There’s a reason why we feel a sense of reward every pay day: aside from being able to pay for bills and other household necessities, we also have the privilege to give in to our weaknesses—our guilty pleasures, so to speak.
And when we discover these things that provide us such joy and relaxation, well, they can be pretty hard to resist. Thankfully, these don’t have to burn a hole in your pocket. Read on as we share cheaper options to some of moms’ guilty pleasures (raise your hand if you can relate!):
1. Gourmet Coffee
It’s amazing how a steaming cup of this caffeinated beverage can jolt you out of sluggishness and add that burst of energy when needed. But while store-bought versions can pack a punch, they can also cost an arm and a leg a pop. Try a 3-in-1 mix that you can prepare in seconds like CafeRite. It’s priced cheaper than more popular brands in the market (P6 for Rich and Brown and P5 for Rich and Strong).
With the cronut craze sweeping through Manila, more options have now become available. The new croughnut offerings from Le Cour de France are a tasty treat in three flavors: Parmesan, Mixed Berries and Double Belgian Chocolate -- and for only P89 each, they’re more affordable than other brands. And, because they’re baked, they’re not as packed with calories.
