If many of you are like me–a parent… Once a single parent–then you know what it’s like when you don’t get to do a little TLC for yourself. Well, thanks to starting to coupon, I have been able to pamper myself lately. I can now afford to buy shampoo & conditioner I love (even if it is super cheap stuff), for the first time tonight–since I was a kid–I used an actual body wash & not just shampoo… Oddly enough, I felt like a bad @$$. I even got to use shaving cream that I got for FREE!! I used some Nivea lotion (usually $6.xx) that I got for $.60. Deodorant that I got for $.88. Some AMAZING facial wipes (usually $8.xx) that I got for $1.49/pack. And a disposable razor that I paid $.50/ea ($2.00 per pack). Comes out just over $5.00 of stuff that will last for a while & yet, I feel like a million bucks. It’s amazing how such simple stuff can make you feel good.
Heck, I even went out today & splurged on Tampax Pearl feminine products because I hate the stuff I have in my cabinets & I got them for just over $2.00/pack. Talk about one happy momma–cause when I was a single momma, I would go many times without anything just so I could afford to buy my son diapers. It’s awesome to see how far life has come since then. We have so much! Found 6 packs of diapers that will fit our older to (that were marked down but $5.xx/ea) & ended up paying what I would have for 2, for SIX!! I love couponing.
I have to admit, I am a little worried about moving & having to learn it all over again but, I know I can do it! 🙂 So, I got this! Woot Woot! Well, for now–it’s time to sit in the fan & cool off a little bit more cause I hate going to be still wet from the shower so, time to finish drying off & get all ready for bed.
Hope y’all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll try to pop in and say hi some but, we are going to have to focus ALOT on packing the next two days–that and getting healthy. But, for now, have a wonderful weekend.
Y’all have any plans for the weekend? What do you do to pamper yourself? Do you have something you like to splurge on?
