Ways to Save on a Family Outing to the Movies

Our family of 4 went to the movies this weekend for the first time in forever. It cost us just over $50 to see a matinee and share one large popcorn and soda. I knew ticket prices had creeped up the past few years but I was shocked. Are there any ways a frugal family can go to the movie theater these days without killing their budget? I did check online for discounts before we went but did not find any.

Frugal Party Ideas for Twin Tweens

You have so many great party ideas on this site. I was wondering if you could ask your readers for frugal party ideas for twin tweens. My twin girls will be turning 13 this year and they really want to have a party but we have to keep the cost way down in order to swing it. I am hoping to get some cute ideas that would be specific to twins, such as party games that require kids to pair up, ideas for "pairs" of snacks, etc. The more frugal the better! Not a lot of wiggle room in the budget this year. Thanks so much!
