We can all agree that family entertainment on a budget is sometimes harder to find than the pacifier at the bottom of the diaper bag; even when our little rascals are crying like crazy for it!
But I may have found a solution for this dilemma that will have the whole family thanking you in no time!
As I was getting ready to leave work the other day I realized for the first time in a long time, we had nothing on the schedule for the rest of the evening. No Gymboree classes- no play dates- no ballet practice and no work dinners.
Amazing and relaxing night ahead right? Not so fast. If my family has nothing to do- they turn to me to fix their ongoing challenges of boredom.
That is when Redbox
saved the day!
I pulled out my smart phone before leaving work and pulled up the Redbox
application. I reserved a movie for the kids, a video game for my teenager and a documentary for my husband (I couldn’t tell you why he loves watching them so much!) in under 5 minutes.
My rentals were reserved and waiting for me at my local Redbox kiosk in front of the grocery store, which was perfect because I had to pick up dinner anyway.
The best part was it was super affordable; all the rentals were under five bucks! I was able to keep to the family entertainment budget and I even squeezed in a bubble bath while everyone was busy having fun in their own worlds.
And of course I could not resist getting the latest romantic-comedy for myself!
It was a hit for everyone in the house.
