Online Shopping, It's the Only Way to Go... now with added GIVEAWAY!

So shut-up and be grateful! You can read my disclosure policy here.
On Tuesday I wrote a rather Ranty McRanterson post about my dislike for shopping, and in particular my hatred for grocery shopping. A lot of the comments suggested that I give online grocery shopping a go and I tell ya, a lightbulb went off in my head.
We used online grocery shopping quite a few times when it was first launched and it worked really well so to be honest, I have no idea why I stopped using it and promptly forgot all about it. Actually no, I think one of the reasons might have been because I kept forgetting my login details and had to go through all the rigmarole of setting everything up again. That would definitely be a reason why Miss Queen of Laziness over here would stop bothering!
I think another reason might be because it requires so much fore-thought and planning, re: meals for the week etc. But I am thinking I am going to give it another go. Maybe this week, just depends on if I can get Dave to sit down with me to plan a little bit ahead!
The thing is, I love online shopping. One of the things I buy the most online is books. Don't get me wrong, if there is one kind of shopping that I DO love to do, it's book shopping, but there is nothing like the convenience of reading a review of a new book and then jumping straight over to Booktopia to order a copy, or having a copy sent straight to my Kindle or iPad instantaneously.
One of the other places that I love to shop online at is group-buying websites. You know the ones with the daily deals that are massively discounted if a certain amount of people buy the product, holiday or experience? I LOVE them!
I love them so much in fact that I am signed up to all of the group-buying websites daily emails and have a special folder in my email where they are all delivered so I can go through them all in the one place.
So you can imagine that when I got an email from a lovely man at Groupon, one of the awesome group-buying websites that I am signed up to, asking if I would like to offer you, dear readers, a $50 voucher to use towards anything you like from the Groupon.com.au website, well. I
The timing was perfect as I was actually trying to think of a few things I could offer in a giveaway to celebrate Mia's forthcoming 1st birthday. So today I am doing just that! I am giving you the chance to win said $50 voucher, to use on the Groupon website.
There are some seriously awesome offers at the moment, but one of the things I like about the Groupon website is the photography stuff they offer. They have heaps of offers for sessions with professional photographers for bargain prices, as well as the opportunity to participate in photography courses. I am always particularly interested in the offers for photography courses because, as you all know, I am a photography nut and love to learn as much as I can about my passion.
If you want to see what kinds of things are on offer then jump on over here to the Groupon website (personally I'm pretty keen to get my hands on this set of canvas prints). As I said, there's all sorts of things you can get for a great discount. If you're interested in any of the photography offers then you should pop over here to see what's currently available and what things they have lined up for the future.
To be in the running to win, simply leave a comment on this post, and don't forget to validate it using the little competition widget below. There's also a few other ways to increase your chances of winning so get on it!
Have the best day !
What I DON'T like is when I spend 5 hours filling my cart at Amazon and get to checkout and they are all 'no way biatch. We aint delivering no shit that far...'
But online shopping at Lush and T2? Awesomeness.
Especially if it is overseas!
Thanks for linking up Kylie x
I used to do most of my groceries online (less impulse buying) but then it became hard to order the brands I liked and I didn't trust the freshness of the bread or fruit and vegies chosen.
I'm tempted by Modcloth and have bought from a few of the other fashion online retailers. My treasured finds are on Etsy although I'll gaze through the window at Net-a-Porter.
And I agr, I can't imagine having to get around Westfield while heavily pregnant and dealing with a toddler. That's my idea of the ultimate nightmare!
Love Groupon and Scoopon etc. I'm doing a shark dive next weekend with a voucher I bought online. Grays Online need a support group for people as addicted as I am.
Love shopping around for the best price on face creams etc.
That said, I was disappointed the last couple of times I did groceries online, so I've stopped doing it.
My favourite item was my zaggora hotpants that i bought from Groupon! They helped me lose 9 kilos :)

Hands down it was a voucher I bought last year to Long Island in the Whitsundays. I had never been and had always yearned to go. We spent 5 nights on Long Island for $399 for the two of us!! An amazingly cheap holiday and a fantastic relaxing break for hubby and I.
