    Going to the movies feels like such a luxury! Cinema tickets are my fave type of reward to redeem. Movie tickets cost $15 plus, but with new competition from a new operator in my area, our local theatres are now around the $9 mark which is much more palatable.

      Great that you now have a cheaper option for the cinema. We do enjoy family outings to see a film, but try to go at times when it’s cheaper, or using vouchers and other discounts.

    At the gym I go to we have books and magazines bought in by members which can be bought (or borrowed in most cases because people usually bring them back) for a small donation. In this we we raised £6,000 for he local hospice. As its a ladies gym aimed at the over 40s, the mags tend to be Woman & Home/ Good Housekeeping type. Since GH is my favourite I get to read almost every copy for a very small cost.

      What a great way to share magazines between readers, plus good incentive to get to the gym! Wish I had something like that near me.

    Five brilliantly frugal things 🙂

    I signed up for two lots of ‘5 magazines for just £1 each’. I cancelled the Country Living one in plenty of time … but then forgot about the Kitchen Garden one so they managed to nab the next £20 out of my account before I realised and cancelled that one. So I have another 6 months of gardening magazines to come, at least I’ll get the free seeds I suppose which are usually pretty good in the first few months of the year … but I was annoyed with myself!!

      So frustrating when that happens. Hope the free seeds are some consolation!
      I got caught out ordering a trial box of Hotel Chocolat chocolates on subscription – was immensely impressed when I rang up and they refunded the first full subscription payment, and said I could give the additional box to our local food bank.
