Ahhh…the spa! There is nothing more purely soothing and relaxing than a day at the spa. But, have you SEEN the prices a luxurious spa charges!? Right, for most of us a luxury day at the spa is not really a reasonable idea. But, for under $20 we can stock up on a few of our favourite bath and beauty products and still splurge in a lovely spa day at home. But, without completely bankrupting ourselves! Here are my favourite picks:
Lavandin Blackberry Soap – $4.50
There is nothing more de-stressing than a natural lavender soap. This lavandin blackberry soap is the perfect one to use on spa day. It smells utterly delicious, and will relax you as you soak away in a warm bath.
Relaxing Bath and Shower Gel – Olive Petitgrain – $4.50
This relaxing bath and shower gel is ideal whether you like a long, soothing soak in the tub OR a long, steamy shower! Combines Petitgrain essential oils and olive oil to make an enriching gel that bubbles and leaves a light, yet lingering herbal aroma.
Apricot Exfoliating Scrub – $5.95
Apricot powder provides a gentle, yet natural exfoliant in this Apricot scrub. Contains more than 98% natural ingredients, and no colorants added.
Set of 4 Luxury Hand Creams – $14.95
This beautiful set of 4 hand creams is perfect for spa day! Our hands always need a bit of extra attention – and with shea butter, and organic aloe vera – these rich hand creams really soothe dry skin. The four beautiful scents this set includes are: Bourbon Vanilla Hand cream, Mango Coriander hand cream, Olive Petitgrain hand cream, and Coconut Hand cream. (Feel like sharing? Pick up another set as a lovely gift for a friend!) The individual tubes are ideal to keep in a glove compartment in your car, or always in your purse.
Lavender Polishing Foot Scrub – $11
Our poor aching feet deserve a little pampering, too! After a good soak in some warm, bubbly water (a splash of bubble bath or body wash will do nicely), use this foot scrub to ease away rough skin. This foot scrub is made with beautiful ingredients: lavender oil, and apricot kernel powder to provide the scrubbing action to ease away rough skin. Finish off with some rich foot cream, and your feet will thank you!
Spa day, here we come! We hope that these Yves Rocher products will inspire you to indulge yourself in a spa day at home. Finish off the relaxing effects by putting on Spa-inspired CD or Spotify playlist to make your home truly feel more spa-like.
There are times when all of us suddenly find ourselves needing some extra cash. Maybe you work a freelance job, or maybe you lost your job entirely. (In which case – I’m very sorry to hear that. There aren’t many things as stressful as that.) Or, maybe you’re a student whose student loan is not stretching as far as it needs to. There are many, many situations in which a person just needs a little extra money! And sometimes, you need some cash right away.
Today, we’re going to talk about five easy ways to make money from home. Of course, all of these ideas are completely legitimate and don’t cost YOU a penny! Please leave your ideas for quick, easy and legit money making ideas from home in the comments section. We love to hear from you!

Dog walking – If you have friends or family who work full-time and are dog owners, well – you may have found the solution to your low-cash problem! Let your friends know that you’re available for dog walking. Or, you can even go around your neighborhood with a few flyers you print up on your computer. It might turn into a regular side gig for you.
Sell your stuff! (Locally) Selling your stuff online is super easy, and you have a bunch of options. There’s places like https://kijiji.ca or Craigslist. These allow you to list items for sale, and then you meet up with local people to exchange the goods for cash. Please always be careful when completing these transactions. Police departments often recommend meeting potential customers in a public area – or even right in the parking lot of the police station to feel extra safe.
Sell your stuff (Globally) – You can also earn money quickly by offering something you own – let’s say a guitar you never use – online on eBay. eBay now has many more selling options, allowing you to enter a ‘Buy it Now’ price, so that customers immediately buy and pay for the item. Yay, that is just the cash infusion you need! This means you can earn some money TODAY instead of waiting a week for an auction to end. Just be sure to set your price carefully. Research what other similar guitars have sold for, ensuring that you get a good amount for your old guitar. But, price it competitively enough so that customers want to buy it quickly! When customers pay via Paypal (and most do), you will get a quick payment that you can use right away. Hurray! Also research how much shipping will cost you. You don’t want excessive shipping fees to eat up all your profit!
Return something – If you need money fast, you can return something you’ve already purchased (with the receipt) to get a refund. That money then is returned back to you in the original form of payment – onto your credit card, or if you paid with debit – right back into your bank!
Do a freelance gig on Fiverr– Fiverr is a game changer for creative types. Why? It is an international marketplace to find gigs. You can provide writing services, create graphics (such as logos or even entire websites), or even do voiceovers! While the site is called Fiverr (meaning that small gigs on the site used to start at payment of $5) – the assignments you get NOW can earn you far more than that! We’re talking $30 and up. If you’re a writer, graphics designer or other type of creative genius – then you might be on to a real winner here. The more assignments you complete the more you’ll end up earning, as your reputation improves in the Fiverr community.
Don’t stress about needing money – take a deep breath, and put that energy instead into selling something you have to earn some money right now, this very moment! You can sell services like dogwalking, or you can sell old junk you have sitting around your home. (I’m looking at you toaster oven that still resides in its box.) OR, you can share your digital creative skills and earn some quick cash. It just takes a little effort, and your sadly empty wallet will soon have a little more weight to it.
Clearly.ca is one of my favourite spots to search out new glasses and contacts. Use the above code to save an easy $10 off $99 or more on contact lenses. Easy peasy, and an extra $10 bill still safely stored away in your wallet. Where it should be!
