How are you enjoying our blog posts so far?
Talking about being thrifty is what we have been doing since the start of this blog. We hope that we can share the ideas of using money wisely with more people as time goes by. As more people learn about good money management skills, more benefit can live a better and stress-free life.
What if you have an extra $150 to spare. what will you do?
Ok. If you can see, there are 3 choices, but all these 3 choices seems to be independent choices. They are not related. So if you have that money what will you do?
We all love shopping! We all love new stuff! So if you have this extra money, will you spend it away? Think carefully again. I don’t want to give you the answer. But if you have this extra money, but you don’t need extra clothes…should you buy?
2) Sign up kids for tuition
Ok. This is not difficult one. If our kids need help on their math, sure, we can get them more help. If you stay at bishan, then just go for some bishan math tuition classes nearby will do.
But the thing is, if your child is already doing well in class, do you still want to send him for tuition? Or rather, you want to give him ‘a bit of life’, so he has some spare time to learn things he may be interested in?
Ok, this is a good choice, but it’s not an easy one! When we mention SAVE, it means you are not using it to buy anything, or spend it away, even on others. You have to save it!
Plus, you must also invest it! Though $150 is not a alot, but if you do save it every month, it will total up to be a big sum. But again, investing means delayed gratification and patience. You need to wait for your investment to reap the benefits. You won’t see the benefits right away, like shopping!
So, after learning this, will you still go and invest your money?
But the main idea is, if you have extra money, how are you going to use it?
There are no right or wrong answers. There are just your decisions. But do note that whatever decision you make today, will affect the results you have tomorrow.
Have a good thought about it before doing anything.
If you’ve made your choice, share it with us below!
There are a lot of people who save money by searching for coupons that they can use in order to purchase items from the supermarket. These coupons do not always apply to clothes though. They are more directed towards goods that you may need at home. It is okay to purchase from stores that sell mass produced clothing but before they go on sale, you would have to wait a bit before you can find clothes that you can actually wear.
At times, you may be too busy to think about clothes. You are always worrying about your kids guitar lessons that you have forgotten how fun it is to dress up and wear clothes that you actually like. No need to worry though because even if you have a limited budget, you still have the option to wear clothes that you will actually like. Why spend $50 on clothes that you will only wear a few times when you can purchase something that is equally beautiful from a thrift store for about $3?
Of course, it would help if you have a basic idea about the things that you are searching for. For example, if you are looking for a skirt, then it will be easy to look over the things that you do not need although it will still help if you can check out other racks in thrift stores because you may find some treasures you never thought you would have.
In order to save money during thrift shopping. here are other things that you have to remember:
Do not purchase something just because it is designer. It is common that you will find some designer goods while you are looking at the selections that are available from thrift stores. You may be tempted to purchase a few things because you are accesible with the brand but if you know that it will not fit, do not push it.
Stay away from clothing that you cannot mend anymore. Even if you like a unique piece so much, if it has a tear that cannot be fixed anymore then do not push it because this will only frustrate you when you are unable to fix it.
Remember that you if the clothing that you are considering to purchase already has a stain, you are better off not buying it anymore. It may not come off in the wash and it is not too hygienic to do this too.

With all of these things that you can find at the thrift store, you are pretty sure that you will find something worthwhile.
Our Thrift blog is about saving money, but we also believe that one should learn how to increase their income too (so to boost higher savings too).
In the current ‘millennial’ generation, many young people are being accused to being weak, poor in skills, poor in EQ, yet demanding high pay, and less work. Now, if you are a millennial, don’t get angry. There are reasons why the older generation sees us this way.
But hey, whatever impression they have you on, doesn’t mean that’s true!
Now, if you are new in workforce and looking to progress up the career ladder faster than your peers, then here’s an important skill that you have to learn.
And this skill is not a difficult skill. It’s an important skill, but not taught in schools, not even in university levels. If you possess this skill, you will be seen as more credible, more confident, and more reliable than your peers, hence giving you an unfair advantage over them.
Public Speaking & Presentation skills.
Now, you may say this skill is so easy. I can speak and present well in front of others. Heck, you have been doing so many of these presentation during university classes!
But hey, the thing is not about just speaking or presenting. It is knowing how to present, what to say, when to say it. How to say it well, how to speak in a way the evokes confidence. How do you speak to a group of people to motivate them when they are down. All these are important as a skill.
Executives are always looking for talents to train them up to lead teams when corporations grow. And one important skill they look for is public speaking skills.
When you can speak confidently in public, you are showing your boss that you are able to command attention whenever you speak. You are able to give clear instructions whenever it is needed. You show that you can lead.
Public speaking skill is a learnable skill. Some people claims it is an in-born talent because their parents are presenters, hence, it is ‘natural’ for their kids to speak well too. Nah, that is wrong. Presenting and public speaking is a learnable skill. Anyone can learn it.
To learn this skill, you can learn from a public speaking coach. or join a presentation skills training workshop. By putting in time and effort to learn, you are equipped with certain skills before your next presentation.
To fully master the art of speaking confidently, you simply have to speak more, speak well, speak often. Get more stage them in front of people. If there’s an opportunity for you to present in front of others (or even better, present on behalf on your boss), grab it! That is where you get the opportunity to shine, to lead.
As you progress up the corporate ladder, you will have to speak more, present more, from a small crowd to a larger and larger crowd. You will do less, but you will lead more. You will execute more, but you will decide more. A lot of decision making processes taking place at the same time.
But with good public speakings, you will be able to pass on instructions clearly to each and every team, and thus, gainly respect from your team when the project is well done.
That’s all for the tip! Go start grabbing opportunities to speak well and present well now!
