Lately i been thinking alot how to refrain myself or us as a family from buying stuff all the time even like going to a small supermarket.
NOT BUYING THINGS EVERYDAY.
I realized that in a week its like 3x we did groceries. Its that normal?
Groceries like wet food (chicken, vege etc), milk, bread, eggs, frozen food (dania’s recess food)…. Those stuff are the one that makes us keep coming back to the shop 😑 So when that happens other things also will go into the cart!
But there’s one time i didnt bring cash. Inside my purse is just enough to buy some can drinks, and when i remembered that at home one of the food need to buy already because its going to finish soon, so hub ask do i have cash? I said no, if you want go and withdraw some money. Nothing happen, end up didnt even stop by at any shop! I like that way!
Nowadays i train myself to hold my heart when i want to buy something. I ask:
“do we need it immediately?”
“Is it that important to have it TODAY?”
“Is there anything at home that can be replace with the things that i wanna buy?”
I told myself everytime that “IT CAN WAIT” 😑 sooooooo hard ok! Not easy! Especially when it comes to the groceries stuff 😔
I wanna be cheapskate person from now on. Even buying my book i think twice but still i said atleast once a month ONLY. I will try! No more charity whatsoever.
No more ‘big’ toys for the kids. Unimportant stuff from Daiso or Kaison. Yes! Im like that when going to that shops! Buy things that not even important. This term is going to be the hardest one too since i like option in anything in my household!
Bagi kelonggaran when comes to lunch during week days because school day usually tapau day. I estimated around rm20 including drinks. STILL i will try my best not to tapau everyday, sometimes maybe i can bring food from home even if its just some fried eggs 😅
CROSSING MY FINGER!! 😂
