In today’s world, money plays a crucial role in our daily lives. It enables us to purchase the things we need and want. But for many of us, the reality is that money is often in short supply.
Financial constraints can make it difficult to afford even the most basic necessities, let alone the things we desire. Recently, someone asked on Reddit, what’s one thing you would treat yourself to regularly if money was no problem?
Here are the top 8 picks.
1. Housekeeping Services
Most of us lead busy lives, juggling multiple responsibilities such as work, family, and social commitments. As a result, they often find that they don’t have enough time to devote to cleaning and maintaining their living spaces.
“We have a weekly housekeeper. Honestly one of the better decisions we’ve made. Takes about 2/3 hours for our 1 bedroom apartment. It’s great” said one.
“I hire cleaners less to pick up and organize my stuff and more to actually CLEAN, which is the part of the process I dislike. Like, scrubbing tiles, and getting all the cracks and stuff. A pro cleaner will come and make you say “OMG, I didn’t know my bathroom could be this clean!” shares another user.
“Honestly, for me it’s mostly about having someone else come clean the kitchen and bathroom. I’ll do it, but I hate it. So I have a maid I call once or twice a month to come by and do what I just don’t have energy for after my 70 hour weeks.” shared another.
2. Personal Cook/Nutritionist
“Having my meals made for me, and them being healthy meals, would be so nice.” said one.
“Think I would never have takeout food/bad food ever again.” shared another.
Massages are relaxing, and if I had the extra money, I would spend on this too.
‘…To your point, I’d totally do massages multiple times a week or even every day if I could afford it, but with as much stuff as many people spend their money on, having a massage a month or something is not terribly expensive and can have a lot of positive effects.” said a user.
Many people would like to travel but are unable to do so because the cost of traveling can be quite high. Factors such as airfare, lodging, transportation, and meals can add up quickly, making it difficult for some people to afford a trip.
6. Dates With My Spouse
Many people find it difficult to make time for their spouses due to busy schedules and demanding work or personal responsibilities. Balancing a career, raising children, and managing household tasks can leave little time for couples to spend together.
