I’m an extreme cheapskate. However, you can’t penny pinch constantly without occasionally doing something nice for yourself. If I run into something that I can do for me that doesn’t blow my budget, I’ll generally put it on my try it out list. I’ve learned that if I don’t do something for me here and there it’s VERY easy to get burned out so I try to reward myself when I can. Please note, though, that my beauty on a budget items are usually DIY type of things. I don’t splurge on $300 purses or shoes and the ONLY time I might splurge on a spa day is if I found a Groupon/Promo for it.
Currently, I’m on a mission to lose baby weight and fit into my pre-baby clothes. Hence, my beauty on a budget finds at the moment are rewards for every 5 lbs I lose. So far so good as Baby J is three months old now and I’m down 20 lbs. I love her to pieces so I’ll forgive her for the extra junk in the trunk she left me with. 😉
Here are some of my “Beauty on a Budget” finds:
