Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays Bank.
I talked the other day about how much I prefer Netflix over the theater, at least from a financial perspective. That being said, we do indulge in trips to the movie theater every once in awhile. And what fun is a movie without snacks?
The problem here is that the snack bar is even more overpriced than the ticket counter. Our solution? Simple. Stop by the drugstore on the way to the theater to pick up our treats. Then just slip them in your pocket and head for the show. Given that a box of Milk Duds goes for something like three bucks at the theater, picking up the exact same thing for under a buck while you’re en route is a great way to keep your costs down while still enjoying full movie theater experience. This is especially when you have four kids that are hankering for a treat — to be fair, our youngest doesn’t go to the movies yet, but still.
You know, it’s funny… I never realized how much of a habit this had become until our eight year old asked “Dad, is there a CVS drugstore at every theater?”
