day 556 – rightful owner

image

after two months delay, the money finally arrived in the hands of the rightful owner. i waited far too long for this paycheck i was afraid my bank account would dry up before i would have any to refill. this is going to save some of my crazy spendings since christmas holidays. paydays are the best, often forget how good it feels to hold the cheque in my hand, or multiple cheques in this case

day 448 – paying bills

image

it’s that time of the month to do my finance when bills and receipts are flying all over the place and i am scrambling to gather all. this is when i wished i did more window shopping and less actual shopping and impulsive buys to minimize the hole that is now burning in my wallet. it all comes down to resistance and make sure it doesn’t cut too much into my savings

twenties series: [two] money

money isn’t everything because it’s not the only indication as to how successful we are in life. it’s true money and success have direct correlation because we can only do so much without money. most of us work hard in life through two decades of school and work for four decades after that, not to see how much money we can accumulate in our bank account. our wealth is determined by how we impact our community and how much knowledge we get out of life, and not how many zeros our bank statement shows. no one going through school imagines or wishes to be a future hobo sitting on the street asking for passerbys to drop a few coins. if we don’t learn to use and manage it properly, what good will that do?? don’t get me wrong, no doubt number crunching is indeed important and i love money; it makes me happy when my bank account balances increases. i can almost guarantee that there isn’t anyone in the universe that doesn’t like money, i can speak for myself. what’s more important is understanding how money can facilitate us and increase our quality of life, so finding out ways to utilize money to make myself the happiest possible. not making money for the sake of making money because someone said that that is a good thing

day 327 – bills piling

image

piling on those expenses many of which i don’t know if they are considered necessities. my bank account certainly took a plunge with the recent credit card activity but maybe it’s all for a good cause. should probably limit those impulse purchases and shopping sprees. online shopping made easy, too easy

day 280 – team assist

image

received a stack of sportchek team assist cards and coupons in my mailbox today. time to go crazy and get my hands on some new gears with bigger discounts, who doesn’t like good deals. i hope i won’t be spending a fortune because this news does not sit well with my wallet nor my bank account

day 263 – shopping spree

image

much needed shopping day at metro on my actual weekend to upgrade my wardrobe since i haven’t made any additions lately. it’s crazy how fast i can spend but how long it takes to earn, and exponentially harder to save up. at least time constraints doesn’t allowed me to do this too often

day 67 – paycheck day

image

beginning of the month usually means a lot of cash flow going in and out of my bank accounts. only problem is it’s usually more out than in. controlling my expenses and managing my credit card bills can be a huge hassle. nonetheless, the feeling of poor continues with or without paychecks
