5. Cut back on eating meals outside, bring your food to work
This is another win-win situation if done right. Don’t reason out that you’re too lazy to prepare food before going to work! Preparing your lunch could be done weekly or daily but regardless, it’s a good practice. It’ll exercise your culinary skills and at the same time your budgeting when grocery shopping. Also, it’ll save you from all the expensive unhealthy food you’re used to.
6. Pass up gym or yoga membership
You can always opt for exercising home with the aid of YouTube tutorials. Gym and yoga memberships are wasted most often because of the ever-changing schedule of workers.
7. Never succumb to impulse buying
Resist the temptation whispering in your ear that you need to buy this dress or that gadget. Easier said than done, right? Here’s a tip for you, the next time you walk at a store and feel the glowing red desire to impulsively buy something, ask yourself these questions:
- Do I really need it? Would it cripple me if I didn’t have it?
- How many jeepney fares am I wasting if I buy this right now?
- Will I die if I don’t buy this?
Work out a decision from your answers.
8. Be wise and take advantage of resources
You can’t properly survive this world without a little wit and strategy in life. Save up a lot of money by skipping your daily visit to the café and making your own coffee in the office pantry. Take advantage of your office WiFi and let your phone data rest. It’s also time to take advantage of the discount coupons you may happen to have.
You might be thinking “All of this just for a ticket?” and the answer to that is yes. Yes, nothing is impossible for a loyal fan who wants to see his favorite artist in the flesh. And if you’re having doubts of doing this, remember that all the announced 2018 Philippine concerts are just for half of next year, there will be more to come!
