We're all about balance here at FN, so here's one major tip we have when it comes to budgeting your monthly suweldo: allow yourself only one to two worthy splurges per payday to reward yourself for your hard work while making sure you still have enough in your budget for savings and investments. This also means choosing quality items that suit your needs (aka wag makisabay dahil lang uso).
