I thought about taking my family to the movies next weekend for Valentine's Day thinking it would be nice to spend an afternoon at the theater with some popcorn. Just thinking about the dark room, the hushed quiet, and a comfy seat had me excited. I was looking forward to it just being us and our three minions enjoying the laughter of the shared moments.
So, I looked up the movie and chose the matinee option hoping that our little adventure wouldn't break the bank. Boy, I was wrong. A child's matinee price these days is eleven dollars and our adult tickets would have been thirteen a piece. For the five of us just to sit in the theater it will cost us sixty bucks! Throw in a giant tub of popcorn big enough to satiate three growing kids and the money in my wallet would be flying out faster than a luge of movie theater butter.
How can anyone afford to go to the movies anymore when a perfectly good couch, my favorite fleece blanket and that giant flat-screen is calling me home? Is your husband's idea of movie with real heart revolve around zombies? Does your wife come home, lose the bra and put on a comfy sweatshirt? Have you seen your kids at all this week besides bedtime? These are all signs that a night in is what you really need.
Valentine's Day is about spending time with the people you love so forget the price gouging movie theater and spend it this year with your significant others. Show your loved ones that you're in it for the long haul by subscribing to Netflix and you'll still have money left over for a bouquet of roses. Just make sure they aren't in front of the TV. To help you along the way, here are sure fire shows for all of the sweethearts in your life.
