If you are struggling with debt, it can be tough to reward yourself when good things happen.
But, there are ways you can treat yourself without breaking the bank. Here are just a few of them.
The best way to treat yourself is with an actual treat. Try going out for ice cream, baking cookies or buying something new you wouldn’t normally get at the grocery store.
This can be a relatively cheap way to savor the taste of victory after you’ve been promoted, received your tax return or made some other achievement.
2. Free rentals
Another inexpensive way to treat yourself is to take advantage of the free rental options your local library provides. This may give you access to movies, TV shows, books and music you may otherwise have to pay large sums for. Just make sure you don’t keep your rentals past their due date!
3. At–home spa
Going out to the spa for a massage, pedicure or facial can be expensive. Try applying these soothing remedies all by yourself for less at home.
Creating your own at-home spa can be as simple as mixing together homemade scrubs or loading up on warm towels. Whether your lighting a candle and soaking in the bath or watching a nail art Youtube tutorial, you can kick back and relax without over-spending.
4. Free events
Use Facebook to look for free events to attend with your friends. You may find contests, gaming groups, pet programs, clubs, sports and more to participate in.
If you’re not able to afford these small indulgences, it may be time to consider your bankruptcy protection options. Bankruptcy can help people get rid of high amounts of debt to stop foreclosure, repossession and collection efforts.
