Since it’s still a bit chilly, you might ask. “Why should I prepare for summer?” Here’s why:
It’s the season where you spend most of your free time outside, and it’s also the season where you can’t hide under your coat or snow boots or gloves anymore. It’s time to start thinking about your spending plan – specifically your “clothing & personal maintenance” account.
If you’re following the spending plan, then you should consider using funds from that special account:
- You most definitely need a manicure and pedicure for all those wonderful summer sandals you will be wearing. Cracked heels and chipped nails are not in style.
- Also this is the time to slim down & lose your winter bulge. It is a great time to go for walks and get those legs and arms in shape. Your summer clothing will thank you.
- Get any waxing done before the first hot week.
- Check your summer wardrobe; discard what you did not wear last summer. Chuck out the torn garments, or those that are pilling.
- Don’t forget to include a new haircut and colour – if you’d like.
- Book a Facial – these are important to get rid of the winter dryness from your face and neck.
- Get those eyebrows on fleek! Check your face for any stray hairs.
- Take some time to check out your summer shoes. Consider the cost of repairing them. A shoemaker can charge $20.00 plus tax to put on new tips. Summer sales are on right now. For a few more dollars you could purchase a new pair.
- It’s not okay to wear a shirt all wrinkled out of the dryer. It’s just not cool. Invest in an iron.
- Those brown or black shoes, with salt marks and scuffs toes, is not the way to go.
- Make an appointment for a manicure and pedicure. Manicures and pedicures for men are okay.
- Dry crack lips are not inviting. Use a lip balm.
Don’t wait for the first warm day to jump into summer gear just because it’s steaming outside. We all know that the first long weekend in May can be hot. Get prepared now.
If you have your clothing & personal maintenance account in place, you are fired up and ready to take summer on!
