I've just entered the Netflix zone

I just received my first movie from Netflix. I signed up for a free 2 week trial. If I would decide to keep my membership, it's about 9 dollars a month. I probably won't keep it. I'm not a movie renter (I know I haven't rented a movie in 10-15 years) and not much of a movie watcher since we got our computer-going on 4 years now.

But buddy-if I was a movie renter and watcher, this would be right up my alley. I dislike stopping at stores (except Goodwill). Most of the time I don't even like to leave my house. (I know-I'm a little-ahem-weird.)

In case you don't know-you sign up for Netflix online. You choose how many movies you want to receive at one time. (I chose one. Your monthly fee is more-the more movies you get at the same time.) Choose your movies in the order you want to receive them. Your movie arrives very quickly in your mailbox. When you are done with the movie, stick 'er in the return envelope, put 'er in the mail and wait for your next movie to arrive. I know most people know this-but just in case you didn't-I thought I'd tell you.

I just think this is cool, man-very cool. Whoever thought this up was genius, I tell you-genius.☺

PS-Do you see I chose Twilight for my first movie?...Hope it's good.

PSS-Definitely not as good as the book!

Yes, this would be a great way to see movies. The price is great, considering I spent $50 bucks to take the kids to see a 3-D movie and snacks and it was even a matinee. So the price is definitely right. I'll have to check it out.

Oh my-movies and snacks are not a frugal activity, are they?

Like we were talking about the other day-it would be great to have a bargain movie theater around here!☺
