Most of us work hard all week and look forward to a little entertainment on the weekend. Even though we are retired, our week consists of meetings, classes and volunteer work. So we are ready to do something different on the weekends! (I’ll sneak some photos in of our drive to the coast last Sunday)
Our community has a lot of events to take part in and clubs to join. So we have a lot to choose from. Most of the plays, musical productions, movies, seminars and lectures are ‘donation’ only so you can pay what you can afford.
But there are other ways to ‘create’ your own entertainment. We check movies out of the library, and still have date nights! It’s still fun to get dressed up and ‘go out’ and there are lots of things to do that don’t cost very much. We enjoy going out to eat and the movies…and the museum. But we find ways to do it economically. Of course for the ‘over 55’ group, we can get discounts and that helps.
What are some of the ways you enjoy entertainment without breaking the bank? I’ll add some of your ideas to this post as they come in! I would love to find out how you save money! We can’t work ALL the time! ; )
Maybe we should get our fishing license!
Ricki Jill mentioned checking magazines out from the library! I do that, too! And in the lobby we have a table for ‘free’ magazines! Great tip, Ricki! Thanks!
And Lilybets mentioned a picnic…I love that idea! Karen mentioned free movies and I googled ‘free movies’ and found Hulu and some others where you can view movies online. A great source!
Ginger has a great bit of info that we can use! When you rent Redbox movies, reserve them online and they are even LESS AND they send you a promo code for free movies after you rent so many.
Please join all of the other Thrifty living ladies…or “Frugal Five” for their posts on this subject!
