Denver Deals: Stocks Show, Free Days, and more

I am the deals editor. I don’t often play the Powerball (and I rarely have cash because I can’t track where it goes). But I decided this week to play. I mean really, if it is $1.3 Billion – with a “B” – I may win right? Do you dream about what you will do with your money? That was exactly what I was thinking on my run yesterday. But I realized that Deals are so ingrained in me I would still probably look for a deal – a way to make my money go further. Would you?

Denver Deal: January is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month

I grew up in Steamboat. And yes, we had skiing as our gym class in elementary school. After I had my kiddos I had not gone skiing in a long time mostly due to cost and I wasn’t sure if my kids would love it. Then when my son got his free pass in 5th Grade (back then there was not the Vail Epic School Kids offering it to Kindergartners) – he challenged me to learn snowboarding. The first time was not pretty (I could not figure out how to stop the stupid thing and was toted to the bottom of the ski area strapped to a sled provided by the lovely mountain staff). After that, I did get a lesson (on a cheap deal in January since it is Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month) and the rest is sort of family history. I love snowboarding. I can’t wait to go every year! It is great fun with the family and yes, you can even get DEALS to do it. If you’ve never been….start now!

Denver Deals:Peet’s Coffee, Gigi’s Cupcakes, Liftopia and more.

My son turned 16 this past weekend. (He’s not driving just yet – he will take the test in about a month). I always thought 16 was a monumental birthday and had plans for making his special. He says it is just any old birthday and doesn’t understand the hub-bub. I think this really was his excuse to just to something with friends and not be with mom. So I ask you, what are monumental birthdays in your mind? Do you start making plans when your kids are babies to do something special at 13, buy them a car at 16, take them to Vegas when they turn 21 or is that just me?
