Denver Deal: Sam’s Club, Young Americans Bank, Skirt Sports & more
posted by: Gretchen
Thanksgiving and Christmas around our house include a lot of traditions. When and with whom we shop (I love going shopping with my dad – he’s super organized and buys lunch), where we eat our turkey (thanks to my sister I NEVER have to cook. But really, isn’t Thanksgiving just a giant pot luck where you don’t have to guess what is in the mystery casserole?). Where will we sit to open presents around the tree? (Always at my mom and dad’s house) but the tradition I’m most excited to begin this year is one where my kids get to relish Christmas on a neighbor who could most use it. I was inspired by my friend Angie who did this last year. She surprised a friend in need with full Christmas stacked on the front porch – and her kids got to ring the doorbell and run. Yay for traditions! Next week, I’ll give you tips on the other tradition – getting GREAT deals on Black Friday (ads leaking now).

Mr. Broccoli, Clown Dog and a cast of adorable soft toy characters; what a surprise it will be when thousands of these IKEA soft toys will be given out Tuesday at 11 a.m. Downtown Denver to kick off the annual IKEA Soft Toys for Education global campaign (Partner with Children’s Hospital). Keep the soft toy or donates it to a deserving child or charity, this IKEA “Random Act of Life Improvement” is just another way to let everyone know this heart-felt campaign has purpose.
