It’s Not Easy
It’s not easy being on a strict budget- especially when it is a very, very tight one.
When you are constantly having to cut things out and do with less it can be very depressing. There are times when I feel like I just want to buy whatever I want. Put it on the credit card and deal with it later. It’s especially dispiriting when the things you want to buy are not true “luxuries”!
When that happens and you are feeling particularly low, its ok to treat yourself to something small. Don’t go and book a trip to Europe, but you can buy yourself a coffee once in a while, even if its not in the budget and it so much cheaper to make it at home. Its ok to get that manicure or buy that book. As long as it is a once in a while treat, its ok to let loose a bit and do something a little frivolous. Enjoy it!
