Last year, we gleefully paid about $500 for tickets to three summer music festivals in Chicago. Fortunately for us, we struck early this year and purchased the early release tickets to all of the festivals, limiting our total to just about $200 for both of us.
I guess that’s not totally honest. We did think ahead this year and bought extra tickets to each event, in hopes that we can sell them for at least the amount that we purchased them for. A search on Craigslist reveals that there is quite the market for tickets to the events that we have extra tickets for.
A little capitalism goes a long way for providing cheap, free, even profitable summer fun.
