Gymboree deal!

On both our recent Tagaytay trips, my kids went crazy over the playground, especially the wooden swing sets and the slides. I'm now thinking if this Ensogo deal (which is already expiring in a few hours' time) which offers an Annual Membership, inclusive of 10 Play Coupons and 4 Age‐Appropriate Core Classes at Gymboree for only 2500 pesos (instead of 6800 pesos, a whopping 56% off!)

I didn't do this for my older kid, because I found it too expensive.  I enrolled him in a playschool instead.  But since this deal is really cheap, maybe it would be good for my youngest.

Relaxing deals

"Rakets"

We just finished submitting our 2010 income and 2307 to our accountant for proper income tax filing. My husband and I have irregular income so we pretty much have some difficulty knowing how much we earn on a monthly basis, until we actually list everything down. What appalls is that we actually don't have much money left over after paying for expenses!

That's why we're always on the lookout for "rakets" for a little something extra. While the husband and I think we are not good with sales jobs, we actually were able to sell a little something here and there, nothing big really, and very occasionally, but it kinda boosted our belief that there's money to be made if we really look hard enough for opportunities.

What I think I'm good at is writing.  And I try to get some extra income from it.  After all, with today's rising costs and prices, any extra income would only be helpful.

What "raket" do you have and what would you suggest?

In emergencies

I really hate being in debt, because to my mind that means that I have negative balance of money. But sometimes we couldn't help it, because there may be times that urgent situations call for urgent solutions.

This is a time when I can say that credit cards are definitely an asset! Imagine having to seek medical attention without any cash on hand? While there is supposed to be law against hospitals collecting a deposit on emergency cases, it is a fact that you do have to pay for your bill sooner or later. What I do then is pay off the bill with my credit card.

Then, after the storm is over, I have until the payment due date to determine if I have enough funds to pay for the credit card, hopefully from our emergency funds. If I do, I earmark that money to pay the credit card around the time the due date rolls around. But if not, I may try to look for personal loans who have an interest rate that's lower than the interest rate offered by credit cards (since credit card in the Philippines charge a whopping 3 percent EVERY MONTH!).  My mother gives me no-interest loans without a due date (except when she needs the money) and that is the best type of loan because it's not as pressuring.  However, I do make sure that I pay it off as soon as possible.
