It's that time of the year again when a lot of people get all jumpy purchasing ornaments and yuletide decorations, as well as ponder on the unequivocally perfect present to bestow.

Ways to Spend Money Wisely

Way back before I was stripped off of innocence, it was just as expedient as smiling to my parents and uttering magic words for me to get what I want. Growing up, I would still depend on their wallets for mine to be filled. Spending what I have without the fear of going bankrupt was undeniably predictable. I guess it went along with innocence and the thought that I’m their responsibility that makes it all, well, fairish. Only now that I’m all grown up have I fully understood that money can somehow be particularly elusive. Then there’s the reality that it’s temptingly facile to spend money than to earn it.

How to Distinguish the Types of Cheapskates

You have surely encountered a cheapskate more than once in your lifetime. He might have been your annoying colleague. He could be your childhood friend who’s nowhere to be found after the purge.  There’s probably one in your clique who always avoids hanging-out but still poses as part of your elite herd. Maybe he’s your lover, torn between his non-profitable love for you and his savings account. Who knows, it must be you, but you just don’t want to be labelled as such.

Had Dealt With Chickenpox Without Spending Much

Haven't had the pox yet? You have got to read this!

It was the worst time of my dermatologically devirginized skin! It started somewhere around October of 2008. It was near the final term at school and the disease forced me to be absent for almost 3 weeks.

Halloween Cheapskate Warning: Improvised Costumes Often Lead To Epic Failure

It’s that time of the year again when people spend money to look freakishly ugly and creepy, for fun. I get it. It is when parents make their kids look like miniature zombies or Satan’s minions (I admit most of them look terrifyingly adorable, no irony here). However, those costumes, make-ups, props and all that are not for free. It’s even like, the scarier the costume, the more expensive it is. I’m telling you, multiple business cash in a lot on “ugly” during Halloween. Well, I think I can say you are sure damn lucky if you don’t need a mask to win the Scare Contest tonight, or make people along the streets run in terror trick or treating without even putting on a gruesome-like outfit (Every day is Halloween to some people.)

I would consider this, an intro for this, uh, article, and well yes, I am talking about myself, metaphorically of course, I am not little though, nor am I a birdie. So what are the steps one must make towards independence?

Philippine Nurses in Black Protest: A cheapskate nurse relates!

During those childhood times when I was still playing gullibly with my little friends, role playing scenes in a clinic or a hospital that I started thinking, I am going to be a doctor someday. However, as time passed by, due to certain unwanted occurrences, such as economic issues and my late father’s business diving to the abyss, I was brought by the thought that I ought to choose a career that would require lesser investment but would yield large income, should be medically related and in demand but would need shorter length of brain torment. That was when I started dreaming what most people in the country had dreamt as well, to become a nurse.
