The Entertainment Book

I have to brag about something. It's sort of silly. But it's also sort of awesome. I went on a $10 date with one of my friends on Monday night. Do you want to know how?

I am pretty psyched about all of the ways that I can save using the coupons in this book. The other night, we had burritos for dinner at a burrito joint downtown, and then each had an ice cream cone at Ben and Jerry's. And we each spent only $10!
Honestly, it doesn't get much better than that, especially when you're on a super tight budget, like me! But, even if you're not on a tight budget, you can save some serious bucks while trying out new placing and enjoying old favorites. James and I use the movie ticket coupons--we save $4 on two adult tickets! There are coupons for retail stores, services (like car wash, mechanics, dry cleaning), museums, entertainment...the list goes on!

I don't usually go on and on about this sort of thing, but this bad boy has already paid for itself and them some! And it's only January! I can't leave you without also mentioning the following. These books are often sold as a fundraiser--I bought mine from our local AIDS Foundation. So, not only am I saving money now, but my initial investment went to a worthy cause. And I believe even if you buy the book online from their website, you can donate some of the proceeds toward a local cause--don't quote me on that, but look into it if you decide to buy!
Pretty excited about ice cream, Ben and Jerry's cows, and all our savings!!!

I'm so bad at using coupons! It doesn't help that I don't have any stores near me! But good for you! Yay for saving money AND for ice cream!!
