6 Inexpensive Ways to Treat Yourself

A wise woman named Donna Meagle once said, “Treat yo self!” At the end of a week filled with papers and late-night studying, sometimes the best thing is to take a little time to do something nice for yourself. If you’re like me, you love treating yourself every once in a while, but you also know it can be really difficult to do on a college student’s budget. Although we broke college students might not have the means to go on a full-fledged shopping spree or eat at the most expensive restaurant in town, there are some cheaper options that can help you save money.

Here are six inexpensive ways to treat yourself:

1. Have a movie marathon

Netflix is filled with great options for movie-lovers, and it’s especially nice when you’re too exhausted from being awesome all week to do anything but sit on the couch. Grab some popcorn and spend the night watching your favorite flicks!

2. Cook yourself a nice dinner

Take a break from eating frozen pizza and microwaveable mac n’ cheese and cook yourself an actual dinner. Plus, it’s never too late to remember what actual vegetables taste like.

3. Take a nap

It might sound overly simple, but sometimes we’re so exhausted from being in class all day that a nap is just what we need. Snuggle up with your favorite blankets and forget about the world for an hour (or two!).

4. Do a face mask

Face masks are great for your skin AND they can make you feel like a certified skin care expert.

5. Buy a coloring book

Coloring is not only super relaxing, but it’s also a great way to express your creative side. Not to mention, adult coloring books are very cheap!

6. Go to a coffee shop

There’s something about coffee shops that just immediately relaxes you. Whether you’re going to chat with friends or just hanging by yourself, coffee shops provide laidback atmospheres where you can chill and get some much-needed caffeine.
