Free Classic Movie at Black Box Theatre on Friday

Black Box Theatre is offering free classic movies on select Friday nights (when there’s not another event already scheduled)!  This Friday, August 22nd, they’ll be showing Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest starting at 7 PM.  Admission is free, but if you want to make sure you get a spot, you can reserve your tickets here.

You can find out more about this event on their website or call (719) 330-1798.  The Black Box Theatre is located at 1367 Pecan Street.


Buy 1 Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with Cheese, Get One for a Penny on Thursday

McDonald’s is celebrating the start of the Broncos season with a special deal on Thursday, August 21st: buy one Big Mac or Quarter Pounder with Cheese, get one for a penny!  You can see the advertisement on their Twitter profile here, and while it doesn’t say this, I’m guessing it’s probably valid at participating locations only.

Also, it looks like they are doing Egg McMuffins or Big Macs for $1.00 the day after the Broncos win (see the info on the Denver Broncos site).  I’ll keep you posted as to when this deal (and other Broncos deals at Arby’s, Papa John’s, and Red Robin) are valid as the Broncos play.


Organic Figs on Sale at Whole Foods, Friday-Sunday

I have no clue if this is a good deal or not – I don’t even know that I’ve ever had a fresh fig! – but wanted to give you a heads up that Whole Foods will have organic figs (pint) $3.00 this Friday-Sunday, August 22-24.


Safeway Weekly Deals (8/20-8/26): Fruit Snacks $0.49, Smuckers $0.99, Hidden Valley Ranch $1.49 + More Deals

There are quite a few good deals at Safeway this week when you combined their in-ad/digital store coupons with printable or insert coupons: Hidden Valley Ranch for $1.49, Kraft Mayo or Miracle Whip for $1.49, Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks for $0.49, and quite a few more good coupon deals.  They also have raspberries for $0.99.

Sprouts Weekly Deals (8/20-8/27): Grape Tomatoes, Organic Strawberries, Palisade Peaches on Sale

The top deals at Sprouts this week include Palisade peaches for $1.48/lb – not as cheap as they were on the weekend sale a couple of weeks ago, but still a pretty great price for local peaches.  I finally got around to doing something with the peaches I bought on that weekend sale (yes, they were more than ripe!) and made Honey-Sweetened Peach-Vanilla Jam and am in the process of making some peach butter.  The jam is really good!

I noticed that Sprouts has changed the shelf price on their sausage from the butcher counter from $3.99/lb to $4.99/lb and they definitely haven’t been doing as many $2.99/lb sales lately.  I hope they do one soon (there’s no $2.99/lb sale this week) because I really liked being able to just throw the main dish on the grill with no prep and we haven’t done that nearly as much with the price increase and fewer sales.

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?
