Tacoma Beer & Blues Festival: Discounted Tickets Available!


My hometown Tacoma is having a Beer & Blues Festival on Saturday, August 9th from 1 – 9pm, down on Broadway Street. Here’s a bit about this festival:

Blues music, beer and bites… it’s the recipe for the perfect block party and you’ll find it at the second-annual Brew Five Three: Tacoma’s Beer & Blues Festival. More than 30 Washington state brewers join forces with local food trucks as a lineup of Pacific Northwest musicians fill the air with good vibes and sweet riffs. Recent The Voice finalist Stephanie Anne Johnson is on the bill, as well as rootsy rockers the Marky Riley Trio and Tacoma’s own “swampabilly” legends Junkyard Jane. With an admission that includes 10 beer sample tokens (plus a collectible tasting glass), you’ll have plenty to sip on as you wander blissfully through Brew Five Three, the ultimate outdoor summer hangout.

Sound like a fun outing with friends or maybe a date night idea? If so, I’d encourage you to buy your tickets through Goldstar. Right now, you’ll pay just $23 per person ($18 + a $5 service fee) versus the $30+ cost at the door. While it’s pretty obvious, I should note that this event is for those 21 and over only.

For more information or to purchase your tickets, head to Goldstar.

Incidentally – if this even isn’t your thing or location – I still encourage you to check out Goldstar! I like to think of Goldstar as your daily deal site of events. Enjoy discounts of half off or more on popular concerts, sporting events, excursions, plays, comedy and more. They also offer discounted tickets for locations around the country. To get started, head to Goldstar.


Safeway: 4 Boxes of Pebbles Cereal + Gallon Milk for $5 Starting Sunday


In this weekend’s Sunday paper (July 27th), there will be a $1/2 Pebbles Cereal or Treat coupon. You can use this at Safeway where there are a couple Catalina coupon offers running for Pebbles Cereal.

Here are some details and instructions for maximizing this offer.

Milk Promotion

Starting 7/23, when you buy (4) Post Cereal, you will get a FREE gallon of milk instantly! (This excludes organic; limit 1 per customer.)

Pebbles Catalina

Post Pebbles, 6 oz. or larger, Treats and Cereal (through 8/10) 

Buy (2) and receive a $1 coupon good for your next shopping trip
Buy (3) and receive a $2 coupon good for your next shopping trip
Buy (4) and receive a $3 coupon food for your next shopping trip

If you are unfamiliar with the term or concept of Catalinas, let me break it down for you. When you purchase the designated items in the designated quantities, you will receive a coupon at checkout. In this case, the coupon is just a dollar amount that can be used on just about anything in the store.

Scenario Idea

Here’s the best way to work this deal.

Buy (4) boxes of Pebbles Cereal @ $2.50 each
Buy (1) Gallon of Milk (remember, organic is excluded) 
Use (2) $1/2 Pebbles coupons from 7/27 SmartSource
Receive the milk FREE instantly for buying 4 boxes
Pay at the register: $8 for 4 boxes of cereal + milk
Receive a $3 Catalina for buying 4 boxes
Bottom line: like getting everything for just $5!

Want to do this deal? Just make sure to do it by Tuesday, July 29th as that is the last day of the milk promotion and this stated sale price. Want to do this deal earlier than Sunday? Pick up a Sunday Advance copy of the Seattle Times or if you’re local – the Federal Way Mirror – on Saturday. You could also do this deal without coupons and your total would work out to $7 after Catalina and the milk promotion (which is still not a bad deal in my book).

If you are planning a trip out, make sure to check out the rest of the deals happening at Safeway this week, including whole fryer chicken for $0.88/lb!

Thanks, The Centsable Shoppin!

Late July Garden Update (AKA I’m feeling lazy, but stuff is growing in spite of myself)

I don’t know what it is – but this summer, I’m finding I just don’t have a lot of time/energy/patience for my garden! Maybe it’s because I spent a lot time earlier this year on gardening projects (like my grow light setup and my slope garden project) or maybe it’s just because I’m being lazy. I’m seriously considering a “lazy garden” next year of varieties that basically need zero care.

In spite of myself, stuff has been progressing right along and I thought I’d share a few photos with you.

DSCN8305 (600x800)I love that these small sunflowers opened! My daughter planted these in a small pot at school and brought them home. I put them in a windowsill and then later transferred them out. It usually seems like projects like these never make it much past the windowsill!

DSCN8306 (600x800)We grew these miniature pumpkins last year (you can see what they look like at harvest HERE) and loved them. They are easy to grow and don’t sprawl to unruly lengths like your typical pumpkins. I grow them towards the edge of my planter boxes and let them creep out. We do have a few pumpkins that are maturing, as you can see.

DSCN8307 (596x800)Our tomato plants are coming up nicely. We don’t have any red ones yet, but I have a couple I suspect will be there soon. My garden is partially shady, so it always seems my stuff just takes a bit longer than most to mature.

Amazon Prime: Choose No-Rush Shipping for a Free $1 Amazon Instant Video Credit

Amazon Prime boxes

One of my favorite benefits of having an Amazon Prime membership is the free two-day shipping on almost everything Amazon sells. But if you’re willing and able to wait a little longer, try choosing the free No-Rush Shipping program for Prime members.

Select No-Rush Shipping at checkout and you’ll receive a free $1 Amazon Instant Video credit toward the purchase or rental of a digital movie or TV show. Your credit will be automatically applied to your account once the package ships. Certain Amazon Instant Video titles are excluded, including HBO titles.

So instead of taking 2 days to ship, you’ll receive your order within 5-7 business days (totally doable for those of you who are used to free Super Saver Shipping).

Apparently No-Rush Shipping has been around for forever, but they periodically change the reward that they give for choosing No-Rush Shipping instead of 2-day shipping. This is a limited time offer, but I’m not sure how long it will last. (Some other websites state October 31, 2014 as the end date.)

Prime members: Have you ever chosen No-Rush Shipping instead of 2-day shipping?
