Save $2 on Admission to Blooms & Berries

by Katie on September 22, 2017

Fall on the Farm offers a fun-packed day for the entire family at Blooms & Berries Farm Market in Loveland, Ohio. Activities include a 30-minute hayride around the farm and through the woods that stops in the pumpkin patch, a 7-acre corn maze that features a who-done-it game called “The Great Migration Mystery,” a children’s play area, the bucking cow train, farm animals, and more.

Fall on the Farm is a great way to spend a beautiful autumn weekend with your family, making memories that will last a lifetime. When you pull up to the 61-acre farm, the first thing you’ll notice is their big, beautiful barn. If you look closely, you’ll notice that the truss under the front porch is made from reclaimed barn wood that is over 150 years old. This speaks to the tradition and heritage that is at the heart of the Blooms & Berries Farm. The front of the barn is decorated with beautiful flowers and pumpkins which makes a beautiful backdrop for family pictures.

Speaking of pictures, if you visit during the first week or two of the season, the Blooms and Berries 2-acre sunflower field should be in bloom (please call ahead of time to see if it’s peak bloom time).

The Blooms and Berries Farm is geared toward family. For just $8 per person on weekdays and $11 per person on the weekends, you’ll have an all-access pass to the fun activities mentioned above.  If you visit on a Toddler Tuesday, you’ll be able to enjoy story time at 1 p.m. as well as half price admission for kids ages 2-4 with a paying adult.

Don’t forget to stop in at the market barn and try out the fresh-pressed apple cider and caramel apples.  Plus, new this year, there’s fudge, cookies and apple crisps.

Fall On The Farm 2017 runs from September 23rd through October 31st. You can check out their site for current hours and hayride times.

Plus, my readers can save $2 off any regular priced weekday admission (Monday through Friday) to Blooms and Berries Fall on the Farm!  You can print off this coupon which can be used for up to 4 people.

My $6.37 Walgreens Shopping Trip

by Katie on September 22, 2017

Although I don’t necessarily stop by Walgreens every week, it’s definitely my go-to store for the best deals on toilet paper, and oftentimes, personal care items as well.  I also usually purchase my almonds at Walgreens since they typically have the best deal when they’re on sale.

Here’s what I found this week:

2 Fructis Pure Clean Shampoo – $3.50 each (used $4/2 coupon and $2/2 Walgreens coupon)
1 Nice! Soft Bath Tissue – $3.99 (used $1/1 coupon)
2 Expo Dry Erase Marker Packs – $0.99 with raincheck (used $1/1 coupon)
1 Barilla Ready Pasta – $1.99 (used $1.50/1 catalina coupon)

My total with tax was $6.37.
