Warding off weekend greys can be worse than tackling Monday blues with your super-woman ambitions. This leaves Saturdays and Sundays to either pursue a short-lived hobby that demands more than an infant’s attention span, or twiddling your thumb (mostly) left and (sometimes) right (hurrah!) on a dating app. At such times, actually staying in and catching up on your favourite screen gods may not be such a bad idea.

Not convinced? Lend an ear to the entire argument, m’lady… Money money money.. I work all night, I work all day, to pay the bills I have to pay Ain’t it sad And still there never seems to be a single penny left for me That’s too bad.. Abba couldn’t get your sentiment truer. But if you’re going to pay those internet, electricity, AND cable bills, you might as well make the most of it. Pop some microwave popcorn, fix yourself a giant beer glass of Nutella-almond milkshake, skip the shower if you don’t care and stay put through it all in your PJs at a fraction of the cost of a trip to the multiplex.

IN MY DREAMS I HAVE A PLAN..

Stepping out with friends to catch a new flick is super fun. But the costs add up. Instead of spending on cramped multiplex seats, overpriced popcorn and soda, and navigating weekend rush doing breathing exercises in a cab on surge pricing hoping to reach on time, why not just stay in and kick off the show at home? You could have the same amount of fun, with the same squad, indoors!

ALL THE THINGS I COULD DO..

Instead of being stuck with the same five movies weekend after weekend on cable or in the movie halls, online entertainment gives you the choice of thousands of movies, tv shows, and documentaries. Don’t curse the tv channel. Keep Calm and switch your smart tv on!

MY LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME..

The thing about watching only stuff that you like or that suits your mood at a given moment, is that it has the power to change something within. It could be just the inspiration you need for a new idea at work, or come to terms with why things went south in your last relationship. Now that’s not something you can be in control of if you depend on cable tv or the 70mm screen, can you? Urban Dictionary and Snapchat have done more for Netflix’s popularity in the past few years than its founders have done since its inception in ’97. While you make a smarter money choice, keep up the mystery next time you respond to

“What are you doing this weekend?” with “Netflix and chill”
