Smart Ways To Manage Your 13th Month Pay

One of the most exciting part of the Holiday Season for the employed is the 13th month pay and for the very few lucky ones, it reaches 14th, 15th and even 16th month pay! Not to mention the Christmas bonuses and other incentive that comes along the merriest year end month that is just lurking around the corner.

As Filipinos, celebrating Christmas is deeply ingrained in our culture. It shows in our going the extra mile to help build the atmosphere of festivity. From decorating our houses, Christmas gift list chronicles for the godchildren a.k.a. ina-anaks, the blasting of Jose Mari Chan medleys, the Noche Buena planning, to even completing the Misa de Gallo Mass. A whole lot and more comes with the traditional Filipino Christmas celebration.

Any celebration, no matter how joyous of an occasion, also cost a lot money. Although the 13th month pay can be used to fund our Christmas experiences, we also strongly suggest a few excellent tips to smartly handle and manage your 13th month pay and even to grow it! Read on…

1.) SET ASIDE CASH FOR EMERGENCY FUND

If you have not started one yet, perhaps now is the best time to start or if you have, now is the best time to even grow it more. Emergency funds help you prepare for unforeseen events and is a sure way to help you come up with a budget in the event of unfortunate emergencies or even job loss.

2) PAY OFF YOUR DEBTS

If you don’t have debts, Congratulations! You are one of the very lucky few who is a rockstart in money management and a hashtag blessed individual who never had to encounter any emergency to throw finances off balance. But for most, this seems hard to avoid especially in emergency cases. Hence, the importance of building your emergency fund as stated in rule number 1. Debts cost a lot in interest rates. whatever kind of debt you have, speed up the payment and make use of the small windfall to pay it off.

3) INVEST YOUR MONEY

It is common misconception that we need a whole lot of money to be able to make investments. Saving your extra money in the bank is no longer a smart choice these days because inflation rises so much faster than the interest rate and over time, you will never get to enjoy or build up any asset for long term goals such as retirement. You can talk to your trusted bank or financial consultant to know more about your options.

4) START A SMALL BUSINESS

The rising cost of living has made it a challenge for the entire household to depend on salary alone. Having a second source of income can make a difference in your finances. The holiday season is a perfect opportunity for you to start a small business. The options are endless from party food, handcrafted cards and ornaments, toys, novelty items, cosmetics, gift baskets, clothes, and a whole lot more. The possibilities to earn extra money should also be combined with efforts and perseverance on your end.

These simple tips can spell a big difference in liberating your finances. Smartly managing and handling your 13th month pay or any extra cash could be your key to financial freedom.

Ex-Meal Time Grump

 

 

You certainly don’t want that kind of face during meal time and neither do we. So today, we share some of our tips to erase that grumpy look from little ones face during meal time and to make the day more manageable with a happy, smiling, well-fed baby in your arms.

 

TIP NUMBER ONE: Give it an extra dollop of flavor.

In case you missed our last post, Ten Pesos Baby Food Menu, you can see that is indeed possible to do away with expensive ready-to-eat, store bought food and stick to easy to find, healthier (think all natural, no preservatives) yet super economical food choices.

Since we already have our basic idea on how to initially prepare the food, one simple step of mixing a little bit more breastmilk or formula to suit baby’s taste won’t hurt. If you are wondering how much of a little bitwe are talking about, trust me, you would know from little ones face.

 

TIP NUMBER TWO: Establish a little bit of fun routine for little one’s meal time.

Do you notice how little one’s face light up to a certain song or nursery rhyme? Try playing that during meal time and it will instantly lift little one’s mood. Once this is established, he will develop an association with both fun and meal time and you will get him to settle to his happy self during the most important part of the day.

 

TIP NUMBER THREE: Bring fun items to your meals.

No, we are certainly not talking about toys. Toys are a big no-no companions during mealtimes and will only add to distracting little one from the food that he needs to eat. Remember, our little ones needs all the nourishment at this crucial point in development. We suggest colorful meal chair or utensils and even a simple fun bib, which is our go to fun item for meal times. It does not distract the baby but rather adds excitement to the meal time as he can pretend to eat with a fun bib friend (think animal designed bibs) and our most favorite, it certainly makes clean up time a whole lot easier.

 

With the three tips, it is easy to turn grumpy meal time baby to….”MEAL TIME IS MY FAVORITE!” Baby.

 

Do you have other meal tips to share? We look forward to hear about it.
