It seems that price increases have jumpstarted the New Year. When I went to the grocery store, prices of prime commodities and toiletries have gone up. Even if it is just a few cents for some and up to some pesos for others, still there are price adjustments and if you total your purchase, they have really affected my budget.
Thank God that I don’t have other bills to pay like car insurance or health insurances. At least I only have our daily expenses and my children’s school expense to think of. Well, yeah, there is the house and electricity, but these are regular expenses that we are sure to pay every month.
Times are really hard. But thankfully, income is steady, at least on my part. We had a tough year as a family last year, but I keeping my head up and looking up for a brighter 2011.
May the Lord renew my tired body, mind and spirit and enable to go raring for this year.
