Money matters…to us not

June 2, 2009

Wifespeaks: Memoir Mondaypiglito

Until now, money has not been a problem between hubby and I. I remember even when we were still dating we would go dutch at times or he would pay for our lunch then I would pay for dinner later on (we used to work together, sort of). Nothing much has changed, we  keep a single bank account and also one paypal account for all our earnings even if he gives the bigger share. My monthly government allowance goes to (my) school anyway.

Being contented at the moment as well as moderation would be the key. “Hangga’t maigsi ang kumot matutong mamaluktot, kung humaba na at lumapad ay saka mag-unat unat,” goes the Filipino cliche on spending.

While the blanket is short, learn how to bend. When it gets bigger and wider,  it is then that you can stretch.

  1. Yes, i agree. We must learn how to budget. But as we grow, dumadami din ang needs and wants natin. Our decisions will sometimes depend on how much money we have (what school to go to, what sports to take, etc.)

  2. i can relate. hehe! 🙂

    is this your new blog? tell me if i should update your link in my blog ha?

    regards to harold and the kids. 🙂

  3. Glad to know that you and your hubby are in sync when it comes to managing your personal finances. That is one of the important things that lead to a long and successful relationship.

    I love your new template. Take care. 🙂
