For others to save; they would prefer to use a public vehicles rather than using their own car, some would prefer to cook their own meals at home before going to the office, others would just stay home rather than going to the malls to shop and watch the latest movies.
Though, my office is not that far from our house but the traffic in Manila is unstoppable. Riding a jeepney is my first priority because it's the most cheapest. Everyday, I take three (3) rides and it took me almost an hour travel from our house to the office (vice versa) to arrive.
One time, I had a chance to pass-by at the store that sells second hand bicycle somewhere in Quirino Avenue in Baclaran. I buy one though I’m reluctant at first because it looks like a 1960’s model. But believe me, the unit is high quality, a Japan made bike, and I bought it at about almost 2k only.
I’ve been biking for over two years now and the result is amazing because I can take short cuts to my destination. Riding a bike is addictive, very tiring at first but as you‘re used to it, it keeps you more. Riding my bike saves a lot of time especially going to the office ( not worried if I stink because the office has its own shower and a locker room where I can keep my belongings), It gives me excellent health, and it saves me a little amount of money compared before.
As long as I am happy and fulfilled I never mind what other people might say.
You, how do you save your time and money?
