As people, no matter the age, we are all constantly evolving. And at this particular time in my own life, I find myself wanting to learn new things and expand my horizons. But recently thrust into the post-grad career world, I also have goals—and budgets. Fortunately, I live in an age where loads of information and penny-pinching avenues are at my fingertips. So, where to start? Allow me to introduce one of my favorite digital tools: LivingSocial.
LivingSocial is an online resource for discovering hobbies, getaways and products in your area for a discounted cost. Have you ever dreamed of picking up a new hobby but never really knew where to start or how expensive it might be? With LivingSocial, the sky is the limit—from yoga sessions to a beginner’s painting class or even a trip to Costa Rica! All listed for less than the retail price.
Diving in is easy. Simply visit the website at www.livingsocial.com. Complete your registration and enter your zip code, and you’re free to search for deals in your area. You’ll receive daily emails about new deals that arise in your selected location.
Everyone loves a good bargain. If you have been sitting home contemplating whether or not to take a vacation because it might be too expensive, or to pick up a new hobby because you don’t know where to start, LivingSocial could be your answer. You might even discover a deal for something you never expected to be interested in.
I once heard this profound quote: “Now is the time to make your move—under the present and existing circumstances. Proceed without hesitating. Tomorrow isn’t promised.” Even at 24 years old, I realize the importance of getting out there and living. From tubing down the Delaware river with friends, to trying out a new hair salon (at which I am now a regular client), I find LivingSocial to be the perfect way to take advantage of the things life has to offer.
My advice: Get up, log on and start looking. Because you can always benefit from something that makes your life just a little more interesting.
