Cheap Little Luxuries Under $20!

Cheap luxuries - And Then We Saved

Sometimes I find little purchases that seem to make a huge, fancy difference, and all I want to do is share them!  Here are a few cheap luxuries that I love–all under $20–that are also at least a little bit practical.

Super-sizing your ice cubes will make any drink better.  Drinks get sexier and less watered down with this cheap tray.  //  I love the super-soft, delicate quality of Everlane’s U-neck tee, but all their t-shirts are luxury status.  //  This mini print from Note To Self is so classy.  //  A silver-tip light bulb is an easy update to make an exposed bulb more refined–and give off softer light.  // Fresh fragrances for both guys and gals are a nice change of pace every once in a while.  //  Coconut oil seems a little extravagant in the grocery store, but consider its millions of uses in cooking and beauty.  It’s awesome as a hair product alone!  //  A gorgeous handmade soap is a step up from the usual pump for guests or gifts.  //  I love this darling tiny scalloped dish to hold little pieces of jewelry.  Functional decor!  //  This gilded notebook is just gorgeous.  //  Nail polish seems simple, but even this small change can sometimes make all your old outfits feel fresh.


What little luxuries do you treat yourself to that make life just a bit nicer?

    I love the list! I am a huge fan of Everlane tees- they’re comfortable and the quality is great. I treat myself to small boxes of chocolate truffles every so often. At $2 a piece, it’s not cheap; but they make me happy and so I let myself indulge every so often.
