Instead of "having" to see a movie when it first comes out, I wait until it comes out on Netflix or see it at a cheaper theater later. If I decide to splurge and see a movie in the regular theater, I use coupons (from Entertainment books or online) and/or see matinees.

Instead of waiting till you run out of something and have to pay full price, stock up while it is on sale. I refuse to pay full price for toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo or conditioner since it's always on sale. As my husband says we could open up our own Walmart- but not paying full price is so worth it!
If you're on of those who love to exercise but pay the price with a stiff lower back afterwards this is for you!
One of my good friends is a nurse practitioner as well as a personal trainer- she said to take one aspirin(or 2 baby aspirin) prior to my longer bouts of walking or running & it will help me have a better workout- and no lower back pain at the end- or afterwards! It works like a charm!
Have a movie night at home instead of going out to the movies is what we do. Turn the lights down low like in the theater, get comfortable & have an intermission where a low cal dessert or low cal popcorn & diet drinks are served. You save money on gas, tickets & snacks at the theater.
