About 10 years ago, I read a tip in a magazine that recommended this: Put $5 in your rain jacket pocket, so on some rainy day you’ll find it and treat yourself to a nice shampoo from a local salon. I’ll admit, I’ve never done it, but the idea’s stuck with me. Given inflation, I’m boosting the allowance to $10, but the concept’s still the same—these little pick-me-ups will make your day, without breaking your budget. Better yet: now that Amazon exists, these little luxuries don’t even require a trip to the salon, but are just a click away.
