  • Morning Coffee: I’m loving Groupon

    GrouponGroupon is quickly becoming my favorite hot deals site. Last week I got a Shutterfly photo book for $10 plus shipping, and yesterday I picked up a gift box of 24 Insomnia Cookiesfor just $22 including shipping (a $50 value). It’s going to make the perfect birthday gift for the woman who is my surrogate mom and is the hardest person to buy for. These online deals that are available to anyone regardless of where they live are just awesome. The Shutterfly deal is back in Alberquerque today – just click on “Visit More Cities” when you get to Groupon. If you use Picaboo for photo books, you can get $100 worth for just $25 in Fort Worth, and the Insomnia Cookie deal is in Miami. Links via
