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.

Free Storytimes, Workshops, and Classes for Kids This Month

There’s a variety of places that do a free or cheap event for kids every month: from crafts to storytime to cooking classes, be sure to check out the following places for their events that are going on this month.

And of course, the Pikes Peak Library District has dozens of events every month – you can view their calendar here.

If you know of other places that offer monthly events for kids that are free or very cheap, please do comment and let me know or email me here!


50% Off Canvas Prints at FedEx Office Stores

A reader sent in this tip: FedEx Office stores are offering 50% off canvas prints right now!  This includes 16×20, 18×24, and 24×36 prints, and the sale is valid through March 2nd.  Go here for pricing and to start and order.

A funny thing happened the other day at a different office store – Jeremy had our renovation blueprints printed, but right before his order they’d printed something on canvas, and forgot to change the paper in the printer, and so our blueprints got printed on canvas!  It wasn’t like they were going to be able to do anything else with them, so they let him have them for the cheapo price of blueprints and Jeremy thinks they’re pretty cool. :) (Though they weren’t quite the finals, unfortunately!)


Albertsons at Cheyenne Mountain & 115 Going Out of Business: 40-60% Off Right Now

Naomi let me know that the Albertsons at Cheyenne Mountain Blvd. and Highway 115 is going out of business, and as of today, the store is 40-60% off.  They are not honoring the regular sale ad.  Naomi said their last day is supposed to be March 12th, and I would imagine the sales will get even better as that gets closer!


Free* Pancakes at IHOP on Tuesday

IHOP’s annual National Pancake Day celebration will take place on Tuesday, March 3rd.  Stop by a participating location and make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network to get a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes – no other purchase required!

I believe that this takes place all day long, so you can go for breakfast, lunch, supper, or snack!  Here’s their official website.
