I admit it: I LOVE groupon. I love opening my mail in the morning to find out all the fun ways that I could be “saving” money today. I love that moment when I realize that the hot yoga voucher or discounted afternoon tea I’ve been waiting weeks for has finally arrived. It’s like a little present in my inbox every day.
The problem with groupon is, of course, that you have to spend money in order to save it. Had I been planning to have a massage? No. But I’ve spent £30 on one (I saved £50, I swear.) Groupon makes me want things I can’t have and, frankly, don’t really need. Laser skin resurfacing – I’m not 30 yet. Accounting classes – I can probably do without those as well. Despite my love of groupon, the worst thing about getting those money saving emails is that I can’t buy any of them.
Today is different. Today, I get to make that fabulous groupon purchase. And what am I buying? British military fitness passes!
It’s been months and months since I worked out properly, and with regular meetings in Battersea park, there is absolutely NO excuse to not use these passes. I get 6 passes for £24, or £4 per fitness class. That's a pretty good deal.
Will I hate these classes? Probably. I’m really more of a yoga girl. But it’s summer (sort of) and I have wedding dresses to try on. No time like the present.
