Have you taken the entire fam to the movies lately? It’s not cheap, right? My family of six is looking at a $50 outing when we see a show – and that’s for a non-3D movie with snacks stuffed in my over-sized purse! Lucky for us, there are lots of chances to see some free (or almost free) movies this summer. Pin this one, Smarties, and refer to it over and over this summer!
