Do you consider of the leasehold of the flat when you buy your HDB?

Every now and then, we read about a mega HDB unit that is being transacted for over a million dollars. That normally becomes the talk of town for a while and before we realised, another similar article pops up in the headline. A lot of these units transacted are in established, mature old towns, such […]

Minimalism and the luxuries

Does minimalism means that we miss out on the luxuries in life? Well, it’s entirely up to you. Dave and I practice a school of minimalism where we do minimalise the stuff in our life, yet not compromising on quality. At the same time, we try not to be too extravagant about them and avoid […]

Minimising credit cards

I was chatting with a good friend of mine the other day, and she told me that her husband had lost his wallet. Worse thing is, aside from the cash, everything else was inside, the ID card, credit card etc. The first thing I asked was, “I hope you guys have called the banks and […]

Purchasing with your real hourly wage

Dave wrote a post the other day that made me think deeply about. The article, titled “Knowing your real hourly wage” resonated with many and was relatively well received by our readers. I wrote about “a dollar for utilitsation” previously, which discusses how we assign a dollar per ustilisation for usage of our stuff, mainly […]

Minimalist cooking

When we moved over to our new place, we didn’t really get much kitchen utensils. Granted that we did go to the value store to get some cups and utensils during the first few days we moved in, for the rest of the items, including the cookware, plates and dishes, they were gifted by my […]
