The opportunity cost of seeing a movie in this day and time means that you are going to give up the money that you would spend on that movie instead of using it for something else that you may need later on during the week. This happens a lot in the world because people think that money is everlasting, and they will always have an abundance of money coming in. However, this is not the case in the real world. You do not have an abundance of money coming in and it never lasts long enough. Choosing how to spend your money wisely is the most important lesson of your life because you have other things to think about when that time comes. People do not think about the consequences of their actions until they have committed the act. Spending your money on movies, fast food or other things only to turn around and complain that you do not have the money for food, gas or other things that you need that are more important to survive in the world today. Many people watch the money that they spend because it is something that does not come easily. Most people have to work forty hours a week to make enough money to pay for the important bills that they may have everything else is optional. Some people have second jobs to make their spending money for the week so that they can enjoy going to the movies, out to dinner or other things that they may like to do. Do you know it took us three years and debates over buying a flat screen television because there were other pressing items before we wanted to spend money on something that is only going to amuse us for a little while during the day. Mainly the children because she does not watch that much television to begin with. Some things in life are optional and sometimes it is something they do not really need but want. You have the opportunity to make money and only spend what you want on the material things in life. However, people need electric, water, food, and gas to make it through in the world today. With every step that you take, every table that you serve you are making the money that you need to pay the bills. It may not be much but if you spend your money wisely and watch what you spend it on anything is possible. Many people think that they are owed to have everything that they want in life however, when you grow up and finally get your own place you will see that you cannot have everything that you want. It is not logical in this day and time to spend thousands of dollars on pointless things just to make yourself happy with your life. You are what makes your life and if you want more things out of life you have to make sacrifices whether you like the outcomes or not.
