new door we opted to spend that money on better paint for our house. Insulating the garage door will really help save money in the long run by keeping the rooms above the garage warmer in the winter. I found a fantastic deal on Groupon Goods for this Reach Barrier Garage Door insulation kit!
At a 53% discount this is the best deal I have seen. We ordered ours and I cannot wait for it to come in. The winter here in Colorado is projected to start quickly and be long and cold, so the sooner the better!
In addition to the garage door, we need to replace our solar lights that were obliterated during the storm. We had a very nice set of solar lights that lit our sidewalk and driveway nicely but unfortunately they did not survive the storm. I found these awesome LED Solar Pathway lights at a 50% discount.
Lastly, our American Flag bunting that I keep up from Memorial Day to Labor Day was pretty torn up. Normally I bring them in when it is storming, however, we were in Mexico when this storm slammed into our home and so I was unable to bring them in. Coming home and seeing my house in duress was saddening, as we have put so much time, effort and money into making our house a welcoming home. I am excited to get this American Flag bunting in and put it up for Veteran’s Day coming up!
Groupon Goods offers so many deals and amazing savings. I cannot get enough of them and am so happy that I am able to save money while we put our lives back together. It has been a rough summer, but things are coming along. Take a look at our house now and imagine it with new solar lights and beautiful bunting on the porch!
Saving money with 1 click is wonderful, and although the bright side of this storm is that we have a new roof, a new paint job and a beautifully re-stained and repaired fence, the bigger deal is that we have been able to put everything back together and stay on budget even fitting in the little details that make our house a home thanks to Groupon!
