This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser, Walmart Family Mobile. All opinions are mine alone. #YourTaxCash #CollectiveBiasA couple of weeks ago, I shared some suggestions for spending your tax refund wisely (check out that post here). Out of all the tips in that post, my favorite is how to save money on cell service with Walmart Family Mobile. Everyone has a cell phone and most people are paying way too much for it. With Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan, you get unlimited talk, text, & data (includes up to 10GB of 4G LTE than 2G) for $49.88! And if that wasn’t enough, another perk of the Walmart Family Mobile PLUS plan is a free VUDU movie credit every month (valued at $7)!
If you need an affordable new phone, Walmart Family Mobile can help you with that too. Right now, the Samsung Galaxy On5 is currently on sale for only $69 (check out the end of this post for more info)!
Becuase we are saving for a down payment on a house, my husband and I are trying to cut expenses on non-necessities like entertainment. The free VUDU movie credit gave me a wonderful idea! Why not throw an AMAZING movie party right here at home? So on Friday night, I got out my craft scissors and tape and got to work turning our apartment into a movie theater.
How To Throw a DIY Movie Party
When creating a movie party at home, the little details are what make it extra special. For a more authentic movie experience, I made movie tickets for everyone and passed them out the day before the party. Ella was so excited when she got her ticket! It really made our movie party a special event!
On Saturday night, I turned our kitchen table into party central. I made a “Get Your Treats Here” sign and filled mason jars with licorice, chocolates, and gummy bears.
I also added colorful paper cups filled with popcorn and a crate of cold drinks. Finally, I hung some bright green streamers and pink, circular paper fans. The house looked so fun when I was finished!
My husband took Ella out for a bit while I set everything up. When they got back home and saw the house, they were both SHOCKED. Ella ran to her room, got her movie ticket, and our DIY movie party officially began!
We all had a wonderful time! We laughed a lot and took tons of pictures. It was so much more special than going out to the movie theater and way cheaper too! Plus it’s something we will remember for a long time. If you are thinking about throwing a DIY movie party, I say go for it! You can surprise your kids like I did or let them help create decorations and turn your home into a movie theater. Either way, your whole family will have an amazing time!
