Deals: Epic SchoolKids, free dental and more

Does the curse of the overscheduled weekend happen to you too? I made plans several months ago to be out of town this weekend. And of course, it seems like I’m missing so much this weekend – from fun stuff to do in town to my friend’s annual Big A** BBQ. Is it just me or do others have this same issue? I can have a weekend where I don’t seem to have much going on – but on the one weekend when I have something planned everyone else plans that weekend too?!

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% below retail. This week’s sales: Aug. 23-26- Just Between Friends of Longmont at Boulder County Fairgrounds in Longmont.

Ski Deals. Fall is such a great season for the mountains – probably my favorite time of year there. You can still hike and see beautiful leaves turning. But it also turns my attention to skiing. Fall is also the time to snag deals that will set you up for the whole ski season! Vail Resorts (Vail, Beaver Creek, Keystone and Breckenridge) are once again offering Epic SchoolKids a FREE pass for kids Kindergarten through 5th grade. (Available for Colorado, Utah and Whistler/Blackcomb). SKI REX is the region’s largest pre-season sale of ski stuff (equipment and apparel). The event will take place at all six Colorado Ski & Golf Locations (although I saw a sign over the one near Park Meadows that called it Epic Mountain Gear) starting August 31.

Front Row Tickets. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to be sitting by my computer waiting for tickets to go on sale when I want to go to events. That is why I love Front Row Tickets.  Pretty much any show I want to go to (or sporting event – GO BUFFS!) is available on the site.
