It may sound cliché at a time like this to talk about self-care because that has been the biggest tip to help with overcoming the stresses in this season. Most may not consider the importance of such advice. However, I would like to add that self-care can help save money while still being effective and simple. Besides, the point of self-care is to reduce stress and saving money helps reduce stress as well – why not have double-up on the stress reduction?!?!
Consider what is your ideal activity for self-care. A massage. A nice shampoo and deep conditioning under the hair dryer. A beautiful mani and pedi. Curling up in a comfy chair with a blanket to read your favorite novel. Sipping warm tea while watching an amazing sunrise. Taking an afternoon long nap on a rainy day. Whatever your ideal activity is, consider ways to save money doing it or how it is already saving you money to help you relax even more.
My self-care activities include reading, writing in my journal, cooking (yes, this is something that helps me relax…LOL), spending quality time with my husband and/or son. Those are ways I save money. Now, I do like going to a salon or spa. However, there are seasons I cannot do those because I need to save money. I then invest in quality products for home use and practice those self-care activities at home. For example, I invested in Malibu C shampoo and conditioner for hard water because we have hard water, but I still wanted my hair to be healthy when doing at home hair care. High-quality product and it has helped my hair a lot! I still saved money while yet have quality salon products for home use.
The other investment is Rossi dipping powder kit. I recommend checking out their website but for you Amazon enthusiasts, they have some Rossi dip powders there too. I know a mani and pedi with any a gel or dip powder can add up if done regularly. Invest in your own to do at home and you save money while having quality and beautiful nails at home.
These are just a few items of self-care that can help you save money in the long. I would LOVE to hear how you do self-care while saving money too! Leave comments below.
