You’ve probably noticed that there’s been a few changes around here: mainly a new site design, but things have changed up behind the scenes, too. In December, my husband and I decided that I would scale back Colorado Bargains and expand my position with his real estate business. I’ve always done a fair amount of marketing for him, but we’ve now expanded my duties to include some client services, too – and I have to tell you that I am loving it! :)
While quite a bit has changed, Springs Bargains isn’t going anywhere and I’m really excited about its future. It’s just me working solo now (I no longer have assistants), so there are some things that I’ve had to let go, but overall, you’ll generally continue to see the same types of things posted. I’m going back more towards the site’s original purpose, and no longer running it as a stand-along business – thus, it’s now part of my husband’s business, The Circa Group at RE/MAX Properties.
I’ve always focused on publishing local information here, but I’m honing in on that even more now. With less of the running-a-business stuff to take care of, I’m inspired to get back into showing you great, cheap places to go in our beautiful city and develop content like the new local CSAs and food co-ops page – things that I’ve always wanted to do but haven’t had time or inspiration to do them, frankly!
One big change is that now when deals have expired, they will automatically disappear off the main page. So, when the Avalanche deal at Papa John’s is over tonight, it will not appear on the main page all weekend long even though it was valid only on Friday. I hope you’ll like this change – it should make the home page a lot more user-friendly. On the home page, you’ll also find new sections for the weekly grocery deals, any restaurant deals or events that are currently valid, a section with “In the Kitchen” posts, and more.
I know that no one likes change, but I hope that you find the changes are beneficial to you, and any of the things that I’ve had to do away with are made up for with better organization and content. Thanks for continuing to read Springs Bargains – I’ll see you in the comments!
When the Colorado Avalanche win and score three or more, you can get a deal on pizza at Papa John’s the day after the game. Go to PapaJohns.com and place your order using coupon code AVS3 to get 50% off your entire regular-price purchase! If this is like similar deals that Papa John’s does for other sports teams, the code will work only if you have regular-priced items in your cart (no specials).
Since the Avalanche won on Thursday night and scored three, this deal is on for Friday, March 7th.
The Junior League of Colorado Springs will be holding their seventh annual free “Kids in the Kitchen” event this Saturday, March 8th from 10 AM to 1 PM at the Freedom Financial Services Expo Center. They’ll have activities for the family including “healthy food preparation, fitness activities, and other educational opportunities”. You can see photos from last year’s event and get more information on this year’s event on their Facebook page. Thanks, Amanda!
Salvation Army will be having sales this Friday and Saturday: on Friday, March 7th, all coats are 50% off and on Saturday, March 8th, sweaters for the entire family are $0.99! This applies to their store in Colorado Springs at 3955 Tutt Blvd as well as the stores in Greeley, Boulder, Littleton, and Parker. Happy thrifting. :)
I hate scrubbing potatoes. I haven’t met a potato and scrubber combination that actually felt anything but awkward in my hands, until recently when somehow I realized that my favorite dish towels are the perfect thing for scrubbing potatoes!
