Seek Out Local Deals

I’ve been so busy running around on adventures that they I have hardly taken a moment to talk about any of July’s Resolutions.

If you are an adventure seeker , on a budget, like me.  You will find it very costly find entertainment for the whole family and if you try to go “bare bones” you end up missing a lot of the fun because let’s face it… not much is free anymore.

So this month I set out to find local deals.  

I’m not setting out to become the next “Crazy Coupon Dude” but just making an effort to find deals or discounts on activities that I or my family would normally enjoying.

Let’s start with the  “big boys”, Groupon and Living Social.

I was able to grab some really nice discounts just this month alone.

I just check it once a day and look out for the coupon codes, I also suggest downloading the apps for special discounts.

I was about to get the Darien Lake passes at half off.  A $50 savings.

4 tickets to the AMazing Mirror Maze for $7 with coupon code.  Not my favorite thing but what a deal.

Patti has been bugging me to det her tickets to the Russian Nutcracker for 5 years but they were always too expensive.  Bamm…2 Decent Seats for $118 down from $180.

Even Tickets for the Great NYS Fair were cheaper than the normal advance ticket sales.

I’m researching a nice get away over the winter on Groupon (Always read the fine print)

I always find use in those “enjoy the city” coupon books that you can find almost any major city.    Apart from coupons to your favorite local restaurants and service providers,best-local-deal-apps you can get lots of “frees” to local zoos, mini golf, bowling, and other activities your do all the time at full price.

Are you a Verizon wireless customer?  Did you know that they give you reward points every month that you can use towards Gift CArds and local restaurants and activities?

I have so many that I don’t know what to do with.

I know that are so many other out there that I use from time to time.

Stub-hub – for tickets to sporting events

Brad’s Deals – shopping

Amazon Prime – can’t live with out.

What else is out there that you use yourself to find great deals?

I was near the end of 2016 when I realized that my life was totally out of balance. I was 30 and I was working my life away. I did not have strong relationships with my wife, family, or friends. It was around this time that I came across THE HAPPINESS PROJECT by Gretchen Rubin. It was then that I decided to launch my own year long project towards personal happiness for the entire year of 2017.
