“Beware of little expenses; a small leak will sink a great ship,” according to Mr. Benjamin Franklin. We are always putting a small emphasis on the importance of money, most especially on saving it for our own future. Many of the working people are weak in these kinds of saving challenges because their main argument is that they can work again for the lost money.
However, this 50-peso money saving challenge is currently viral on social media because of extreme discipline established by the uploader herself. She mentioned that the common problems of people are the lack of discipline and commitment in doing it. According to her, people are easily blinded of urgent and unplanned tours, gimmicks, and other activities that they want. They didn’t focus themselves on their own needs.
Here is how Ms. Abella did the said 50-peso money saving challenge:
“TAKE TIME TO READ BAKA MAKATULONG SA SAVINGS..
This is to inspire and not to brag.
50 PESOS CHALLENGE HERE’S HOW;
yehey!!!! daming 50’s diba? dagdag savings. malayo mararating mo kapag nag decide ka disiplinahin sarili mo lalo na sa savings. kasi karamihan satin nag alkansya para makapag save pero kapag gimikan o galaan game na game at dudukot o susundutin or worst babasagin ang kanilang alkansya matuloy lang ang mga wants nila pero nasa tao naman talaga ang disiplina kung pano sila makakapag save. hindi natin dapat unahin ang mga wants natin, dahil ang WANTS makakapaghintay pero ang NEEDS hindi. Aminado ako before magastos akong tao pero hindi naman kasi tayo pa bata, pa tanda po tayo kaya sana isipin natin lahat ng pag gagastusan natin dahil hindi natin alam may mga respinsibilidad tayo sa buhay na dapat pag laanan ng savings. Need natin mag save habang bata pa tayo para pag dumating ang near future hindi tayo sobrang mamomoblema when it comes sa money kasi alam mong nakapag save ka.
5mos ko po na save tong 846 pcs ng 50’s ganito ang aking ginawa, LAHAT NG 50 pesos na mahahawakan ko at invisible MUNA sakin it means di ko siya gagastusin for example nag bayad ka ng buong 500 pesos then ang sinukli sayo 4 na 50’s , yung 4pcs na 50’s dapat invisible sakin hindi ko siya pwedeng gastusin. kailangan yung remaining na sinukli na hindi 50’s yung lang gagastusin at pagkakasyahin ko. sobrang disiplina ginawa ko dito kasi naniniwala ako na kapag GUSTO MADAMING PARAAN, KAPAG AYAW MADAMING DAHILAN. sana po nakatulong ako sainyo at namotivate ko kayo ng konti 😊 . Thankyou sa mga nagbasa. Godbless.”
The most common problem of Filipinos most, especially those of the middle class is their inability to discipline themselves in their expenses. They are not aware that even 50-peso bills when saved, can be a great amount in just five months or less than a year. What more if it is saved for 1-3 years?
