Money is only a tool. It will take you wherever you wish, but it will not replace you as the driver.
i always find it devastating and guilty to see my wallet empty - only to be filled with the blue bills and rarely used membership cards. then i'll be like, "seriously. where did the moolah go???".
then a little voice in my head whispered that if i felt guilty, maybe i was doing something wrong.
well i'm not the type that keeps track of self expenditures but nor am i ignorant of my spending behaviors. i remember that in primary school, we were given a book where you would jot down your spendings, in accountance of your 'before' and 'after' money.
aah scrap that, i thought. by the end of the day i had just simply wrote down what i could think of in it, not exactly what i had spend. but since my teacher was going to mark and grade it.......
so it happened the other night. i was having a date night with anis (duhh, who else?). had about rm60 with me in the beginning. watched movie, shopped some groceries, had dinner. and that was it. i still could not believe that i had spend so much till rm7 was all i had been left with.
but now that i had listed my expenditures down, it reeeally makes some sense. rm60 isn't that much eh? gosh. i was fooled by my own thoughts of i-had-totally-NOT-spend-THAT-much.
