Kathleen Peralta Haha yes exactly human as we are, we tend not to be contented. So as the law applies, the law of demand and supply. Wherein if we have enough supplies, we tend to demand even more. It's a skill to be developed over time I guess. No one is born to be that expert in budgeting. Everyone needs to undergo the worst scenarios before realizing that we need to do this and that. Going to malls are ve...

Alan Rosmadi: "Moral of the story is live within your means, and you will never go wrong."- Exactly!

Priscilla Mae Gobuyan As you mentioned, if you reach the so-called "contentment stage" it can help spending within your limits.

Thank you for posting this article as this reminded the readers, not just nurses to go low on unnecessar...
