Times is tough, folks. Where last summer we may have gone out for lobster dinner “because it’s, you know, the weekend,” now we’re debating relative cost on the McDonald’s value menu. That spendthrift attitude doesn’t end with food, of course, and you’re also likely making adjustments to your home entertainment budget.
Depressing, we know…but there’s hope: EW’s newest column, “The $ave,” which offers great tips for keeping said budget in check while still maintaining your entertainment integrity. Did you know, for instance, that you can buy seasons 1 and 2 of Flight of the Conchords — the latter season an Emmy nominee for Best Comedy — for just $20 a piece? For a little more than the cost of a Build-A-Bear, you can spend countless hours laughing along with the Kiwi folk singers. And keep laughing for years!
So that’s one great value. But we want to hear from you, PopWatchers. We’re taking reader suggestions for our next column and need your savings tips for any and all entertainment products. Consider this the frugal Must List! Be sure to get those suggestions in, along with your name/e-mail, should we choose to include your selection in the magazine. Happy hunting!
