Going out to the movies can be expensive. Not only are the tickets pricey, but the popcorn and soda can be budget-breakers as well. Instead of going to the movies, why not consider staying home and watching a TV series instead? You can subscribe to the Netflix service where you can stream an unlimited amount of content for only $7.99 and that is less than one ticket at the movie theater.
