Thanks so much for tuning into my Your Life Arizona segment about great deals on fall decorations, fall decor, and more to make us all more festive for less.  If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll join the totally FREE Alicia’s Deals e-mail list (unsubscribe at anytime).  Please tell a friend about my site too so we can all “live life better for less” together.

Fall is here and there are so many deals to help us celebrate the season for less!

I LOVE holiday inflatables! I think they give a great bang for the buck and they are crazy easy to set up.

Head over here where you’ll find an 8 foot long inflatable pumpkin patch on sale for $49.98 at Home Depot, usually $62.98!

I’m also really excited about this 4 foot inflatable turkey for $32.98. Thanksgiving is my holiday and I’m just thinking of all of the photo opportunities with the kids on Thanksgiving!

If you’re looking for a fun fall festival, think about checking out the Tempe Sister Cities Four Peaks Oktoberfest. It’s going on October 11th-13th at Tempe Town Lake and admission is totally FREE! Be sure to enjoy a bratwurst and check out the fun areas for the kiddos. I have two personal Oktoberfest stories…first I went to Germany as a student ambassador in high school with Sister Cities from the money raised from this event…if you know a high school Junior in Tempe tell them to apply, you can find more information here! Second I ran into my husband at this Oktoberfest nineteen years ago. I am a big fan for life.

One of my favorite places to find unique Halloween costumes is thrift stores. I especially love Savers, they have locations around town and the donations of clothing and household items benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arizona, an organization near and dear to my heart. Join the Super Savers club here and get a coupon for $3 off your $10 purchase or mark your calendar for October 14th when clothing will be half off. Thrifting can be so much fun (and much easier on your wallet)! The treasures you’ll find!

If you’re already planning your Halloween night, make sure to add a trip to Krispy Kreme to your trick or treat schedule. Anyone who comes in with a costume on gets a FREE doughnut, head over here for more information.

For the Real Housewives Fans I was THRILLED to get to meet Tamra and Eddie Judge on set! So much fun!

Enjoy and happy fall!

I found some great fall break freebies and deals that promise lots of fun without breaking the bank!

Use your library card to get free admissions to museums all over the valley with the Act 1 Culture Pass. You can actually “check out” two free admissions to fun places like Arcosanti, the Heard Museum, the Phoenix Art Museum, the Irish Cultural Center, and many other museums you may have never been to. You can go online to your library and see availability then go “check out” admission. We used the Culture Passes all the time when my kids were little and I truly believe they are an excellent resource, head over here for more information. It’s amazing how much you’ll learn!

The State Fair is happening and Fall Break is an excellent time to check it out! Every Wednesday we can all get free admission from noon-6 PM when we bring in six cans of non perishable food for St. Mary’s Food Bank (note that’s 6 cans per person). If you can’t go then, head over here to find discount tickets. You’ll save almost half off what you’d pay at the gate and you won’t have to stand in line. If you have kids 5-14 make sure you have them participate in the Read and Ride Program! Fill out a sheet you’ll find here with three books your child has read and they’ll get three FREE carnival rides!

I know we all love tacos and lucky for us the Arizona Taco Festival happens during Fall Break this year! Head over here to find discounted Sunday tickets to the event happening at West World in Scottsdale. You’ll pay $9 instead of $18.33 and keep in mind that tickets can sell out at anytime. Kids under 12 get in free and there are tons of tacos to be had! I checked April’s weather report and the days should be beautiful!

Bowling is so much fun, especially at Bowlero! Head over here to save up to 57% off bowling and shoe rental at your choice of eight locations all over the valley. You must buy the deal 24 hours before you plan to use it. This could be a great place to meet up with friends or enjoy a family date night!

Enjoy your fall break!

HOT! Score Tickets As Low as $22.50 Plus Fees to See Ballet Arizona’s Amazing Version of The Nutcracker (Usually $45-$169)!


Today great things come to those who plan ahead! We can all head over here to score tickets for as low as $22.50 plus fees on Goldstar to see Ballet Arizona’s amazing version of The Nutcracker at Phoenix Symphony Hall.

“None other than The New York Times calls Ballet Arizona’s stunning annual version of The Nutcracker “one of the three finest” in the entire country. That probably has a little something to do with the 100k Swarovski crystals sprinkled throughout the production and the stunning choreography of Ib Andersen, the company’s acclaimed artistic director. You’ve also got live accompaniment by the Phoenix Symphony and a cast of 150 performers adding to the spectacle as well.

From the Event Organizer

Celebrate the joy and wonder of the holidays with Ib Andersen’s The Nutcracker. Follow Clara’s wintry adventures as she battles mischievous mice and charms the Sugar Plum Fairy. Ballet Arizona’s The Nutcracker is the best way to celebrate the holidays with friends and family!”

Goldstar has lots of great deals on other events too..and a Goldstar account is totally FREE (like Groupon just for tickets).
