Giving yourself a fun allowance

As cliche as it might sound, the saying "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" is very true. Swinging the pendulum in the opposite direction is very tempting when you are trying to get your finances in order but try not to become obsessed to the point of not enjoying any of the fruits of your labor.
Every week that I got pay, I took $25 to buy something that I didn't need but enjoyed. It ranged from cd's to lipsticks. It was my small way of enjoying some of my hard work and discipline.

As eager as you might be to get on the straight and narrow, you have to give yourself some room to flex. Here's another cliche that holds true "Everything in moderation".

Just because you are tighting the belt, no one has to know. Instead of spending $20 for a pedi, go ahead and buy a bottle of good nail polish and do it yourself. Perhaps going to the movies is your thing. Catch the matinee and enjoy yourself.
