Make Compound Interest Your New BFF

We fashionistas love to shop, shop and SHOP!  Obviously, we need money for that.  If we don't have available cash we simply swipe our credit cards.  This is where the problem begins.  This is where "compound interest" becomes our  #1 nemesis.  Like most people I know, If you only pay the minimum charge each month, you'll have to pay 3.25% - 3.5% interest on the outstanding balance.  That goes on and on each month until you realize that you're paying double of the actual value of your purchase.  It's scary!  "Compound Interest" is definitely your worst nightmare!

Or maybe not...

Journey to Becoming a Money Savvy Fashionista

Hi. My name is Tet, and I’m on my journey to becoming a “money savvy fashionista.”

I’ve been a designer for 5 years in some of the biggest manufacturing/retail companies here in the Philippines. Although my compensation seems more than enough for a single woman, I found it strange that I still don’t have my own house and that I don’t have savings in the bank.  Comparing myself with my siblings, they seem to be doing OK with less compensation to go by – and, with a family to feed.  And so I realized that... it’s not how much money you have but what you do with it that would make you financially successful.

A year ago, I met my now boyfriend and he lent me this book by Napoleon Hill - “Think and Grow Rich.”  After reading the book, I realized a lot of things about myself and my life, especially on what direction I want to go.  He also taught me how to manage my money by adapting John Calub’s Money Magnet method.  And though I’m still far from being RICH, I’m glad that I’ve taken the first step  - DECIDE where I want my life to go.

I’ve been reading a lot of fashion blogs but most of them can only urge you to spend more!  And so this blog aims to aid you to be financially wise as to how you spend your hard-earned money while still looking great! So, I hope that you’ll find time to visit this blog regularly as I share the knowledge that I’m acquiring from different financial mentors. This is also a great place to look for the best bargain fashion finds, latest fashion trends and styling tips to make you look fashionably chic!
