While you may be on a budget and the money in your wallet seems to be tight, you can still reward yourself with simple gifts every now and then. One of a woman’s favorite rewards are bath and body products. There is nothing like having your own little spa right in the comfort of your home. While these products are a favorite indulgence, they can be quite expensive, but it is possible to buy them on a limited budget.
One way to buy your favorite lotions and bath products is to wait and shop after the popular holiday seasons. After Christmas sales are some of the best times to buy products that come in gift packages, or buying them at almost half of their original price. The Bath and Body Works store always has a big sale after Christmas, and especially after seasonal sales too such as summer and fall. You can often buy your favorite summer fragrances on sale once fall begins to hit.
Another way to purchase bath and body products is to buy off brand or generic. Wal-Mart carries a line of bath and body products that is very similar to Bath and Body Works. They even have scents like cherry blossom and the classic vanilla too. Other discount stores like Dollar General or Dollar Tree often carry bath and body products as well. They still have lovely scents and can be bought at discount prices. Many of them are often usually only one dollar or even less than five dollars.
If you are looking for discontinued products or your scents that suddenly went off the shelves, remember to look on Ebay! On Ebay, you can often find bath and body products sold in a lot at a low price, or even your favorite product that may no longer be sold. There are plenty of bath and body products on Ebay that can be purchased at reasonable prices. Just find the auction that catches your eye, and step right in to bid!
Last of all-don’t be afraid to use coupons!! During the holiday seasons, popular retail stores often mail out coupons you can use to buy your favorite products. Bath and Body works is especially popular for using this tactic. Be sure to get in on their mailing list. If you have purchased from them in the past, then it is likely that you are already on their list. They often ask for your phone number or an email address when you buy from the their store. Be sure to search the Internet for coupons too. Coupons can lead to great savings, and you can purchase your favorite products as well. Maybe with a coupon or a special sale-your husband just might let you make a purchase this time!
So, if you find your household budget running tight, keep these tips in mind, so that you don’t feel like you are working to just pay the household bills. While it is important to keep a roof over our head, food in our mouths, and energy in the household, you can still reward yourself in small simple ways for the work that you do. -Just be sure to add another little reward on the side to your husband as well-he works hard too!
