Happy Tuesday! Treat Yo Self Tuesday, as I like to call it. Yesterday, our internet was down in my office, so I got to work from home. After a busy weekend, I was dying for a little extra time at home, and I got it! I had a lot to do so I was busy until 5, but it was nice to be at home!
Sometimes in life, you just need to treat yo self. Whether it was a bad day at work, a great day at work, you just want to buy something, or just because it’s Tuesday, it’s necessary sometimes. However, if you get in the habit of this, it can get a little expensive. I say this because I know. So, I’ve put together a list of my favorite little treats that won’t blow your budget! Most of them are under $10, and some of them are free!
1. New reading material
I love to pick up a new magazine or book for a weekend treat yo self. Typically it’s a magazine because they’re about $5 tops, but sometimes you can find a great book on sale! My favorite magazines are Southern Living, InStyle, and Harper’s Bazaar. For books, I typically head to Target (because if I just want to buy something, that’s where I’m at).
2. A good workout
In the wise words of my role model slash style icon Elle Woods, “Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people don’t shoot their husbands. They just don’t”. Well, I don’t have a husband so I don’t have to worry about anything dramatic, but a nice sweat session is a great way to boost your attitude! My new favorite way to workout is this Nike Training Club app. It’s free, and it has a huge library of workouts to choose from! This may take a little convincing to view it as a treat, but it works really well when you’re broke.
3. A petite pampering
Sometimes you want to treat yo actual self. But you can’t justify a pedicure because it’s only Tuesday and you just bought clothes for vacation so that would not be wise. Some of my favorite purchases are pillow mist ($10), bath bombs from LUSH, ($4-8), 0r a fun new nail polish color that’s perfect for summer ($8-10)!
4. A tasty treat
Full disclosure, I had to try really hard to not make this list all food. Let’s just cut to the chase, if you’re wanting an easy and inexpensive way to treat yo self, go get Starbucks, ice cream, Taco Cabana nachos, or whatever else you want that’s unhealthy. Because: treat yo self.
5. Window shopping
This one can be tricky, because you may end up spending way more than $10. But sometimes, I just like to make my shopping list of things to keep in mind for an actual shopping trip!
What’s your favorite way to treat yo self without spending too much? Let me know!
That’s all for meow!
