A Beautiful Thrifty Treat: Music to My Ears

One of the most fun, but most often overlooked challenges of living a beautiful thrifty life is allowing ourselves those little treats to enjoy. It's easy to spend our time trying to find grocery bargains and saving a buck on clothes, but sometimes you just need something that's fun and frugal just for you; that doesn't take a lot of time or money, but it gives you a chance to just indulge yourself for a moment. 

My Beautiful Thrifty Treat for today is music. Sometimes I get that shopping bug where I just want to buy something, so I keep a list of songs I want to get for my iPod. Whenever I feel the need for a little pick-me-up, I'll spend $0.99 on a song I've been wanting. It costs less than a dollar, so it's not going to break my budget, and I get to look forward to listening to the song and adding it to my playlists. I am definitely a music lover, so 3 1/2 minutes of a great song is a real bargain for $0.99, in my opinion. 

If you don't have an mp3 player, then just pull out an old cd with a great song you haven't heard in awhile. Take those 3 1/2 minutes and listen to it. You might be surprised at how the music can lift your whole mood!

Have a beautiful thrifty day!

What are some of your favorite pick-me-up songs?

  1. Came across your blog from Moneysavingmom, and I love it! I read your post about outdoor dates, and it reminded me that I NEED to invite my dear hubby out on a date, because there are sooo many free things to do!


Comments make me happy. Nice to know I'm not just sitting here talking to myself. So, thank you!
