A wise person once said that “Anything on sale that is not needed is expensive.”

I agree, my take here is that despite me looking high maintenance and all that , I do take budgeting seriously.

I’m a smart buyer, I would usually match my needs to my wants so I can live comfortably without exceeding from my allotted allowance.

One best way to practice this is to spot when there’s a huge sale at our favorite malls.

Guilty, I shopped a lot during the sale, but was smart enough to purchase my needs cheaper beyond its regular price. Saved a lot from this and gained the right items and products to keep my life moving.

Grateful for malls like SM on giving us the chance to shop reasonably and purposively.

With love,
