Thread: This time it's serious....

  1. #1

    Default This time it's serious....

    Today one of my friends told me that her salary was cut .... this is the third company I know so far, and these are not even in the banking, service or manufacturing business.

    I think this time it's really serious

    So guys, please control your BBB virus for a while ........ think thrice before we commit.

    Seem quite common (among the circle of my friends). I think it affects quite a number of sectors.

    if you hold back on spending, the economy will not move...and eventually it will affect you also;

    if you buy too much, you dun have money...

    for those who can afford and have the means, of course one should spend, spend, spend ..... coz now is the time to get real value for money in most purchases.
    But I am most concerned with people with low salary or those with big commitments .... just be careful .... buy only when there is a need.

    I just came back from the IT show, ya, it's crowded ... but not many people are buying, as far as people carrying purchases are concerned.... anyway, the organizer is going to announce record attendence and record sales on Monday

    The rule here is to spend within your means. Overspending even in good economic times will also make you bankrupt. Best is to stay away from installments if you can't afford to pay at one go.
