Reward Yourself without Spending Lots of Dough

Sometimes we just need to reward ourselves and finding ways to do it that are not food or alcohol related can be difficult. From the Speak up: How do you Reward Yourself post it seems like most of you go shopping or eat some dark chocolate. Both activities are super fun, but sometimes a shopping spree just isn't in the cards or the wallet.

I must say I really like brazilnut's reward of a "trying on spree." It is free and fun.

Here are a few other ideas:

  • Buy a song on iTunes, only 99 cents
  • Join Netflix and have movies delivered to your home - plans start at $4.99
  • Pick up some nail polish and give yourself a mani/pedi
  • Buy one stem of your favorite flower - lilacs are abundant now and so wonderfully fragrant
  • Call your best friend that recently moved away
  • Buy a box of yummy tea
  • Take the night off from chores and take a bath

If you have another suggestion, by all means, add it to the list.

Great ideas! But be careful with the iTunes - 99 cents yes, but I got a bit out of hand a couple weeks ago and spent more than what I first had in mind. :P

I dress up in a cute outfit and go to the art museum. When I need a break from art gazing, I head over to the cafe for a cappucino and people watch.
