carrie isaacWelcome to Springs Bargains, a service of our real estate business, The Circa Group at RE/MAX Properties! I'm Carrie, and I share ways to enjoy Colorado Springs for free or cheap, including cheap and family-friendly events and things to do, weekly grocery deals, and more.

20 Days of $20 Deals at Downtown Businesses (Starts April 1st)

A bunch of downtown businesses are offering $20 deals for the first twenty days in April!  This includes restaurants, salons, boutiques, and things to do.  I saw things like two can dine for $20 and a $5 bonus when you buy a $20 gift card!  You can see all the deals that are being offered here.


Any Medium or Large Pizza $8.99 at Domino’s (All Month)

You can get any medium or large pizza for $8.99 at Domino’s during the month of April: just use promo code M899 online, or I believe that you can ask for this special when ordering.  There are some other deals that are better if you aren’t maximizing the number of toppings (their two or more medium, two-topping pizzas for $5.99 ongoing deal is great, IMO!) but this promo seems to be valid on any pizza.


Safeway Weekly Deals (4/1-4/7): Great Deals on Bath Tissue + Cake & Brownie Mix for $0.50

Safeway has Betty Crocker cake and brownie mix for $0.50 after this printable coupon this week, plus C&H granulated sugar for cheap and Quilted Northern and Angel Soft Bath Tissue for $0.33/roll after coupons.

Free Book for 4-Year-Olds (Various Pick Up Locations): April 13-27

The annual “One Book 4 Colorado” program will be coming up this month! Four-year-old children can get a free book of their very own at participating libraries and health clinics from April 13th-27th.  You can find a pick up location here and get all the details here!


Colonial Living History Days (in Denver) Coming Up April 24th & 25th

This event is a bit of a drive (it’s in Westminster), but it’s so unique and well-done that it’s worth a drive, in my opinion!  Living History Days will take place April 24th and 25th at KPOF Radion Station in Westminster, reliving events at Fort Watson in South Carolina in 1781.  They’ll have battle reenactments, a drama, and more hands-on activities.  Here’s a preview:

Admission is $3 for ages four and up, with a maximum admission charge of $15 per family.  There are optional activities for kids that require an additional fee and pre-registration; see information on that here.  They are already starting to fill up for these events, so don’t delay if you want to sign up for one of the extra activities.

You can see photos and video from previous events and get much more information on the Living History Days website.

Ask A Realtor: How Much Down Payment Do We Need?

My husband and I are looking to purchase a home before our first child is born this summer. However, we don’t have a lot of savings for a down payment. How much do we actually need for a down payment?
