When I first decided to quit my job, I knew very well that our life style will be impacted.
True enough, I am very careful in every cent I spend, unlike previously, I d spent on expensive jewelleries, bags, shoes, clothes with no hesitations.
Now, shopping means window shop with no purchasing!
Even weekend meals now with RY are in food courts and hawker centre, unlike last time we used to have expensive meals every weekends
The only time we splurged was the weekend when I first came back to SG and really missed the Italian food at Casa Roma along Bt Timah Rd.
Maybe we will go for restaurant food once a month ....... Or when there's a reason or occasion to celebrate.
Despite being jobless, I still give my parents monthly allowance.
I d rather thrift on myself then to stop their allowance totally!
Is it hard to imagine that the once materialistic high flying & income executive is leading such a frugal life style now?
I admit that sometimes I do miss the "ability & freedom" to spend (the 5 figured monthly salary had enabled me to lead a very comfortable live previously) but I do appreciate the simple live I am having now as it is pretty stress free!
Currently, the only "stress" is to think of what to cook for dinner" and wonder if the food will turn out well!
