…Movies don’t have to be expensive?

Movie Theater

I love summertime movies, but with ticket prices quickly approaching a Jackson, and popcorn prices making you rethink the switch to ethanol, it’s quickly becoming harder and harder to justify the cost.

However, with a bit of planning and some smart savings, Consumerist can show you nine different ways to save at the movies.

From movie ticket coupons and drive-in revivals to bulk ticket purchases and reward programs, it’s a helpful and easy to use guide to saving a few bucks.

…Today is National Slip ‘N Slide Day?

Slip ‘N Slide

I would like to propose that on this, the 25th of August, we, as a people, put into motion the changes that need to be made to declare this, the last Saturday of every August, “National Slip ‘N Slide Day”.

Why?

Because what’s more fun than finding a tarp, wetting it down, and sliding till your skin rubs off?

If you’d like to join the fight to bring this summertime fun back into common use, then grab some friends, loose your sense of good judgement, and get sliding.
