The holidays are coming and we all know what that means: Pinch your pennies and stay in for the night so you can afford all those gifts for friends and family. Don’t think you can stand missing out on all the fun Atlanta has to offer? That’s alright because we’ve put together a list of cheap thrills — Atlanta style — to get you through the season without breaking the bank!
With a colder season comes dry skin, and with dry skin comes the never-ending search for an easy and inexpensive way to get you through. Look no further because we found these wonderful face masks from Sephora for only $6! With options ranging from an avocado nourishing and repairing mask to an orchid anti-aging mask, you’re sure to find one that fits your needs.
If you aren’t looking for a major change in hair style, it’s hard to spend all that money on just a trim. Give students a chance to show their skills at the Paul Mitchell The School Atlanta, and get a quick cut and dry for just $15 ($20 for Phase Two students).
Busy, busy, busy — that’s all we’ve been hearing (and thinking) lately! Being busy means less time for primping and a demand for something quick and easy to keep us looking good. We’ve got you covered in the hair department with this amazing travel-size dry shampoo by R+Co we found at Melrose & McQueen for $17. Though that might sound expensive, trial sizes are great ways to use high-end, quality products at a price that’s slightly easier on the wallet.
Support local business and hydrate your skin at the same time! Lorelai’s has these great BeBody Essentials body butters, made in Roswell, in flavors like lavender, gardenia, almond, coconut lime and more for $9 each.
Reduced admission cost to the High Museum
Prices are constantly rising in Atlanta; from a tank of gas to concert tickets, we can’t catch a break without a coupon! The High Museum of Art has broken that trend and recently cut the cost of admission to a flat rate of $14.50 for everyone ages 6 and older. Sounds like a new favorite date night spot to us!
Tour Monday Night Brewing
Local is always better, right? We think so, too — especially when it comes to our beer. This fall, take a tour of Atlanta’s very own Monday Night Brewing for just $12 and leave with a complimentary pint glass and a belly full of their local brews!
Weekly specials at YEAH! Burger
When you’re hungry and have leftovers at home, it’s hard to make that choice to go out and spend money on food. Take a deep breath because YEAH! Burger in West Midtown wants you to be able to get out of the house, even during the week! With specials like 50-cent wings and $1 PBR cans on Wing Wednesday, it makes it a little harder to feel guilty while eating out.
Having a night out with the girls can be a life saver, but there’s no need to empty your bank account just to have a little fun. Head to Ribalta Pizza on Wednesday nights for their Ladies’ Night, where you can have all the Prosecco and wine you want for $10!
Do as LeVar Burton does, and “Take a look; it’s in a (tiny) book … ” We love these adorable tiny literature books, $6.50 each, that tell the classic tales in miniature form. Get a few at Jilli Boutique for yourself, as a hostess gift or to pack in your carry-on for your next flight.
The struggle is real when it comes to staying healthy while not over doing it. Our new favorite (and filling) meal is the açai bowl from Dtox for just $9. With açai, fresh fruit, coconut and granola, this is the perfect meal to give you the energy to start your day.
That’s right, you read correctly: DE-composition book. Besides this notebook being made from post-consumer recycled paper, we couldn’t get over the adorable wildlife and cute play on words on the cover of this notebook from Target for $8.
Need some green in your space but aren’t ready for the maintenance and imminent death of said plant? Air plants at Young Blood Boutique are the answer — and we’re in love! Ranging from $8 to $25, depending on the size, you can get your own pot-less plant. The only requirement is that you soak your plant in water once a week (SO easy!).
