Kahit ako, nakaka ubos ng 3 packs! Masarap kasing higupin kasi si Marian Rivera ang endorser." What the f?! I have to role my eyes and searched my memory bank who the heck Marian Rivera is. LOL!

I have different budget for my Personal grocery and for Stark and Pepper. I'll talk about my detailed budget one of these days.



  1. Nakakabilib naman po ang dami nyo pong nabili but still inline with your budget! :)

    1. Yah, way below my budget pa nga!! hehe. Hirap kaya but I got used to it. Glad my taste buds aren't picky

  2. Hi Maria. You keep on inspiring me to do good on household finance. I'm currently devising a meal plan which would let me spend P1,000 on food per week. We are four in the household. Sana kayanin.

    1. Nakaya ko din ang 1,000 budget per week, apat kami, noon. Dapat ikaw mag prepare ng food at hindi yung helper kasi if iba kasi mag pre-prepare, they just put whatever ingredients, without minding the costs ( pwera lang sa mga lumalaban talaga na mga helper ha?) If kita kasi nag pre-prepare ng food, talagang todo tipid. One tomato ko nga could last me a week kasi nililiitan ko talaga ng hiwa. hehehe. Weird I know but that is just the way I cook my food. hehehe

  3. We have same electricity problem in Karachi ;(


I'd love to hear from you. I read and appreciate all comments. :)
