Frugal Family: Free Kids' Movies From Family Video

Week two of Frugal Family presents free movies, discounted dinners and more.

Although Valentine's Day has come and gone, Patch is still spreading the love with great discounts from area businesses. From food to entertainment and from clothes to appliances, we have your interest in frugal living at heart. 

Dinner For Two at a Price You Can Swallow

Every weekday this month, in Webster Groves is preparing gourmet dinners for two for take-out and easy microwaving, which make an ideal meal for a movie night at home when the kids are at Grandma's house. This week, $16.99 can purchase a meal of grilled petite beef tenders with a side of Caesar salad and twice baked potatoes (Wednesday night); smoked pork tenderloin with ancho chili jam and sides of twice baked potatoes and cornbread muffins (Thursday); and teriyaki chicken breast with sides of fried rice, Asian vegetables and veggie egg rolls.

Free Kids' Movie Rentals

An ongoing deal for members of the Maplewood allows children to pick out a couple movies from a designated section for free. Although the offer is extended at multiple Family Video locations, the Maplewood branch offers 400-500 free movies, including Disney classics, newer animated films like The Incredibles and Ice Age and episodes of PBS shows like Arthur and Dora the Explorer.

"You can't get much better deals than that," District Manager Tanya Almerli said.

With two-for-one deals and low prices for new releases, there are many ways to save at Family Video.

"It's very affordable for families," Almerli said. "They can walk out with ten movies for under five bucks."

A Lifesaver for Families with Leaky Basements

Ace Hardware has a special offer on a one-gallon ShopVac for $19.99. Stop by in Maplewood from now until Feb. 28 to take advantage of the savings. As weeks' worth of ice and snow finally melt, the ShopVac could come in handy in older homes that have water leakage problems.
