Hello. First time I've found a site explaining rewards. My first idea would be chocolate & lots of it! Not a good idea. I'm also on Soc Sec so I need rewards that are inexpensive. Any suggestions? I've read some posts but not found anything for me. emoticon

Hey Penny!
Haven't been around for a while, but hope to have more time on my hands now. I love the ideas about treating ourselves for our goals we accomplish. I've spent the last 24 years focusing on my kids and now it's time to focus on me. I just struggle with ways to treat myself that don't involve food.
Thank you, I will be using these ideas often.

I like the grab bag idea.

Some things I've done..

Made a goal picture poster.
Bought new clothes.
Bought new exercise DVD/equipment
Went to a movie (I hardly ever take the time to go to a theater to watch a movie)
Have a "me" day.
Bought a music CD
Gave myself a spark goodie

If I think of more, I'll add to my list.

Below are some ideas I "borrowed" from an article here on SP. What ideas do you have to add to this list of ways to reward ourselves for our great work?

REWARD ROSTER CHOOSE YOUR FAVORITES AND USE THEM LIBERALLY
Compliment yourself. Write down what you would say to anyone else who accomplished what you did.
Create an actual plaque or trophy.
Give yourself badges of honor for different levels of accomplishment.
Take a vacation or weekend getaway.
Take a day off from any goal activities.
Put $1 in a jar every time you meet a goal. When it gets to $50, treat yourself.
Create a Trophy Scrapbook, where you keep mementos from your accomplishments.
See a movie.
Make a grab bag of little prizes. When you reach a significant goal, reach in and get your reward!
Go for a spa treatment or massage.
Buy yourself a gift certificate.
Take a limo ride.
Subscribe to a magazine you always wanted.
Go canoeing or do something outdoorsy.
Watch your favorite TV show.
Buy something for your hobby.
Read a funny book.
Celebrate "100% Days". If you reach 100% of your goals that day, choose two rewards.
Find some time to be by yourself.
Pay someone to do the yardwork or house cleaning this week.
Fly a kite.
