I’m Carrie Isaac, and in 2008 (when nine months pregnant with our third of five children – I blame nesting hormones!), I started Springs Bargains on somewhat of a whim. I’d been a bargain hunter for years, but the blogs I was reading were all tailored toward a national audience – I wanted something that was giving me information about what was happening in Colorado Springs, so I decided to start one!
I was also looking for a way to generate a part-time income while my husband transitioned from working for a local home builder to being a Realtor. Little did I know that God would grow this site little by little until it became a business of its own for several years! My goal is to help Colorado families – including my own – save on the things they have to buy and enable them to enjoy things they might not otherwise afford.
In 2014, I’ve downsized Springs Bargains slightly in order to focus more attention on my new position as Client Services Specialist for Jeremy’s (my husband) real estate business. I’m also doing an increased amount of marketing for our listings, and I’m really excited about my “new” position!
We’ll share a bit of real estate information on Springs Bargains from time to time, but if you want to know more about the real estate side of what we do, please visit our website: Jeremy and Carrie Isaac / The Circa Group at RE/MAX Properties, Inc. You can also read some of Jeremy’s answers to frequently asked real estate questions through the Ask A Realtor section on this site.
Though parts of the blog have downsized a bit, Springs Bargains will continue to be a frequently-updated source for grocery deals and coupon matchups, free and cheap local events, coupons for local retailers, and more.
Jeremy and I have five children, who know to follow up “can we buy this?” with “…when it’s on sale?” In addition to our business endeavors with Circa Group, we enjoy educating our children at home, playing strategy board games, and cooking (and eating!). We recently bought a fixer-upper house in Black Forest and that has naturally taken up residence as our number one “hobby”!
