Read what you can’t afford to do…

According to ABC News, Paltrow detailed a typical day for a GOOP reader who asked how she finds balance between being a mom and having a career. The Oscar-winning actress, who makes $33 million, and her friends investor Juliet de Baubigny and fashion designer Stella McCartney responded with their lifestyle tips that don’t come at a cheap price.

Personal Trainer: Approximately $60-70 for hour-long session
“I’ve found that having a trainer come to my house on a Monday really motivates me — she’s knocking at the front door so going back to sleep is NOT an option.”

Jura Capresso Impressa Z5 Espresso & Coffee Maker: $2,300
“When I got downstairs this morning at the crack of whenever, the coffee machine said “ERROR 8″ and wouldn’t let me make the cup I had been dreaming about.”

Perfect Design DVD set: $79.95
“I’m currently obsessed with the Tracy Anderson Method and do the Perfect Design DVD three times a week. I even take the DVD traveling!”

iPad: $499 to $829
“I bring my iPad and use the Flipboard app to curate my social media (Facebook, Twitter and categories that are important to me: business, technology, style, design, fashion).”

Acupuncture treatment: Approximately $60 to $100
“I have acupuncture at 9.30pm at night. It’s a wonderful end of the day.”

Shaklee’s vanilla shake mix: $57.55
“If I’m really in a rush I have a Shaklee vanilla shake.”

Blowout in New York City: Approximately $60
“A great time saver is to have a weekly blowout. This means that you don’t need to wash your hair each day — the time that you save with a blowout can save you minutes in the morning.”

Lesson from a makeup expert in New York City: Approximately $100
“I was given an amazing present of a makeup lesson with Wallet Lubrich. She taught me how to do my daily makeup in 5 minutes. No joke, I can dress, do my make up and be out the door in 15 minutes.”

Celebrity stylist: Approximately $200 for hour long session
“Got home and had a fitting with super stylist Elizabeth Saltzman for the upcoming Nashville trip (what to wear, what to wear?) from 1-2.”
