Tip of the day—Buy a gift for yourself this year

Buy yourself a gift this year for Christmas.  It doesn’t have to be expensive.  It doesn’t have to be something big.  Just do it—treat yourself.  Consider it your way of helping lessen the load for Santa Claus and his reindeer. 

Super savers and couponers can sometimes restrict their purchases so much that they forget the joy of an occasional treat.  Use some of the money you’ve saved through couponing and budgeting, and buy a little gift for yourself this year as an act of self love.  I’m not suggesting you spend thousands of dollars or even hundreds of dollars, and I’m not suggesting you go further into debt to do this.  Make a run to the dollar store with a $5 bill and see what goodies you can pick up.   Use some of your hard earned register rewards or ECBs and pick up something just for you at Walgreens or CVS.  Use one of the great online deals with free shipping (there are new ones every day coming through my inbox!) to indulge in something you’ve been wanting for a while.  Then wrap it (yes, I said wrap it!) and put it under the tree.  You can even feign surprise on Christmas morning when you open it if you like!

Blessings to you and yours this Christmas season!
