Beauty On a Budget

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:

  1. Korean Foot Peel
  2. (beauty finds from eye lashes to hair color)

  1. Don’t know if this appropriate to post so please delete if not.

    I just started reading your blog. When you are feeling down rember this, your babies are blessed to have you. I am a single father and I think my daughter needs her mother so much more than me. Mothers have a nurturing side that is so much more beneficial for the child’s development than a father does. So when they test you try and remeber how lucky they are to have you.

    1. Thanks Robert. I’m feeling down today. Rough day. Have to have darkness to find the light sometimes. I’m blessed. I love my babies. Bu don’t downplay a fathers role; especially for little girls. Her sun rises and sets by her father. 🙂 I promise you, you mean so much more than you realize.*hugs*
