Reward Yourself


It is FRIDAY!  You have worked hard whether you are a stay at home mom or you punch a time clock from 9AM – 5PM.  If you have taken any of my challenges this week, you have definitely worked hard.  Personal growth is tough.  Take it from one who knows!

Whenever you accomplish something, you should reward yourself.  I know you are thinking – no time, no money, right?  Maybe you are thinking “I didn’t do anything worth celebrating this week”.  The truth is that there is always something to CELEBRATE.  It can be getting to the gym for workout, getting caught up on the household chores or maybe you just feel good.

Rewarding yourself on a weekly basis can be beneficial for your mood, and your motivation. You deserve it, so here are 20 ways to do it…

1. Get a manicure. Homemade, in front of the television or at the salon, it will make you feel great instantly.  I make a mess with nail polish so I save time by using Jamberry.

2. Take a bubble bath. The ultimate relaxation, and take your time!

3. Put money aside for a trip. Saving a specific amount each week will help you achieve a bigger treat like a trip.

4. Go out for dinner. Whether it is to your favorite restaurant, to your mom’s house, or to eat fast food…

5. Indulge in a sweet treat. Or salty. And don’t feel guilty about it.

6. Watch a movie in bed. Slip in your comfiest pajamas and enjoy.

7. UNPLUG!!! Take time off the Internet. We all need a break from the outside world, and during that time, you’ll be able to do anything, and you won’t be disturbed.

8. Read a book. Or a magazine.

9. Pick up flowers at your local market. This little attention will bring joy into your home.


10. Listen to loud music. And don’t forget to dance!

11. Have a glass of wine. Invite your friends for dinner, and chat with them.


12. Wander around town. There are probably many areas that you’ve never seen. A little bit of surprise can’t hurt.

13. Look at old memories. This is a great way to make you smile.

14. Call a friend or a family member. Someone you haven’t talked to in a while, or someone you talk to every day.

15. Cook your favorite meal. And don’t forget to turn the music on while you cook!

16. Sleep 15 more minutes. Or go to sleep early.

17. Write in a diary. It is so liberating, and very amusing to read later in your life.

18. Organize a picnic. What better way to enjoy the weather?


19. Go to the cinema.

20. Go shopping. Window shop and try clothes on that are “not your usual style”.  Who knows you may find something you like.

Rewarding yourself doesn’t have to take a lot of money, it is a chance to pamper you.  The CELEBRATE your awesomeness.

What will you do to REWARD yourself this weekend?

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!

Business Tips and Tricks, Hope Wissel

Organizing With Thirty One Gifts

Today’s post is a re-print of a blog by the Joyful Organizer.  I LOVE her blogs and she has some great tips for all areas of your life.  This one talks about what else… two Thirty one products.

The Joyful Organizer has been a fan of Thirty One Gifts for a while now.  They have some fun new products I wanted to share with you.  I also wanted to inspire you.  Here are some ways to organize things that I commonly find in my client’s homes.  It’s not about replicating what I’m doing here, it’s about thinking about how you can make a difference in your own home and daily life.  Scroll down to enter to win a set of Oh Snap Bins (embroidery included!).

I was able to try out a set of Oh Snap Bins.  They come in a set of three small bins. The patterns range from whimsical and bright to subtle and sophisticated.  At the time I’m writing this, there are seven to choose from.  Each little bin has a set of snaps.  These come into plan if you want to keep all the pins next to each other.  Snap them together and they will stay put.  Each bin also has a loop on it so you can hang it off of a bar or from a single hook.  Take a look at some of the things that would great in this set of totes.  Use them together or separately.  They are shown here on a Command Hook.

The next item I’m going to share with you is one of the greatest bargain’s in organizing products.  The Essential Storage Tote is just $28 and can be used for just about anything.  And I mean anything.  It’s made of a durable material that’s easy to clean, quick to dry and stands up to whatever you throw at it.  The nylon straps are easy to carry and the the base of this tote allows it to stand on it’s own and hold a lot of gear.  Here are some items that can be stored in this tote.  I had fun looking around to find things that were loose in the car, on the floor, etc.

Clockwise from top left:

Clothes-this makes a great mini laundry basket!  Awesome for little kids to carry around

Books-Library books going to and from the library….keeping them in one spot means you’re less likely to forget them.

Gym Bag-Since it’s open and fires quickly, this bag won’t stink!

Dog Gear-I put in my dogs’ life jackets…awesome after a salty swim!

Beach Bag-Towels and pails and sunscreen, go my!  It all fits in here.

Sports equipment-Store dirty, smelly gear that normally rolls around the car in one bing that’s easy to grab and bring to the field.

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
