How Did Your Finances Do This Year?

December 14, 2008

I am so proud of myself this year. I would like to think that I had managed my finances and that I had been a responsible woman (although, I still have a lot of purchases, but I must say most of them are smart purchases and real good buys! Thanks for the convenience of online shopping! Haha).

It’s funny how I would sometimes be surprised that it’s pay day once again. But never think that I am depriving myself. No, that would never happen. I can buy what I want, and I know what I want, and I never have to think twice. I can get what I want with my own money, to the point that I am actually hesistant to join any organized kris kringle, that I am worried I got nothing to list on my wish list.

But before robbers and kidnappers track me, just to be clear, I am not earning millions each day. I am just a typical employee. Maybe, the fact that I am geographically single helps me manage my finances this year. Plus I do bring packed lunch at the office (although I still buy food outside hehe), and that I make sure ATM machines are inaccessible to where I go and live. Some money-saving tips you guys might want to consider. 😉

And who says there is a global financial crisis?!
