  1. Send any tips to info@milehighonthecheap.com. We always love tips from readers!

  2. I love, love this format! It saves so much time to not scroll through all the posts. Another suggestion would be to put it all in a calendar format so you can search for a particular day. Thank you do much for this site! We have done so many fun things as a family since we’ve found this site. Tomorrow we are heading to the wings over the Rockys aeromodeling show that we would have had no clue about if it weren’t for this site :) :)

  3. Laura – Thank you for your feedback. It’s not often we get a “thank you” from a reader — even though we know many are very appreciative. We’ll do our best to keep up the good work. All we ask is that you share your passion for our site with your family, friends and co-workers. It only works, if we keep getting bigger and better. -Bryan

    I’ve told several people about your site recently. I used to be signed up a couple of years ago, but somehow I stopped getting emails and forgot about it. Then I stumbled across it again and promptly signed up. Thanks to it, last week I: volunteered at City Park, volunteered at the Horror Film fest, and went to the designer sample giveaway event in Aurora. I can’t wait to read what’s on there every day!
