Cheap Ways to Treat Yourself

22 Cheap Ways to Treat Yourself

You work hard all week, so when the weekend comes it's time to sit back, relax, and enjoy yourself! 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 wallet-friendly suggestions.

  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 restaurant! 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 with a bowl of chocolate ice cream.
  5. Explore a museum you've never been to.
  6. Reread your favourite book (maybe The Hunger Games trilogy?).
  7. Go to your local coffee shop and try a new coffee flavour. Bring your laptop with you and catch up with friends and relatives over email.
  8. Take a walk around your neighbourhood.
  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.
  15. Work on a DIY project that you've been dying to try.
  16. Spend time catching up on celebrity news on POPSUGAR and click through the beautiful pictures.
  17. Moisturise yourself from head to toe.
  18. Go to an ice cream store and order your favourite flavour. 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 pyjamas . . . just because!
  21. Tell your honey to give you a massage. Make sure to tell him which parts he should focus on.
  22. Put up a hammock in your backyard and make good use of it.
