If you haven’t heard of Goldstar yet, they are an awesome site that offers discount tickets to events, concerts and performances nationwide.  They have a HUGE selection of venues and events to choose from and this is a great way to have a night or afternoon out without breaking the bank.

One of my favorite events that is available right now is a group trip from Seattle to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest!  There are three dates to choose from in October and you will take a bus from the Experience Music Project to Leavenworth for a day trip.  Spend the entire day eating amazing German food and drinking delicious German beer (or a million other kinds of beer), shop in the fun stores and just enjoy the shenanigans without worrying about how you’re going to drive home OR spending a fortune on a hotel room.

We LOVE Oktoberfest.  There are a million people to watch and chat with, lots of traditional German entertainment and SO much more.  The town of Leavenworth is Bavarian-themed and a must-see if you live in the state of Washington.  Regular price for this event is $130, but you can snag a ticket through Goldstar for just $65!

If you aren’t interested in this events, you can still sign up and receive a weekly email with events in your area.  Just enter your email address and zip code and you can easily customize your preferences.

Bill’s Berry Farm in Grandview, WA is hosting their Blueberry Daze Festival on Friday July 3rd and Saturday July 4th.  The festival runs from 9 AM to 5 PM each day and admission is free.  Parking is FREE on Friday, but there is a $5 fee on Saturday so best to carpool if you can.

Bring the whole family out to pick blueberries, blackberries or raspberries, listen to live music, enjoy a BBQ lunch or freshly made blueberry donuts, stroll through tons of different antique vendors or take the kids to the petting zoo.  My kids LOVE Bill’s.  When I told them we were going this year, all they talked about were the donuts.

Their blueberries are just $2.50 per pound.  Per ounce, this would make the regular grocery store size (6 oz) just $.94 each.  Fantastic price!  Raspberries and blackberries are $3/pound and peaches are just $1 per pound.

For more information and directions, check out Bill’s Berry Farm website.

If you  have been excited to try the new Amendment XXI in Kennewick at the bottom of Columbia Center Drive, you will not find a better time!  For just $10 right now over at Mel’s Local Deals, you can snag a $20 voucher for food and drinks at the fun new pub.  Amendment XXI is locally owned and operated and is designed after the amendment that repealed Prohibition.  The atmosphere is very laid back and the decor is AWESOME.  This is a great place to meet up with friends, watch the game or play a few rounds of pool or shuffleboard with friends.

About a month ago, my husband and I had a day without kids to celebrate our anniversary and had plans to try out a few fun new places in Tri-Cities (reminiscent of pre-kid days where we actually could spontaneously do things!).  We watched the Mariners game at Uncle Sam’s and then headed to Amendment XXI for a drink.  And never left.

11246175_10205776246799692_1810133884235211918_n

I had a Highball (whiskey, ginger beer and ginger liqueur) that was to die for.  And then I had approximately 17 more.  We invited some friends down to play shuffleboard with us and then met a great group of guys to continue the game.  My favorite part about Amendment XXI is how the place is laid out.  There are very different areas of the pub, so if you just want to meet up with friends and have no interest in games, you can hang out in the main area for a quieter place to chat or even outside.  It’s just a cool layout.

These also have a great menu and some really innovative drinks, with several local beer and wine options.

These deals are pulled directly from Spotted Fox, so you can rest assured that your purchase is secure and the deals are totally legit.  Plus, you have the customer service of Spotted Fox in  your corner if you have any problems at all with your vouchers.

Click here to purchase.  Please note: You must purchase an entree with alcohol to be able to use your voucher.  Promotional value good through end of September, 2015.

If you aren’t interested in this deal, make sure to enter your email address to be notified when new deals become available so you don’t miss out! You can also enter your email address in the box below.

I’m SO EXCITED to tell you about a project that has been in the works for several months now.  This Beautiful Frugal Life has partnered with Spotted Fox Northwest to bring you Mel’s Local Deals, the best deals in the Tri-Cities on entertainment, eating out, kids’ activities and much more.  These will be deals directly from Spotted Fox, so you can rest assured that your purchase is secure and the deals are totally legit.  Plus, you have the customer service of Spotted Fox in  your corner if you have any problems at all with your vouchers.

I LOVE Spotted Fox and have been promoting (and buying) their deals for years.  Our family has used vouchers for restaurants, bowling, golf, coffee and much, much more.  It is such an easy way to save big on things you would already do or my personal favorite, try out some awesome  new businesses and restaurants in the area.  Spotted Fox does a great job of featuring new and upcoming companies in our area and their discounted vouchers are an awesome way to try them out at a fraction of the cost.

Some of the deals available as I type this:

You may be asking why you can’t just go to Spotted Fox and buy your deals?  I’ll be outrageously transparent here.  When you buy your deals through Mel’s Local Deals, I will receive a commission on the purchase amount.  Your cost and your vouchers will not change at all, but by putting in the work to promote the deals, I will receive a small kick back.  These commissions help me offset some of the costs to run This Beautiful Frugal Life and help a little in paying me for my time.  Your support makes this site a possibility!  And as I am a huge fan of Spotted Fox, this is a win win for us all.

Click here to check out Mel’s Local Deals.  Make sure to enter your email address to be notified when new deals become available so you don’t miss out!  You can also enter your email address in the box below.

Just a reminder that this service is still available for sign ups!  First delivery is Wednesday May 27th.

Local Pumpkin is an awesome local program that is in its second year here in Tri-Cities.  They deliver a weekly produce box to your doorstep filled with fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, sourced from farms that use clean farming practices or are certified organic.

How it works:

  • Sign up for a FREE Local Pumpkin account
  • Choose the produce box that you are most likely to order each week (this can be changed at a later date)
  • Pay a one-time box usage fee of $18
  • Your bank account will be charged each week
  • Your box will be delivered to your doorstep Wednesday afternoons!

You will receive an email each week detailing what will come in your box.  You have the option to change your box OR swap out an item from your box.  You can also add items from their store like fresh asparagus, frozen organic blueberries, farm fresh eggs, local meats and more.  Wouldn’t it be amazing to have half your groceries delivered to your door?

A few important notes: You can put your delivery on hold if you are leaving town or going on vacation.  You can also choose the option to have a produce box delivered every other week if once per week is too much.

Box Options:

  • Regular Harvest Box – Conventional fruits/veggies to feed 2-4 people ($25 per week)
  • Large Harvest Box – Conventional fruits/veggies to feed 4-6 people ($32 per week)
  • Regular Organic Box – Organic fruits/veggies to feed 2-4 people ($28 per week)
  • Large Organic Box – Organic fruits/veggies to feed 4-6 people ($37 per week)

Check out Local Pumpkin’s seasonal list for ideas on what kinds of fruits and vegetables you will be receiving.

We used Local Pumpkin last year as a family and were REALLY impressed.  The boxes were well stocked with very fresh and delicious produce.  They also did a great job of providing recipes and ideas for using produce that you may not be familiar with.  We love that this is a business owned by a local family, sourcing food from local farmers.  Win win!  I met with Cathy and John Franklin earlier this spring and they are a lovely couple and both very passionate about bringing healthy to your door and connecting us all as a community.

The best perk is not having to make as many trips to the grocery store.  We are SO busy during the spring and summer and sometimes (okay, all the time) dragging the kids into the store is the absolute LAST thing I want to do.  Plus, it saves me money on impulse buys.  I literally can not buy anything extra when the food is sitting on my porch.

Click here to sign up or to check out their program.  Use promo code P15 at checkout to save $15 off your first box.  Please let me know if you have any questions!  If you feel so inclined, add my name or the blog name into the Referred By box.
