If you have taken your family to the movies lately, you know how expensive this venture has become. Rather than take the whole family to see a movie, consider waiting until it comes out on video and buy it. You can usually buy it for what it would cost for 2 or 3 people to see it one time. If you own the movie you can watch it numerous times but only have to pay for it once. Pop your own popcorn in the microwave, open a 2-liter bottle of soda, and enjoy a night out on the town at home. After you have watched the movie until you never want to see it again, turn around and sell it at a garage sale, or better yet, sell it on the Internet. Many times you can get more money for it than you would by selling it at a garage sale.
