J and I got out together, sans children, for a few hours tonight. We did it for $12 plus gas. How?
I'm part of a babysitting co-op. It's parents babysitting each other's kids for free. I had over 15 hours banked, so it was a no brainer to use a few hours for tonight.

Parking validated at the movie theatre for $2. Without validation, it would have been $20.
Savings = $18
Prime time, new release movie (Star Trek), at a nice, new theater. Only $5 each. We used our Kerasotes $5 movie cards that will get you in to select movies each week for $5. Normally, we would have paid $10.75 EACH. We got in for $10 total.
