160 Trips to movie theaters

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the average movie ticket price in 2019 was $9.16. For that price, you could see 145 movies before spending your entire monthly Social Security benefit. Popcorn, drinks or other snacks are not included in this amount, though.

If you want to save some money, you can opt for the DVD version or borrow it from Redbox for $1.75 a day, or from a library for free. Even if you invite your friends over, the snacks and drinks will still cost less than the ticket price for one of you to see the movie alone.


1 Louis Vuitton bag

If you’ve always dreamed of owning a Louis Vuitton Alma BB Bag in Monogram, you can have it in exchange for your monthly Social Security check. A bag like that is about $1,230, but you’ll be the envy of the entire neighborhood.

However, there are better investments you could make instead of buying brand-name handbags jewelry and other clothing. You can find beautiful items at much lower prices at thrift stores like Goodwill, which also offer additional discounts for seniors.
