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.
“Therapy would be my response to this thread. It just feels like therapy is something that can have life changing effects on people yet most just can’t afford it.” said one and was agreed by many.
“On this note, I’d also like to see the doctor, dentist, and optometrist more. My body feels a bit in disrepair, and having some regular medical care would probably help bring me back up to speed” added 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.
“Trips abroad and stays in expensive hotels.” said one
“Travel. No big plans around trips but just deciding to spend a week or two in another country because I saw it mentioned somewhere and it sounded nice. With money as no object airfare hotels food luggage and all that wouldn’t matter as expenses to plan or save for and it would be so awesome to feel that freedom to just go somewhere whenever the idea strikes you.” added another.

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.
“Fancier and more frequent date nights with the wife” shared one.
“I second this. What I would pay for more time with my wife. It doesn’t even have to be fancy. My favorite thing in the world to do is get tipsy with her and just chat with. Getting caught up in the stresses and responsibilities of being parents can really make you dismiss from mind how much you truly enjoy each other.
When the kids are away and my wife and I have time to let our hair down, we enjoy each other so much. There’s no contest. We’re just best buds.” shared another.
“I’d buy a house…so tired of how I’m treated as renter but I mean…I can’t buy so I don’t get to choose my own paint or have pets or whatever other rules that come up with. Then your rent is twice what the mortgage would be if you owned. Less ownership MORE restrictions. Blows.” ssaid one.
“Art classes. All of the art classes, all over the world.” said one
“This is the way. Glass blowing, pottery throwing, stone sculpting, gem faceting, blacksmithing, oil painting, batik printing, the works.” added anogher.
