For Mommies out there, don’t fret! We can still pamper ourselves and enjoy little life’s pleasures the budget-friendly way. Here are some ideas how. Skip it or skim it – take your pick J
Hair treatments at the salon. We can reduce expensive salon hair treatments by giving ourselves hair treatments at home. Hair hot oil treatment can be done at home. We only need to buy a shower cap and your choice of hot oil treatment in beauty stores wherein we can use it in a number of times. In the morning before we do house chores, we can apply it on then put on the shower cap. As we finish our chores, our hair treatment is also done. We still go to salons for a professional haircut or hair dye treatment but only every other month or so.
Manicures and Pedicures. We can invest our own mani/pedi tools and do it ourselves. You will realize that you clean your nails better.
SPA or Home Service Massage. We can opt for this home service massage, or inquire about off-peak hours in SPAs usually early afternoon to get your massage at less expensive rates.
Books. Check out secondhand bookshops or those that sell books at marked down prices. I am enjoying this book shopping at Booksale, I get excellent books for a third of a price.
So far these are the things that I have in mind at the moment. If you have other ideas, don’t be shy to contribute. Your suggestions and comments are very much welcome!
