Every Wednesday, check out these deals to help your frugal family with all the money-saving tips around town.
1. Marin Spin Co.
Deal: It’s too wet to ride on the road (unless you're really hardy!), but it’s dry inside. And with only $180 for unlimited classes for two whole months, it is a deal you definitely don’t want to miss out. This is a fabulous cardio workout that will be gentle on your joints and great for your body.
Visit their website or call Andy at 342-5118.
Good Through: Don’t wait, because they just opened up and this deal can’t last for long!
Deal: Join as a member for only $75 for use of all the equipment and just about every class (Sunday yoga not included). Another great way to stay out of the rain and keep dry, but get fit too!
Good Through: This deal is only good through to the end of February.
Deal: Here’s a mouth-watering meal: California Artichokes are only .98 cents each, steam one up to go with lamb shanks that are also on sale for only $3.48 a pound, soak up the juices with LaBrea baguettes for only $1.98 and sip a beautiful bottle of BV Coastal Cabernet Sauvignon for $6.98.
