In my former life (you know the one where we had 2 solid incomes, no diapers to buy and a savings account that did not gather cobwebs!), my husband and I would easily drop $75 for dinner and a movie on a Friday night date. GASP! It is hard for me to even read that sentence now. What a naive little spender I was!
Obviously things have changed a bit over the years, and this is what our Friday night looks like now:
$1 Redbox Rental (use the codes DVDONME or BREAKROOM to get a 1 night rental FREE)
Jolly Time Popcorn I got for free with doublers at Albertsons last month.
Yoplait Frozen Smoothies I bought for about $.75 at Winco last week using this coupon $1.25/1. You can also use the $1/1 from coupons.com.
Total price for a fun family night: $1.75 (Just $.75 if you get the Redbox rental for free)!
What frugal activities does your family do on a Friday night? Can you get the price under $1.75? Is that $75 date night still making you cringe too?
