What's the first thing you do when you get your paycheck (or let's say, a lil' extra money in general)? If you're being a responsible adult—and we sure hope that you are—you've probably thought about setting aside a portion of your income for savings or an emergency fund. This is great and you should totally keep at it because you're on the right track.
Not gonna lie, though– every payday, aside from adding to my savings account, I make sure that one way or another, I still get to treat myself. Don't get me wrong: It doesn't always have to be fancy. There are days when I order my favorite food or check out the latest sales from my fave e-commerce sites. These past few months have been tough and I have to admit, shopping online is really one way to cope! To be honest, when you reward yourself of the little things, it can already be a simple joy in itself. You should try it sometime– that is, if you haven't already!
If you're ever in the mood to treat yourself, here are some items that you can add to your online shopping cart.
