Entertainment on a Shoestring Budget


When I was a kid, I used to go to the our neighborhood grocery store with my mom.  It was owned by European immigrants who founded the store on quality, quantity, and guaranteed lowest prices. You could get everything you needed.  A half-gallon of milk was $0.90.  A loaf of bread was a quarter. Beef was $.050 a pound. Additionally, a gallon of gas was $0.32, and a movie ticket, if we could afford it, was under a buck.   

Not a lot has changed since then.  The cost for goods and services today is all relative. The economy ebs and flows. Prices change. We still squeeze every penny out of a dollar, especially with a recession looming.  Life is heavy. You need a way to get away. How do you do it without breaking the bank? One way for me is entertainment.   

The first time I went to Disneyland, I remember my dad pointing out a sign at the entrance where the train passes over a pedestrian tunnel. It is a quote by Walt Disney.  “Here you leave today and enter the world of yesterday, tomorrow and fantasy.”   My dad was one of the first to visit “The Happiest Place on Earth” back on July 17, 1955.  His love for Disney entertainment rubbed off on me.  Now that I have kids and grandkids, It’s more difficult to afford a passport to the parks, so Disney movies are a great way for me and my family to be entertained.  

Movies are no different from anything else. The cost to see a movie continues to climb at an alarming rate.  What can you do?
