What happened to $384 in 2015?

Friday, April 19, 2024

Almost 9 years ago, I blogged about how I saved $384 on solar powered lights for my planter.

Then, quite unexpectedly, someone asked me on YouTube how were those lights doing?

Well, they are still working!

I took a photo of them last night and here it is:

I used to blog about saving money very frequently back in those days.

These days, I am taking it easy.

I am less tight fisted with money now.

However, this does not mean that I am frivolous with money.

I would still wonder if something is worth buying, if it is value for money?

Hard to unlearn some things.

However, if it isn't an amount that would break the piggy bank, like a few dollars, I would just close an eye.

Anyway, if you are new to my blog, this was the blog post back in 2015:
Saving $384 on solar powered lights is $384 earned!

I remember reading an article about Jim Rogers persuading his wife not to buy a new sofa in his younger days and to invest the money instead.

They later bought a new sofa with money made from the money they didn't spend on a new sofa earlier.


If AK can do it, so can you!
