I wanted to share with you some of the monthly expenses for my self-care routine. Feel free to steal any that might fit you well, I won't mind, lol.
- Membership to Hand and Stone - $69.95 I get my choice of a massage or facial. I usually opt for a massage but I think I need a facial soon. I've been breaking out :( The great thing about Hand and Stone is that they have locations nationwide, and they also offer late-night appointments, which is perfect for my schedule.
- Therapy Sessions - $60 This is actually a bi-weekly expense and my co-pay is low due to my health insurance. Full transparency, I've been slacking a little on my sessions and need to get back to it.
- Nail Appointment - $150 This is also a bi-weekly expense and so high because I get a pedicure also
- Netflix - It cost $19 but I don't directly pay for it, lol (long story, smh). I include this in my self-care routine because whenever I'm in a funk or bad mood, I turn to Netflix to watch a funny movie or show to help better my mood.
Doing this list made me realize that I need to get back to Zumba or Yoga. That was my monthly gym membership expense, ugh!
However, these are my consistent monthly expenses, but I have those one-off expenses as well. I'm also going to talk about different self-care ideas/activities that you can do FOR FREE! Check back on our blog next week. I hope this was helpful.
