Yes, I Love Myself Financially

Even I am a stay at home mom for almost nine years, I have never been a burden to my husband financially. I have tried to sell beauty products, RTW (we had a stall in Taytay market), general merchandise (we had a sari-sari store), etc. Until two years after I resigned from my job, we put up a little business that exists until now. We purchase products (shoes, bags, apparels) and we have dealers selling them. Hubby and I are partners; he does the purchasing, I do the paper works and I am also the one assigned on the collection of payments. Our income here is what we use in paying our bills; electricity, water, internet and house monthly amortizations. But when I started to earn from blogging last year, I earned extra that I can call my own money. The effort is purely mine, without any help from my husband even on technical aspects. And I am glad that hubby is very supportive of me. He even bought me new pc with lcd monitor. We use my earnings in paying a loan and buying some of our wants.

I hate bills and credit cards. I don’t have any credit card while my husband has three which we were using before for purchasing appliances but we paid all the credits last May and so is RJ’s whole year tuition fee.  And though we are not rich, our house is open to our family members, neighbors and friends in need be it financial or not. We are not asking for anything in return but they are so grateful so we have supply of imported bath soaps, free fresh vegetables, endless supply of chocolates, etc. (received a pouch of 400g. powdered juice and 3kg. of sweet corn while making this post, ehehe).

I can say that I love myself financially because I am very good in budget and finance. Sounds like bragging, lol! I can stretch our money even how little it is. I am also resourceful because I never ran out of earning opportunities and ideas.
