You may be looking for ways to spend your change jar money. Depending on the size of your jar, you may have saved quite a bit of money to have some fun. However, even if you only have a small jar collecting change, you will still have enough money to get yourself something special, which is what change jar money is great for. It is money that you have been saving, and there is no reason you can’t use it for a treat!
If you love to get manicures, but don’t often get them, you can always use your change jar money for a visit to the nail salon. Invite a friend to come along, so that you can have a really great time just gossiping and getting your nails done. To make your manicure really special, have the manicurist do a gel manicure, which will last for quite a while and give you more bang for your buck.
If manicures aren’t your thing, but you still want to pamper yourself, spend the money on a massage. Massages are so relaxing! They ease your muscle tension and melt stress away. You might even end up feeling like you have been on a little vacation, which makes the massage well worth the cost.
3. New Makeup
Makeup is expensive, which means you may not get new makeup as often as you want to. However, you can use the money in your change jar to get some great new products. You can replace some of your old makeup, and you can even get one or two new shades of lipstick or eyeshadow that you have been dying to try. It is a great opportunity to try something new and fun!
4. Buy Something for Your Home
Every so I often, I pop into decorating stores, and I see something I would love to have for my home. Since I don’t really need these items, I often pass on getting them. If this happens to you, you could use the money in your change jar to get something you have wanted for your house. You won’t feel guilty, and you will be really happy with your purchase.
5. New Outfit
Getting a new outfit can be so much fun, and even if you haven’t saved a lot of money in your change jar, you can still get a new outfit. You just might need to look at the sales racks or be creative and go to the second hand clothing store. When shopping for your new outfit, pick out your favorite top and your favorite pair pants or skirt that you can afford with your change jar money. This way you can get something you love, and still feel like you are being responsible.
6. Theater Tickets
If you love going to the theater to see a play, the ballet, or a concert, you may want to consider using your change jar money to buy some tickets. Spending the money on event tickets is a great way to do something you love, and, if you have enough money, consider inviting a friend. You will have memorable and enjoyable night out.
7. Fancy Restaurant
Is there a restaurant that you have been dying to go to, but the price is a little above your budget? You can use the money in your change jar to go to the restaurant and have a fabulous meal. You will have an enjoyable time out, and you will be really happy you spent the money on an opportunity to indulge.
