Yesterday, we took a family bike ride down to the nearest RedBox to pick up a movie for the night. For $1, you get the movie until 9pm the following night. Even better is when you have a promo code for a free rental. While I'm a big fan of Hip2Save for most of my coupon/deal finds, I occasionally visit SwagGrabber to see if there are different deals listed. SwagGrabber often has free promo codes for RedBox on their site. When I see the codes, I jot them down into my phone and viola, free movie! I was able to do this twice this weekend.
And then, for dinner tonight, hubby and I served mac n' cheese and chicken nuggets to the kids, complete with the healthy balance of a homemade fruit smoothie. We bathed them, put them bed, and then sat down for a nice romantic dinner for two. We had Caesar salad, steak, garlic green beans, and mashed potatoes by candlelight. We love to do this every once in a while. My husband can't stand paying for steak at a restaurant because they "never know how to cook it." Dinner at home is much more affordable, it's quiet, and there's no cost for a baby sitter. Yes, we still have to cook and clean up, but it's just so nice doing it together without the commotion of our children that we don't really mind. So, cheers to a cheap date!
