Importance of an awesome girlfriend/wife
Although I have set myself a target of $10/day for my expenses, I will usually try to spend below that amount. I will always have a mini competition with myself, trying to beat my previous day spending on every new day. My expenses so far for the month of June is $22.90, which is only about $5.70/day. This is quite a good start given that my target is $10/day. I have to admit that because of my goal, I have been unfair to my girlfriend by eating cheap, refusing to watch movies on weekends, not buying any presents or spending lavishly on special occasions. This might be unhealthy but I believe one day she will be able to enjoy the fruits of my labor. In the beginning of our relationship, I pampered her with gifts and branded bags, treated her fine dining and even surprised her with flowers once in a while. Despite such a sharp contrast in my treatment, she did not complain even a bit. I have to say I must be blessed.
