Including entertainment in our daily lives is an extremely important part of human nature. When we enjoy our lives we naturally become happier and healthier people. This is important whether we love to go bungee jumping or curl up with a book. We don’t however need to deplete our bank accounts in order to benefit from entertainment. Here’s a look at some ways to save on some common entertainment choices.
Dining Out – Thanks to the internet, we now have many social coupon services offering discounts on some of our favorite restaurants. Check out Groupon, LivingSocial or Yipit and take advantage of deals and save.
Movies– Instead of movie night, make it movie day and enjoy a matinée for a considerable price difference. For an added bonus have a healthy and satisfying lunch at home in order to avoid unhealthy snacks at the theater.
Sport Games – Once again, the Internet offers a large array of websites with discounted seats. Try sites like StubHub, VividSeats and Gotickets. Also, many sports venues offer low-cost seats in the upper balconies. You may also be able to score cheap last-minute deals for the surplus seats.
Shopping – Many of us enjoy shopping for its entertainment value but this can lead to overspending. Trying leaving your money at home, and enjoy an afternoon of window shopping. You still get to admire the newest and latest of the season without breaking the bank. Or if you must buy, leave your credit card at home and bring a set amount of cash to avoid overspending.
While these are common things most everyone does for a “night out” don’t forget your favorite hobbies, the local park, or your favorite board games for a “night in”. Entertainment can come in many different forms, and just because something is popular it doesn’t necessarily mean it will be entertaining to you. Sharing a childhood game with your family or a picnic in the park with your partner could prove to be more entertaining than a fancy meal and movie.
Remember entertainment comes in many forms and doesn’t necessarily have to exhaust your bank account. So do you mind and body a favor and continue to incorporate entertainment in your life for a happier, healthier you!
