Today we are doing another kind of party season prep – taking some time out and relaxing a little before things become busier, and/or having a bit of a home spa.
Take some time for yourself, even if it’s half an hour, and do whatever you like. Here are a few ideas:
- Give yourself a pedicure
- Have a soak in the bath
- Go to bed earlier than usual
- Put your feet up and watch a trashy movie
- Curl up on the sofa and read
- Slap on a face pack
- Deep condition your hair
- Listen to a relaxation app or soft music
- Use a shower gel or other toiletries that you normally keep for ‘best’
Most of these ideas are very cheap or completely free, so hopefully it won’t mess up your budget.
Have a lovely relax, and treat yourself.
What’s happening here
Yesterday was my first spending day, £1.75, and apart from that I was quite busy with work. We had shredded ‘beef’ fajitas for dinner, made with shredded veggie burgers, BBQ spices, beans, tomatoes and sweetcorn – one of those easy meals that also tastes great. I watched some more TV and my total is now 1 hour and 54 minutes, so I’m nearly half way through my TV ration.
Today I’m going out for something that was paid for months ago – no point wasting those tickets. I’ll grab a quick snack of some sort at home, but am probably going to have a pint or some wine this evening. Too much clean living isn’t good for you…
Spent yesterday: £1.75
Total spent so far: £1.75
What are you getting up to? What sort of pampering do you recommend?
