Happy Monday everyone. I hope you enjoyed homecoming. This time of year is fun but it makes me realize how much money I spend. From Homecoming events to a great Halloween costume to the holidays, this can be an expensive time of year. This week we are going to talk about money and today I am going to help you get more bang for your buck.
Do you love to go to the movies? I do, but going to the movies can get expensive. My family went to see GI Joe and it cost us almost $50. That is a lot of money to spend especially when it is over in 2 hours, at least that $50 sweater will last you a season or two.
Did you know you can see new movies for cheap?! Yes, Denton has 3 movie theatres that offer some great deals.
Denton Movie Tavern has student tickets for $3 on every Monday and Thursday…all day, just show your UNT ID.
The Cinemark in Denton offers student tickets on Thursdays for $3.50.
The Silver Cinemas in the Golden Triangle Mall shows just out of theatre movies (right now you can see District 9 and The Proposal for example) for $2. On Tuesdays you can get your tickets for $1.50.
How does this all add up? Well, let’s say you want to see a movie twice a month. If you go Friday night to the Movie tavern you will spend $7 on your ticket. That is $14 a month and $168 a year. If you opt to go to the Movie tavern on Thursdays when you can get a student ticket for $3. That comes to $6 a month, $72 a year and $96 in savings. You just saved enough money to pay for your next biology book.
Another way to save money is to skip the concessions…or if you are like me and cannot pass up the smell of fresh popped popcorn…split a bag with a friend.
Come back tomorrow for some more tips on making the most of your money.
Speaking of movies….are you looking forward to seeing any current or soon to be released movie???
