-Movies- I dont go to cinemas anymore to watch movie. I would rather eat a good meal hehe.
-Make up- I dont wear any except for a lip crayon and sometimes powder.
-Parties & Drinks
- (for abroad-based Girltalkers like me) Remittance fee. I make sure to remit money only to one account then do a fund transfer for my mom and brother; that way I only pay the fee once for the transaction

anything "extra"- i do not have a lot of things.okay na ako sa 2 relo, 3 pairs of earrings, etc.

imitations- i dont get the idea of spending thousands for class aaa products. it's better to settle sa affordable brands basta orig.

gadgets - kung kaya pa naman gamitin at hindipa sira yung luma, okay na ko dun
movies - most of the time i can download for free sa internet. at least yun pwede ko pang ulit-ulitin panoorin
cable TV - wala rin namang masyadong nanunuod ng tv sa bahay. puros telenovela lang mahilig mga tao sa amin so pwede na regular TV stations.
bags - kung hingi sale, hindi ako bibili. i buy neutral colors para pwede i-match sa maraming type at color ng clothes.
drinks when eating out - water na lang. mas healthier pa.

Eating out at expensive places. A lot of my friends do this and they get absolutely no judgment from me, if it makes them happy then I'm happy, but personally I can't bring myself to spend thousands to go food tripping.

1. designer bags
basta lumagpas ng 5k yung bag, pagiisipan ko na. Though ngayon pinagiisipan ko bumil ing LV, pero nakakapanghinayang e. pocket money na lang for travels.


2. branded clothes
I buy sa dept store lang and i always get praises that it looks good on me. wala naman sa brand yan, nasa nagdadala. though sometimes i buy branded pero classic styles and hindi yung nawawala sa uso.


3. shoes (worth 5k+)
im not really particular sa shoes basta comfy. pawisin din kasi yung paa ko and im size 5 kaya mahirap maghanap ng shoes. and eto din kasi yung pinaka nalalaspag na gamit so i buy sa cheap buyt trustworthy stores.


4. high-end salon (haircut for P500? no way)
Once lang ako nagbayad ng mahal sa salon. I paid 6k for my hair color kay alex carbonell sa gb. ok naman pero medyo wild color kasi yun so i pinagawa ko sa salon. the rest diy na lang. haircut costing 300+, no-no na ako. :p


I'm more on the pratical side. basta kaya ko gawin, gagawin ko. And I dont like to invest on material things, di ko naman sila madadala sa langit. unlike if you spend it on experience, pag nag backtrack ka sa life mo, masaya ka.  :)
Happiness is a choice.

-starbucks coffee or any expensive coffee ..ok lang once in awhile pero everyday? nope!

-gadgets-- I still have my Iphone 4s..obsolete na to dito pero Im not into gadgets talaga.. my ipad was just a gift pa nga.

-fine dining restos-- Id rather cook or eat sa cheap restaurant na masarap than in fine dining.

-parties -- I dont like having grand celebrations... a simple dinner with few close friends will do.

-3g subscriptions,post paid lines -- I dont text/call often plus theres wifi in office and bahay so no need for me

-designer shoes-- although its so tempting to get those valentino/ CL/Chanel espadrilles/ manolos shoes, I just cant. hanggang Tory Burch lang talaga ako.

--Movies/concerts--- Id rather watch online



I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud.

Parties
Movie tickets (except pag halimbawa avengers or a second chance haha)
Lately, restaurants

We travel a lot but we dont book expensive hotels because we spend a whole day outside anyway. There are a lot of cheap accommodations!

I do not spend money on many things like too expensive food or clothing. I do not think it is worth spending hundreds on some calories or a t-shirt. However, I have a very expensive hobby and it is an online Rich Prize casino. I like to play for real money. But it is vital to control how much you spend otherwise, it is a high probability to lose everything you have.

Gambling, raffle.  I have 1 designer bag and 1 watch tapos the others, mid range lang. I refuse to spend more money on additional designer bags/watch.
