This month, I’m using jewelry bribery to motivate myself to change some eating habits. The task is not to lose weight, but to eat healthy. The payoff can’t cost too much; so here are some things I love from Etsy, all except one under $25 USD.
The artists and vintage sellers on Etsy have so much to choose from in the way of unusual alternatives to mass-produced costume jewelry from the stores.
How about you? Does self-bribery motivate you? What’s the best reward?
