Denver Deal: IHOP; Ski Deals, Krispy Kreme, Color Run and More

Denver Deal: IHOP; Ski Deals, Krispy Kreme, Color Run and More
 I got a new snowboard coat, pants, base layers (the “long johns”) and sweaters from Nils Sportswear. Their stuff is super luxe – but I will tell you I feel like a million dollars when I’m wearing that outfit (and I actually notice that people look at me on the slopes – which may be an unfortunate outcome as I’m not that good). Do you feel different or walk taller when you are wearing something special? When was the last time you got out of your comfy mom clothes? When was the last time that you spent some money on yourself – just something that is special and will make you walk taller – even if that kiddo is weighing you down? Tell me what makes you feel good.
Free Days
In addition to the always free venues like Hudson Gardens and the Aurora History Museum on Tuesday, March 4 you can also check out the Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield & Children’s Museum of Denver (4 p.m . to 8 p.m.) for FREE!
Children’s Consignment Sales
Thousands of shoppers find bargains on kids’ clothing for newborn-preteen, toys, strollers, furniture, baby equipment, books, shoes, maternity items and more…all at 50-90% below retail.

IHOP Free Pancakes
IHOP is hosting their annual fundraiser this Tuesday, March 4. Get a short stack of pancakes for free. They simply ask that you make a donation. The money goes to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Walmart to Go
Most of the time I write about saving money or FREE events – but I have recently found something that saves me TIME – and probably some money too as my kids are not bugging me to buy things I didn’t plan to purchase) with the WalMart To Go. Now you can order fresh groceries and every day essentials online and have them delivered to your door in temperature-controlled trucks. Or, pick  them up for FREE at the store and have them loaded into the car. Plus, there is no add on fees – the prices are as they are in the store!
Spring Break Ski Deals
Are you looking for something to do for Spring Break? What about vising one of the ski areas. There are some great deals out there. One place to get inexpensive tickets is at (they have great deals here in Colorado and also other states if you are wanting to go somewhere out of state). At Keystone kids ski FREE with a two night stay (plus at Keystone there is a cool snow fort atop Dercum Mountain).
Krispy Kreme
I love daylight savings for more reasons than an extra hour of sunshine. Krispy Kreme is offering a FREE donut this Sunday, March 9 in celebration!
The Color Run
I have seen several of my friends post photos at the end of the Color Run (also known as the Happiest 5K on the planet). You know the run where they go 5K – start out with a white outfit and end up looking totally cool because they have been color bombed through the race. I said that I would do that this year. And found a discount – you can get the same discount and run with me! Save $5 off their registration (COLOR5OFF). The Kaleidoscope Tour 2014 has THREE stops in Colorado including Copper Mountain (April 19), Denver (July 19) and Colorado Springs (September 6).
