Happy New Year 2013! I hope you had (especially if you are living in Asia) or, are having a wonderful first day of 2013. I had a good day but only felt sad after I read a not so good news from my homeland. Thanks God that it is not really that bad. My father is currently confine in a hospital. I hope and pray that everything will be fine soon.
Back to the main topic.. Did you had your first spending during the first day of the year? Last night, my friend invited me to go with her in an Asian store. I did not declined her invitation. In short, we drove there this afternoon. The store was closed but since we know the owner, we ended up buying some grocery stuffs. First, the store owner invited us for a coffee. She also prepared some food and I ended up eating my first lunch in her house.
After the chit-chatting, story-telling and conversations, we went to to her store to buy some grocery stuffs. I ended up buying a pack of fish and some chips. My first spending for January 1, 2013 was 12.00 Euros. I believed it is not so bad.
This year, I will try my best to practice frugality. I want to ask the question, "Do I need this this"?, before buying a certain thing. In terms of buying food and grocery stuffs, I will buy only those that are enough for our consumptions. This means that as much as possible, no more throwing of food this year.
One of my new year's resolution is to spend money wisely and with frugality.
Have a wonderful and more fruitful New Year 2013 to everyone!
