Frugal Family Night

The price for a movie ticket at the theatre
for 6 people = $42
Popcorn and a drink at a theatre for
6 people = $36
The price of a Monday Redbox Movie Rental = $0
Air popcorn and a tall glass of ice water for 6 people = $.20
Sitting at home in my own comfy lazyboy, with
all my boys around me = Priceless!

This post linked to Amy's Finer Things Friday and
Frugal Friday at Life as Mom.


  1. And a great thing about movies at home is you can pause them to go to the bathroom or refill you water :)

  2. Sounds like our frequent family nights! They are my favorite!

  3. We love Redbox and watching movies at home!

  4. I totally agree about learning to be frugal. When my hubby and I did the cost comparison about going to the movies vs. renting at home, we opted for the latter!

    I love REDBOX don't you!

  5. Love this! We use Redbox, too, but the nearest is 15 miles away... not quite so convenient. Worth the drive for a $1 movie sometimes, though!

    Thanks for linking up!

  6. Plus, you can all wear pajamas and have front row seats!
    Go Redbox!

  7. We love movie nite too! I plan on making slushies at our next movie nite. Thanks for sharing!

  8. Definitely a finer thing! :D WE love movie night!!

  9. Love doesn't get any better than this!
