That’s Entertainment! Money-saving Tips By Sandra Beck, Motherhood Incorporated

• Wait until the last minute to get your performance tickets. You can get them for a discounted price if your plans are flexible.
• Visit your local library for DVDs – no rental fees that way! Also check out library events such as book clubs if you are looking for something free to do.
• Volunteer – if you volunteer at a theater, you may be able to sit in on performances for free. This may not be easy, especially if you have young children but it’s something to think about.
• Look for discounts at zoos, museums, etc. Some places offer free admission days certain days of the month.
• Team up with a relative, friend or neighbor for baby-sitting. If they watch your kids on certain night, then you watch theirs on another night. Think of the money you will save by helping each other out.
• If you want to go to the movies or theater for a show, try to go to a matinee showing if possible as they are cheaper for everyone.
• Go as a group to events to get a discount- usually 10%, but sometimes more- ask friends, relatives or co-workers to attend with you and your kids and you will save some money for everybody. They say “the more the merrier” – in this case it really is true.
• Use your membership to clubs such as AAA to get discounts on tickets and events. Your job or former college may offer discounts as well.
