Spend it like you mean it

Published by theuglywriter on

Disclaimer: This does not in any way have a moral lesson. This is for the sheer enjoyment of sharing.

 

Bills. Work. Bills. Work.

This used to be me almost a decade ago. It made me who I am today.

But who exactly am I now?

Before I dwell on this thought-provoking crap called self-reflection, allow me to go a decade deeper. Fifteen years ago, I was just like you. Broke. Clueless. Uncoordinated. This was me for the better part of my college years. But unlike you, I did not go to parties not because I’m a cheapskate. I did not go to any out-of-town activities because the commute sucks the life out of me. No. I did none of those because time did not permit me. I had to work my ass off just to get by. No, we are not dirt poor (although we weren’t as blessed back then as we are now, mind you). I just did not have the habit of asking for money other than for the usual tuition fee and travel allowance.

After college, my first job was as a Customer Service Rep for a Contact Center in Makati. It did not do any good on my finances nor did six more odd jobs and companies after it. But it was okay as I did not want much in life. Eventually, I was able to pick footing and landed some more jobs that paid well. But come to think of it, the more I worked hard for, the harder the cravings for material things came. My first personal purchase was my dependable Nokia n97mini and a second hand iPod Classic (that 80GB model). And it was such a delight to have experienced buying something from my hard work. I bet you would too. Right? So I had my old Nokia last for more than five years and it even survived the emergence of the first iPhone, which my dad got for himself from his business account from Globe. The Nokia lasted longer than the first iPhone. But this one is set for a whole different story.

That was the last time I felt really proud and contented with what I bought.

Years went by and my phones started coming and going. My first ever Android was an HTC Rezound (first ever to have a dual camera) back in 2011. It only lasted for three years, and I was craving for something new. A lot more androids came and went by. Then I moved on to cameras. Same scenario. I started obsessing with having the best and the latest. I feel like everything I wasn’t enough, despite spending lots of times checking out reviews and feedbacks. I was addicted to gadgets. From smartphones to cameras,  phone accessories to personal computers and gaming consoles. I was in an exciting yet dangerous freefall. I only realized it when I maxed out my credit card.

That was me being stupid.

But don’t have any funny idea that I learned my lesson. I still buy stuff. Half of them I still don’t really need.

The only difference now is probably the fact that I have more control over my impulse (riiiigggght). I also earn a lot more to satiate my thirst for material things. But f*ck, I do love to shop. Spend it like you mean it, b*tch!

How about you? List down five most expensive things you bought that goes beyond logic. Why did you buy them? Do you regret it now? Also, what is that one object you didn’t buy/wasn’t able to buy (for any reason) but you feel that it would’ve sparked joy into your life if you did?

I never had a material self since I was a kid and until now. I grew up in a middle class family and my parents never let us bought expensive things that we don’t really need. My parents never spoiled us with things since we were kids, but it doesn’t mean that they didn’t give us anything. If we did good at school back in our elementary days, my parents would buy us toys and we were so happy, but for the sake of the questions. The most expensive thing, for me, that I had in my entire life is… Read more »

Act181 There are some instances that I tend to buy things beyond my very wise reasoning and money control. This is due because it may look nice for me on that time or I am with someone who originally planned to buy those things and then I got to join the said bandwagon. So upon reading this article I listed down my top five purchases that I regret buying in the end because I didn’t really got the chance to use this in a very productive manner and literally end up in the trash bin after quiet some time. 1.… Read more »

There are times that “wants” win over “needs” however it is our decision if we will go for it or not. But as today’s generation, it’s most of the time about our “wants” for any reason maybe it is for ourself or for other people like we want them to give gifts or anything. Here are the 5 stuffs/things I bought: • Drakkar Noir (a signature perfume for my father serves as my Christmas gift) • Elizabeth Arden (a signature perfume for my mother as a Christmas gift) • Damian Lillard 4 shoes • Smartphone • Signature tops Those are… Read more »

At first I was very happy when I already have those things but as soon as time passed by I realized that in this time i should not bought those things because I don’t have a work for me to gain money.

(ACT184) It happened last year. My parents made me choose between cash or having a debut party. I chose cash. To be honest, that was the first time I kept so much money inside my wallet and I had so many things in mind which I really wanted to buy. I still remember when I went to the mall and found myself purchasing the following: 1) A pair of sneakers worth P3,500 2) Branded clothes for about P2,400 3) 2 lipsticks worth P599 each 4) Skincare products – P1,000 5) A sling bag – P800.

Dela Rosa, Ashley Nhicollete G. ACT184 While reading the article I can’t stop laughing at myself. Why? Because I and the author is a IMPULSIVE BUYER. I can see myself in the future like the author. Back to the question, I think the most expensive things/objects that I bought are SHOES, CLOTHES, MAKE-UP, BAG, and CALLIGRAPHY PEN. I bought it because I always attracted with a aesthetic packaging and I think it will be useful in the near future. By buying the things that I loved I was so happy to saw what I’m saving for. I always deprived myself… Read more »

It was a sunny day. I closed my eyes and reminisced. I have never expected to spend some money on the things I was passionate about. My mother always questioned me where did I get those money to afford expensive stuff. I always shrugged, even my little soul did not know the answer. I guess I was good at saving. For we were not really on the right place in the society. My grandmother would even scold me for spending on the things I did not really need. She said I should just rather spend it on household items than… Read more »

Here are the top 5 things I personally bought or have that I believe goes beyond logic for I know that it will make me happy and at some point complete: 1. My cellphone which cost 7000 2.

For me I don’t buy things that easy that is why I don’t buy things that I really don’t need for before I buy I said to myself I can buy this things, but why should I buy this things.

Makeup for my sister. 5. Perfume for my dad. As you can see, those things that I bougjt are not for myself but rather for other people. Their happiness is my happiness that is why if someone asked me whether I regret it or not, I would probably them that I don’t regret anything.

I used to save money rather to spend it just to prove to everyone that I can buy it. But fortunately, people who surrounds really love me. Just like my parents, friends, relatives and even neighbors. They are the one who give me such things that I don’t ask for. A material thing specifically. But also I buy things maybe not too expensive just like others are doing.… Read more »

Personally, I am not really a materialistic person. I seldom buy things for myself and I am not an impulsive buyer because, first, I don’t have so much money to buy all my “wants”, and second, I am not really particular to brands and such, except to the products that I am applying to my skin. But if there are things that I spend the most, it is on my hygiene needs. I don’t treat it as my “want”, instead I view it as my “need”. 1. Rubber Shoes- 4500 2. Hygiene needs- 2000/monthly 3. Wrist watch- 1500 . Bags-… Read more »

Last December 2018, as an SM Scholar, we were given a chance to work at SM Department Srore for Christmas job. Of course, I grabbed the opportunity. As a college student, I have expenses and wants that sometimes I cannot afford to buy, and asking my parents for some money to buy those things is not my thing. So, that gave me a motivation to grab that Christmas job. After weeks and I got my salary, I feel so much happiness and excitement to spend it and buy the things I cannot afford to buy before. And since it’s Christmas… Read more »

I really do not spend my money on things like clothes, gadgets, and etc. Most of the time, I spend money on food. I am not into shopping. I kinda have doubts when it comes to buying or spending, but when it comes to food… no doubts. I will spend my money on food once I get hungry or crave something. One of the most expensive things I bought is cellphone through my parents’ money.

Back when I was at grade 9 or maybe 8 I bought 9 beyblades which costs 500 each and 6 Scan2Go toys which also costs 500 each. I was childish during those days that’s why I bought those things. I don’t regret buying those because it made me feel very happy when I play those things. There was a basketball shoes I really wanted to buy. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to have that shoes because a I hesitated on buying it. First, I don’t play basketball so it will be useless because it will not be used for its main… Read more »

So,I am not really a materialistic person since I was a child. Before when I want something that my mother can’t afford, I always told her that I understand and I’ll just wait until we can afford to buy that ‘thing’ for me. Also I am also a bit of “kuripot” because I don’t really want to buy an… Read more »

I’m a kind of person that easily to attract in many thing. Sometimes I bought things that is nonsense. Some people say was so spoiled because I was an only child. Maybe because when I grew up my mom is not by my side to guide me in many things specially on buying things. She was so busy working and it’s far away form me. That’s the reason why she don’t know what I want and I don’t want. So I was the one deciding for self and buying things that I need to buy. The first expensive thing I… Read more »

That you have to think further before buying a certain product. You may seem that I’m a cheapskate, but I’m proud that in my age, I get to have my own savings and my wants is made up from my own savings or I worked for it for a long time.

Trend. A word that make most of the people drool. They tend to buy everything at all costs. Though we all know it’s normal to spend on the things you want to buy if you really deserve it.
