Every once in a while, you deserve to treat yourself. Especially right now as we figure out how to respond to these unprecedented times. To help you get started, we have seven ideas that you can do without exceeding your budget.
Even though traveling is exciting, staying home can also be fun! If you have a pool, lay by the pool and have some beverages and snacks. Take the time to have a movie night or if you are feeling adventurous you can take a drive to a new part of your town that you’ve never seen before. You may be surprised that there is more to your community than you think.
2. Purchase Quality Coffee or Tea
What is your favorite brand of coffee or tea? Instead of purchasing a cup of coffee from your favorite shop, consider buying the coffee beans or tea leaves from them directly. By doing so, it is much cheaper and you will have the beans and leaves conveniently ready to brew at your house.
3. Bake Your Favorite Dessert
Do you have a special dessert that you make every once in a while? Or perhaps you have a dessert you have always wanted to try. Take out the recipe book and have some fun with it. You never know what you might discover.
4. Restaurant Meals
Although eating out at restaurants can get expensive, it is nice to be able to order your favorite meal when you have a craving for it. Sometimes it is nice to have someone serve you for a change.
5. Upgrade Your Phone/Internet
While we have all been spending more time at home, it is a good time to consider upgrading your phone and internet. This may be a good purchase if you spend much of your time online. There is nothing better than a faster network and new features.
6. Learn New Skills
Invest in yourself by learning something new. It could be a new language, an instrument or maybe it is a course on cooking that you’ve been dying to get better at. This is a time for you to grow personally.
7. Pamper Yourself
There is nothing better than feeling good about yourself and there is no better way to do so than giving yourself the treatment you need. Take the time to get your hair done, paint your nails or get that much needed massage.
