Glorious Coffee That's Good For You

My husband and I loves drinking coffee. In the morning, it is our bonding moment, to sip and eat bread and talk about our plans for the day. But recently, he was diagnosed to have Diabetes Type 2. So I abruptly cut his coffee from his system because he cannot take black coffee. He is really sad about it but I am trying to figure out how to incorporate coffee again in his system. For decades, coffee had received a bad reputation. Besides allegedly triggering high blood pressure, insomnia, and hyperacidity, the Filipino habit of adding lots of sugar and cream to one’s cup has been said to aggravate diabetes.

Holiday Gift Giving On A Budget


Ber months have already started and here in the Philippines, most households are already starting to decorate their houses with Christmas decorations. During this time of the year, our wallets get crucial due to the sale here and there. More often than not, we over budget because, SALE. I have been once a victim of this and way back and not falling for the same thing again. So here, I am sharing with you tips on how you can wisely spend your bonuses on gifts.

Make a list. Doing so narrows down whom you are supposed to give gifts only. It saves you time from thinking of what to give. 


Set a budget. Setting a certain budget for gifts keeps us from spending more than our target. We just need to make sure to stick with it or we are screwed. for the rest of the holidays. 

DIY. If you have the gift of DIYing, then this is also perfect for those who are on a budget. You can save a few bucks from doing DIY instead of paying someone to do it for you.


Plan Ahead of Time. Holidays are the busiest. You need to plan when to buy and when to give out. That way, you save your sanity from getting stuck in a horrendous traffic during the holiday season. 

Take Advantage of Sale. Who doesn't love SALE? Remember to be wise enough to stick to your budget so you don't end up with an empty wallet the following year.
