I really wanted to see 'Don't Be Afraid of the Dark' because I super love Guillermo del Toro movies. (For the record, it wasn't that great, but it was entertaining - if not at all scary. Wait until it comes on a movie channel you already pay for, or Netflix, and watch in the comfort of your own home with the lights off for a semi-creepy gigglefest.)
I discovered that my theater of choice currently has a coupon for 1/2 off a large popcorn & drink.
After some heated internal debate, I made the choice. Rather than drop all those points for a giant popcorn popped in oil (which would have lasted me a couple days, yes, but did I really need to be snacking on THAT more than once?), I took part in my recent rebellious habit of smuggling goodies into the movie in my purse.
I popped a 94% fat free mini bag of popcorn (3 points, as opposed to something around 5 times that much for the large movie popcorn!) and transferred it to a ziplock. I also counted out 34 Pretzel M&M's (9 points, but soooo worth it in my opinion!), and took a can of Coke Zero. So I still treated myself, but I stayed within my points today and saved money!
I'm still waiting on the day someone asks to see inside my purse before they let me in the theater.
