I always find it funny that people don’t feel they can afford the “luxury” of travel, but happily spend their hard earned money on beauty products and other smaller treats. It’s important to feel good, but that shouldn’t mean you sacrifice savings for those amazing mini breaks and holidays.
Did you know that in the UK £284 million is spent a week on beauty products? If even 10% of this was saved, think how much money could be put away for a trip away!
You don’t have to cut out certain treatments or swap for cheaper brands either, here are some tips that will help you cut corners easily.
Swap Regular Treatments for DIY
Shelling out £17 every week for a manicure? It’s no secret that fresh nails are a confidence booster, but invest a few good quality polishes to do it yourself at home. With practice you’ll be as good as the manicurist in no time, and you’ll have more freedom to try new shades.
The same goes for tanning. Instead of sunbeds or spray tans, use a good quality build up tanning lotion for half the price. Choose one that doubles as a body moisturiser to cut down the clutter in your bathroom too!
Try New Products in a Beauty Box
There’s such a rush when trying a new product for the first time, but how often are you disappointed and left with an expensive bottle you won’t use again?
Beauty boxes have become popular in the last few years, for less than £15 you can have a selection of new products sent to your door every month to try. Then when you’ve picked your winners you can look into upgrading to the full size!
Use Voucher Codes to Snap Up Bargains
Most people never think to look for voucher codes when they shop online. Just because your favourite site is having a sale doesn’t mean there isn’t bargains to be had. My Voucher Codes constantly updates it’s discount codes and sales, meaning more money in your pocket.
When you save 20% on a big shop, why not put that into your travel fund? You’ll be surprised how quickly it builds meaning you have plenty of cash for those incredible summer getaways!
