For millions of women, sometimes the best thing in the world is the feeling of being rich — even if you're not. Countless things make women feel rich, from getting their nails done to having a high credit score. Recently, women met in an online discussion to reveal everything, big or small, that they say makes them feel filthy rich.
1. Making a Purchase Without Checking Your Account First
Any woman who ever had to stressfully check their bank account before making a purchase knows that it is accompanied by a feeling that is the opposite of feeling rich. Thankfully, as the years go by and financial situations improve, many women confess that purchasing something without doing mental gymnastics and calculations is a state of mind they love and appreciate!
2. Getting a Massage
What woman doesn't like to be treated to a relaxing (and much-deserved) massage? Out of all the things that women confess to make them feel rich, getting massages is most popular among females. Not only are massages relaxing, but it has obvious physical and emotional benefits as well.
3. Filling Up Your Gas Tank
Everyone remembers when you only had enough money to put five or ten dollars into your gas tank. According to countless women, the feeling of filling up their tank completely every time they visit a gas station is unparalleled! One woman says that “true wealth is filling up a gas tank,” a sentiment I heartily agree with!
4. Getting Your Nails Done Regularly
The little things in life matter most; countless women admit that a regularly-scheduled manicure or pedicure is one of their favorite things. “Being able to get my nails done every month makes me feel rich,” confesses one woman. “It might be stupid, but it was an unattainable luxury for me. I used only to be able to afford it once every few months, if that. It's nice to know that every month, I'll be able to have some alone time and get pampered.”
5. Not Needing To Calculate Grocery Cost
If you grow up poor, coming into any amount of money can make you see life from an exciting perspective. One woman explains the joy of not needing to pinch pennies at the supermarket. “I grew up pretty poor and do well for myself now, but honestly, small things like not having to calculate how much groceries cost to make sure I can afford them make me feel rich,” she admits.
6. Being Debt-Free
In the eyes of many, being debt-free and being wealthy are synonymous. When millions struggle with making payments due to an ever-increasing debt load, not having any debt feels like winning the lottery in many situations! Even if it means you have no cash on hand, being debt-free means your future is looking bright.
7. Wearing Expensive Perfume
It's okay to splurge on designer items once in a while. Many women reveal treating themselves with designer perfumes makes them feel like royalty! “Knowing you own something from Versace or Gucci is a nice feeling,” explains one woman. “I can't afford to buy anything else from those stores, though, so I stop at perfume.”
8. Having a High Credit Score
Anyone who has dug themselves out of a low-credit-score hole knows the triumph of finally seeing your credit score inch higher and higher weekly. Many women report that finally attaining a high credit score made them more confident and gave them a feeling of being wealthier than they were.
9. Being Able To Travel
Being financially independent enough to travel the world brings pride and joy to any woman. After all, as children, we all thought traveling the world was only for wealthy people! “Being able to travel and experience new cultures, traditions, and nature makes me feel like I won the lottery, even if I stay in a hostel and share a room with ten other people!” one savvy female traveler exclaims.
10. Owning a Metal Credit Card
For countless women, there isn't a more satisfying sound than the “plunk” sound their metal credit card makes when placing it on a retail store's counter.
