My spending habits

Missniao recently wrote a post on how she managed to save about 50% of her take home pay. It was pretty inspiring, and quite a fun read to see how a 27 year old millennial managed to do so. Of course, we could all start pointing out stuff like how she still stays with her […]

Clothing shopping ban – 5 months on

6 months ago, I wrote an article of how I was going to implement a clothing shopping ban for myself in 2017. Since it’s almost mid-year, I thought it would be good to provide a mid-year review of this exercise. The verdict so far… Yes, I have stuck on to my shopping ban. In fact, […]
