Entertainment Spending

July 19th, 2008 at 06:32 pm

Yesterday, I packed breakfast and lunch for work. I was able to get out a little early, so I met my parents and nephew at the movies for Hellboy. Geeze $8.00 for a matinee, RIDICULOUS! I did enjoy the movie though. And I was able to resist drinks and snacks. I snuck a bottle of water, refilled at work before leaving.

Today, I went to a local state park and did a 1.5 hour hike around a pond. In the 90 degree weather, what was I thinking?!? At least I enjoyed myself. But I came home dirty, sweaty and tired! The park had a $3.00 admission, but it was worth it. I feel so relaxed now Smile

Tonight, I'm staying in. I have movies from the library, a book my mom gave me and a house to clean. I need the down time Smile

    Movie theatre's are pricing themselves right out of the market.

    When our son's were home, my husband used to take them to pro football games. you can't do that now. I just refuse to support the ridiculous salaries that these guys get. We enjoy watching it on TV now. These promoters wonder why their stadiums are empty.

    I think that we all need to relearn what our community offers that are free, lowcost, or reasonable.

    There was a news story recently about how movie theatres are actually making more money now - movie premieres are doing big business. Their angle on it was that the cost of a couple movie tickets (even at $12 a piece in New York) + drinks and snacks, were still cheaper than going to a Major League Baseball game or an NFL game, etc.

    If you think about it, for the cost of two adult movie tickets, you can just about BUY the movie when it comes out on DVD - then have much healthier snacks in the comfort of your home.
