I came home yesterday from a short work trip. Got a mail from one of the banks advertising their holiday packages. I scanned thru it for a few seconds before it landed in my trash bin. Seriously? Holiday? Sometimes i wish I can be impulsive, live life to the ‘fullest’ and spend my last money on an exotic holiday and scrimp for food later. But i just can’t… being a worry wart that i am. With the current economy, I feel like I need to be even more careful. I see people who are used to make tons of money scared of losing their paychecks. It’s time to save really. Businesses are slowing down and contracts are being terminated. The least we can do is to have a cushion so we don’t hurt as much if and when our bottoms go down.
