carrie isaacWelcome to Springs Bargains, a service of our real estate business, Circa Real Estate Group! 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.

Free Admission to the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center, Children’s Museum on Sunday

The second Sunday of the month – that’s this Sunday, February 14th – is a free admission event at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center and Buell Children’s Museum in Pueblo!  Find out more about the museums here.

We publish a monthly list of free admission days – check out February’s list here, and watch for March’s list soon.

King Soopers Deals (2/10-2/16): New Mega Event with $0.49 Pasta + Cheap Cereal, Soup, A1, Mustard, and More

Time for a new Buy X, Save $X event at King Soopers, with great deals on everything from cereal to deodorant. Here are some tips for keeping track of your items – most of us are going to want to stock up on quite a few items this time around!

This week’s Free Friday Download is for a free chocolate bar – so was last week’s! Details on both are below.

Join Airbnb, Save $20 off a $75 Stay

Thank to Anthony for this tip: you can get $20 off a $75 Airbnb stay when you sign up through a friend’s link (that one is mine)!  Or if you’re already a member, sign in to your account and go to Invite Friends to get your own referral link for your friends – they’ll get the $20 when they sign up and so will you, as the referrer.

Airbnb is a popular site to rent rooms or houses – it’s similar to VRBO (Vacation Rentals By Owner) if you’re more familiar with that one.

Sprouts Deals (2/10-2/17): Organic Cauliflower for $0.88/lb

While they’ll go to half this price during the summer, red grapes are $1.88/lb which is a fantastic price at this time of year! And I think the $2.99/lb price for white quinoa at Sprouts starting Wednesday is a great deal (it’s $4.50/lb at Sam’s Club).

Safeway Deals (2/10-2/16): Great Deals on Teddy Grahams, Apple Sauce Pouches

In addition to their normal weekly sales, Safeway is doing a $5 Friday sale this week, and it includes two-packs of cornish hens for $5.00, Nabisco Teddy Grahams for $1.17, and Tree Top apple sauce pouches for $0.33 after coupon (and still cheaper than WalMart or Sam’s even without a coupon).

Ask A Realtor: Is A Permit Necessary?

We’re finishing our basement and replacing an old water heater with a larger one. I know a water heater and basement are technically supposed to be permitted, but we don’t see the need for paying for a permit.
