Denver Deal: RAFT, Odesseo, Starbucks Treat Receipt, Sports Optical and More

Denver Deal: RAFT, Odesseo,  Starbucks Treat Receipt, Sports Optical and More

Like many of the Denver-area kids, my kids start school this week. We have done the prerequisite shopping (clothes, supplies and great lunch snacks).  I try very hard to budget during the summer months so I don’t get slammed with all the fees at once. However, the one that just drives me sort of nuts is the school photos. The photos are definitely better than they were when I went to school but they are still just…school photos. Not only are they not the best photos – but they are expensive for what they are. I recently heard about this Colorado Company called PhotoGava – who will take the photos you really want to display (the non-school ones) and put them on fiberboard. The prints are beautiful and crisp images I will proudly hang on my wall but I will likely begrudgingly display that awful school photo too. Some things are just a rite of passage. 

Sports Optical MHM Reader Deal
The kind folks at Sports Optical (4337 Tennyson St. Denver, CO 80212) are offering Mile High Mamas readers $50 off a pair of glasses with Rx – or $25 off a pair of non prescription. For real! No catch! My son, who is going into high school this year has asked for Oakley sunglasses for his Christmas gift – I will be heading over to SportOptical to snap up a pair for him. If you are looking for something for yourself OR your kiddos – they will fit you with your prescription too!

Children’s Consignment Sales
Twice a year, Mile High Mamas does a round-up detailing Colorado’s popular 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 percent below retail. This week’s sales: Mothers of Multiples Society Sale (Aug. 16) and Just Between Friends of Aurora (Aug. 14-17).
