How to Save at the State Fair

The State Fair of Texas is always fun but if you’re not careful you can break the bank. Ticket prices rise each year and frankly, it’s a waste of money.  We’ve gathered ways for you to save at the fair. Don’t pay full retail for your ticket. Check out savings below:
Opening Day Savings: On opening day (September 30th) bring a bottle of Dasani water or any coke product to the fair admission gates for donation to the North Texas Food Bank and get in for $5 per donation, per person.
Advanced Ticket Sales Online: Why wait in line or wait til the last minute to purchase your ticket? Buy your ticket in advance online and save a few bucks. (You can even buy Food & Ride Coupons early!)
School Tickets: Every year, school districts in the area send children home with FREE admission tickets. Be sure to use and take advantage of them.
Dickie’s Day: On Thursday, October 6, wear and show your Dickies logo clothing item at the staffed tent outside the gate and receive a voucher for free admission (only valid on 10/06/11).
Museum of Nature and Science members: You should receive your free vouchers in the mail (mine came last week).  Your voucher is good for two free adult tickets and up to four children tickets.
McDonald’s Deals: McDonald’s offers $4 off general admission with their State Fair coupons (you can find these on tray liner or bag stuffers) any day of the fair. A free child ticket (with purchase of general admission) coupon is also distributed by McDonald’s.
Ride the Dart: Parking at the State Fair costs $15! Don’t waste your money on parking, that $15 could go towards some yummy fried food!
Dr. Pepper Tuesdays: Every Tuesday, bring an empty Dr Pepper can and enter for $4. Most rides on those Tuesdays (excluding the Thrillway, Texas Star, and selected other attractions) are just 5 coupons.
Canned Food Wednesday:  Make a quick trip to the store for some canned goods. Each visitor who brings 4 cans of food for the North Texas Food Bank will pay $2 admission.
Senior Citizen Discount: Grab your granny and take her to the State Fair on Thursday! Senior Citizens get in for FREE on every Thursday that the fair is open. (Oct. 6, Oct. 13 & Oct. 20)
Movie Theater Freebie: No, don’t throw away your movie stub! Save it and  Present a Cinemark movie theater ticket stub on Thursday and receive FREE admission.
Coca Cola Thursdays: Bring an empty 20 oz. bottle of a Coca-Cola product and enter the Fair for $5 admission on Thursdays.

Cedar Springs Wine Walk Wednesday

So, Sig-O and I hit this up last quarter and it is SUPER fun and SUPER cheap. For $10, you get a glass (to keep, I'm working on creating a full set so I stole Sig-O's last time) and you go around to all the fun stores on the Cedar Springs strip drinking and shopping. Restaurants (Dish - cheap flatbread) and bars ($3 you-call-its at JRs and Sue Ellens) also have fun specials. Word to the wise - don't expect great wine at every stop, but expect to have a really good time. Recommended first stop: Nuvo. You're welcome.

A Blogging Rant and Excuses

Ok, first off, I'm apologizing for being so lax in my blogging duties. Yes, I should have posted more stuff recently, but I haven't. There a several reasons for this.

  1. I was on vacation. Yes, a real vacation. And you're welcome, because I'm the one who brought back this nice cool weather from Colorado. I didn't work on vacation. I didn't blog on vacation. I didn't even turn my laptop on while I was on vacation. And it was freaking awesome.
  2. There haven't been any really awesome deals that I've seen that I think are worth sharing. Sure, I could share with you the crappy lose weight, liposuction, botox, get your hair done, mediocre food deal, but that's not fun. I don't even like reading those, so I choose not to pass those along to you. You feel jipped because I haven't been posting, when really I'm doing you a favor by not posting junk for you to read.
  3. I have to work. Blogging does not pay the bills. Just about every blog you read, minus those really professional ones or ones with a huge following, is done by someone who does something else to actually generate income. We don't blog for the money or the spotlight, we blog b/c we think we have something to share with you. Do your fave bloggers a favor and click on an ad or two on their sites if it's something that interests you. Yes, ads are annoying, but it's really the only way that your fave bloggers will make money from a website.
  4. You don't talk to me. Every now and then I get a comment, and that's swell, but generally I end up feeling like I'm just posting to the magical internet and some randoms find the page. So follow me, comment when you want to and tell me what you actually want to know about. Otherwise I'm just guessing.
Ok, speaking of that #4 thing, I have to work. I promise to be more diligent about posting, but don't blame me when I'm on vacation. You should try it. Without your computer. You'll thank me.
