Pay Me A Break
I go to the salon every six weeks to get my hair cut and colored. I have been going to the same hairdresser for 17 years so she is much more than just my hairdresser. She is also a great friend.
I am extremely cost conscience, always looking for ways to save money. While I could buy a box of hair dye and do it myself to save money, this is one area I refuse to cut back in. This is my 2 hours of "me time" every six weeks. I consider it as paying myself to take a break. I get to sit for 2 hours while someone else does something for me. No one calling, "Mommy!" or asking anything of me. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my family and would be completely lost without them. I also think we, as moms, sometimes forget to take care of ourselves.
When I leave the salon I am happy to return home refreshed, both physically and mentally. So, for me, the cost is well worth it.
Is there an area you choose to "pay yourself a break"?
