Like my toes?

I do!

Today I got a pedicure :) I love pedicures. After all what woman in her right mind would go out in sandals without perfect toes? Okay, I'm sure plenty but not me. I don't want anyone seeing my toes unless they're perfect (or close to it)

But on my budget I can NOT afford a $50 spa pedicure. So, what's a girl to do?

Befriend a manicurist of course!

Well, we've actually been friends for years. I know I'm so lucky :) Even better - I like her a lot!

For the past two years we've been making a trade. I pass down Kaitlyn's wardrobe and in return I get free pedicures whenever we can fit them in our schedules. I help her daughter look good, she helps my toes look good - saves us both some real money.

So, you may not know a manicurist but we all have talents and we can always make trades. We can always trade for babysitting but there are other things. If someone hands you down clothes is there something nice you can do for them? You just got a ton of free clothes - what about a gift certificate for dinner? Or just a free meal that you make yourself?

We all have talents - lets think of ways to share them and save each other some dough! What about you? Anything you trade?

  1. I'm dying to get a pedicure. It's the thing I miss most about the things we cut out of our budget since the twins arrived. I actually have my manicure license too...but it's just not the same giving yourself one. actually it's not fun at all. lol
