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, […]

Losing your $14,000 a month job at 48

I came across a recent article on The Straits Times, of an individual losing his high paying job at the age of 48. It seems that previously, he was a high-flyer in the banking industry and was drawing about $14,000 a month (I think that might have been exclusive of bonus, but even if it […]

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 […]

Of birthdays and Valentine’s day

This is quite a belated post, I mean Valentine’s Day was more than a month ago right? Why do I even bother to right something about that now? Well to be honest, I had worked on a posting that I had intended to post on Valentine’s Day. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to finish writing it […]

Having the right people around you

Which is common for different groups of friends. When we are with certain groups of people, topics tend to revolve around certain things and issues and also, […]

Minimising credit cards

Budgeting for 2017

Justin from Root of Good recently published an article on how his family of 5 managed to live for under US$40,000 a year. Dave and I are followers of his blog and needless to say, we were extremely impressed on how they managed to achieve this, despite the fact that they have 3 kids (yes […]

Minimising diapers

I chuckled as I was typing the heading. Isn’t this an oxymoron? If we could minimise the use of diapers, we would, won’t we? Regardless of adults or babies. Since Ally was born, other than her formula milk powder, the other thing that we probably spent more of is on her diapers. (Never mind that she’s […]
