3 Ways to Reward Yourself for Under $15

When I think of rewarding myself, too often my first thought turns to food of some kind.  Can you relate?

And when the reward is to be for a few pounds lost, a day of good food choices, etc., then a food reward seems to defeat the purpose.

Now, instead of a food reward, I have found 3 ways to reward myself that I enjoy without spending a lot of money (less than $15) and does not involve food.

1.  A New Candle

2.  A New Book

3.  Flowers

What other ways can you think of for $15 or less to use as personal rewards for a goal achieved (that does not include food)?

    For me, it's a trip to the library with an hour or two to peruse, wander, and maybe sit down with a book. And if I like it, I can check it out to finish at home. Many audiobooks are in this price range, too.

    3 of my favorite things! Coffee with a friend is also a nice reward!

    A new nail polish color for my toes. :)

  4. I love crafting of all sorts, but I especially enjoy drawing. So a new drawing pencil or pen is a great treat and usually under $5.

    Since I'm not particularly crafty, I would not have thought of this. But yes, I can see how that could be a treat for one who is!

    Oh yes! I may have to do that one of these times!

  7. MyQuietCorner10:58 PM

    Yes, coffee with a friend could definitely be added to this list! Another one of my favorite things!

    Just to have the time of an available and uninterrupted hour or two to do anything would be a gift for me. LOL... In all seriousness, what a great idea! And even FREE! I will definitely keep this in mind in the future!
