Alexander Graham Bell never invented the telephone but he invented making a business out of it. Truth hurts as much as your telephone bills.
I spend about a thousand and a half each month for my cellular postpaid bills. I won’t say it’s cheap but I definitely can afford that much because I work for it and I have the resources for it. I make the most of it, too, since I blog and create contents online.
Although I don’t want to admit it, it is not as frugal as it might sound but it is quite worth the consideration since I get what I need for my work and for my part-time job as a blogger.
When it comes to making the most out of money, it’s a non-trivial thing most Filipinos would want to achieve.
quality versus time
Let’s say Student A buys a quality pair of shoes worth Php 1500 and Student B buys a low quality pair by a famous brand for the same price.
By the end of the year, Student A would have the same pair of shoes, shiny and is still presentable, while Student B would have bought seven pairs since the shoes never lasts more than a month or two.
In the end, Student A was frugal and Student B wasted a lot of money.
SPEND MONEY TO WHAT IT’S REALLY WORTH
To understand it better, you get more of what you need (still without sacrificing quality).
Eating in a restaurant every time you want to have dinner would amount to thousands by the time you get your next pay.
Buying groceries worth Php 2000 that would last until the next pay day (you still get to eat delicious food and learn how to cook, too!)
GET FREE STUFF OR DISCOUNT
Pop culture would see someone getting free stuff or shopping only when stores are on sale as ‘cheap’, but (if you’ve read the link above) you will know that it’s not cheap. It’s being frugal.
It’s one way to save money. In fact, you get more while spending less retaining the quality.
Being cheap are when you sacrifice your money’s worth buying less expensive but non-durable/low quality items.
