The month of January is often associated with a fresh start, and this year it marks the start of a new decade! January is an interesting month because on the one hand, most of us are relieved that the craziness of the holiday season is over and we’re craving some downtime. On the other hand, with our list of New Year’s resolutions freshly penned, we’re motivated to start working on our goals ASAP. Who says we can’t do both?
Treat yourself to a getaway (even just for the night!)
After a busy holiday season, a mini getaway might just be what the doctor ordered. It doesn’t have to break the bank! Find coupons for Banff Aspen Lodge, Stoney Nakoda Resort & Casino, Lake Louise Inn, Waterton Lakes Lodge Resort, Medicine Hat Lodge, and others in the 2019/20 coupon books. For extra savings, book Sunday through Thursday for the best rates – just always be sure to read the fine print on the coupon before booking.
Other ways to practice self-care
If an overnight getaway or day-trip is not in the cards, there are many ways to practice self-care without committing to 24 hours or more. Treat yourself to a fresh haircut at Chatters or First Choice Haircutters, a spa service at Skoah, or spray tan at Fabutan. Looking for an even more cost-effective option? Try a do-it-yourself spa night! Relax by yourself or invite some friends over, and ask everyone to bring their favorite snack or treat.
Now that you’ve recharged your batteries, it’s time to get to your resolutions. Maybe you’re determined to be more active in 2020. Find coupons for Repsol Sport Centre in Calgary, Genesis Place in Airdrie, The Abbey Centre in Blackfalds, Temple Fitness in Medicine Hat, City of Edmonton Recreation Centres and others in the 2019/20 books. No matter your resolution, there are always cost-effective ways to tackle your goals (and a lot of them will actually be free!).
Chinese New Year
We couldn’t write a blog about the month of January without mentioning the Chinese New Year! Celebrated on January 25th, 2020, it is also known as the Lunar New Year as it marks the start of a new lunar cycle. Some cities will host a free, public traditional dance or fireworks show, so be sure to check online for events near you. Another way to celebrate is to feast with your loved ones. Our coupon books are filled with coupons for some incredible restaurants that would make the perfect setting for ringing in the Lunar New Year, plus you get to support a local business in the process!
