Treat Yo Self

Wednesday, February 15, 2023

If you don't know where this phrase originated, then treat yo self to the video above. 

You work hard, and it's okay to treat yo self to some indulgences or things that make life a little easier. I recently gave in to some "treat yo self" luxuries and wanted to share. This is a big deal for me because I'm quite the penny pincher, so I've included some ways to reduce the price point as well. 

It took me a looong time to justify this purchase, but I coughed up the cash and bought a Stanley Quencher. I love it so much! Mine is cream, and on more that one occasion, I've looked at it and told it (yes audibly) how glad I am that it's mine. I love that it's big! I love the handle! I love that it fits in my cup holder! Win-win-win! I did have a difficult time justifying the cost. It's a cup. Believe it or not, I have other cups at home. Do you use Rakuten? It's an app that gives you a percentage back on purchases you make online and in some stores. I joined in December and have nearly $60 as my cash back balance! If you're already a member, you can purchase the Quencher from the Stanley website and get 7.5% cash back in the app. If you don't already have the Rakuten app, you can use this referral code and get $30 cash back when you spend $ on a Stanley Quencher, fancy face cream, any $30+ you need a little help justifying. 

Another little luxury of late is Walmart+. Walmart+ does lots of things- no purchase minimum for free delivery, free subscription to Paramount+, a discount on Murphy and Exxon gas- but guys, I'm getting my groceries delivered. To my front porch. A member of the Walmart staff shops for my groceries (and other items you could get in store), loads them, drives them over, and drops them off on my front porch. 😳 It is black magic! I told myself I was going to "try it for a year" because it does cost $100 annually (I think you can pay monthly as well). My year is not close to over, but there's no way I can give this up. I subscribed in November when they had a random 2 days when it was half price. I have no idea how often they do this (I haven't seen it since), but I do have a referral code that will save you $20 off an order after subscribing. 

This last one is free and easy, but I've upped my bubble bath game! Right now it's just the quantity. A bath is relaxing at the end of the day. I like that I can read, watch Insta stories, or listen to a podcast while in the bath. These are not bougie baths. Actually, if you're a bath connoisseur comment below and let me know what I need to boost my bubbles.

Think of something you enjoy (big or small). Make time for that today. You deserve it!
