Cheap Ways to Treat Yourself

22 Cheap Ways to Treat Yourself

You've worked hard this whole week, so it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the weekend! Give yourself a treat to feel rejuvenated and make yourself feel good. Don't worry, treating yourself doesn't always mean pricey massages at the spa or weekend getaways. Here are plenty of affordable ways to do it.

  1. Relive your Charlie and the Chocolate Factory memories and treat yourself to a bar of chocolate. Remember how Charlie savored each bite of the Willy Wonka chocolate bar? Eat yours in the same manner and relish every bite.
  2. Buy yourself a steak and cook it. It's much cheaper than going to a steak house! Eat it while drinking a glass of affordable red wine.
  3. Grab a few friends and go on a picnic in a nearby park.
  4. Watch reality show reruns or shows saved on your DVR with a bowl of chocolate ice cream.
  5. Explore a museum you've never been to.
  6. Reread your favorite book.
  7. Go to your local coffee shop and try a new coffee flavor. Bring your laptop with you and catch up with friends and relatives over email.
  8. Take a walk around your neighborhood.
  9. Bake cookies and nibble on some of the cookie dough when you're stirring the mix.
  10. Watch funny animal videos on YouTube.
  11. Go see a movie you've been dying to see. No one to watch it with? Be bold and go alone!
  12. Take a relaxing bubble bath and play some soothing music in the background.
  13. Make time during your day to watch the sunset.
  14. Write a story or a poem or create your own art masterpiece — maybe even with an adult coloring book.
  15. Work on a DIY project that you've been dying to try.
  16. Spend time catching up on celebrity news. We've got you covered there . . .
  17. Moisturize yourself from head to toe.
  18. Go to an ice cream store and order your favorite flavor. Arrange to meet up with a friend to catch up over ice cream.
  19. Make your own face mask and give yourself a facial.
  20. Take a nap and feel well-rested for the rest of the day. Don't be afraid to spend the whole day in pajamas . . . just because.
  21. Get a cheap massage or have your significant other give you one.
  22. Put up a hammock in your backyard and make good use of it.
