Weekly roundup: discounts, taxes and looking good

by Kristina on April 12, 2013 · 2 comments

Happy Friday Dinks. The world recently lost the famous movie critic Roger Ebert.  As you know I absolutely love movies, I love watching them at my home, I l watching them at the movie theatre and I love snacking on popcorn.

A standing movie date with my best friends includes dinner and movie at least once a week.  We all work in personal finance so we try not go crazy on the spending. Believe it or not our girl’s night out costs no more than $20 each week.  We found a good quality-for-the-dollar Mexican restaurant and we only go to the movies on the night of the week when movie tickets are half price.

It’s a great way to see all of the latest movies and have a night out without worrying about how much it costs.

What is your favourite non-expensive fun activity? And while we are asking questions, what is your favourite movie? My favourite movie is Jaws.

Enjoy these giveaways and posts from our personal finance friends. Have a great weekend Dinks.

Thanks for the mention, Kristina! My favorite movie is V for Vendetta. I would love to have a weekly movie night, but my weeknights are already so hectic it seems like I barely ever make it to the movies. My favorite low-cost fun activity would probably have to be going to happy hour.
