Rakyat Didahulukan!

This is not a post related to politics.
I just want to share some info with your guys.
As we know that petrol, sugar and Gas price increased. 

Hence, we need to figure out how to balance up our living cost.

1. Same brand, but different price at different shop?
Normally, I will buy bread from the mini supermarket like Chinese medicine shop.
The standard bread price is Rm2.30 right?
You can buy the same brand bread with Rm2.00 only.
It is same for milk powder, you can save more than few ringgit if you buy it from local market.
But, it is depend on the shop as well.

2. Select a good petrol brand?
With the same price of petrol, you better choice a better quality petrol for your car.
Hence, you can drive more distance and save more money.
You can try to pump different petrol and check how long the distance you can travel.
I have do an analysis and I found that Papaya petrol consume more than others.

3. Take less sugar.
It is a good news! 
Don't take outside drink. Just take a drink bottle with you all the times.
It indirectly reduce the possibility we attacked by diabetes!

4. Sharing car.
We not need to pay more toll to evil toll company.
We not need spend more petrol.
Less air pollution in our country.
And, we can reduce traffic jam as well.

5. Less shopping.
Buy whatever we need.
If not really necessary, then better don't buy.

6. Stay at home.

p/s: Please share with us if you have better idea how to save more money.

we need a thrifty government not a sucker who plan various way to suck the Rakyat money. I think our income tax will increase soon, there will be sales tax coming up.

So how much can we save? We already cut here and there also not able to save much. I really have no idea how to save. Sigh~

I agree with the last one. No. come and tell my wife lah! Buy! Buy! Buy! And very often, things that are not necessary or things we can do without. Keep telling her change! People grumble and complain...they say they want change...and yet they are the last ones to change!

really?? the same brand of bread selling cheaper in local markets?? i thot it's fixed price everywhere..

[SK] said...

yes, very true.. we have to try different kind of petrol and see which one is the best for our car.. not necessarily the most expensive is the best..

Great tips! Saving is always a good habit =)

[SK] said...

i guess one of the reason sugar price is increased is because we have been consuming too much sugar which is not healthy.. so i agree with you, take less sugar!! :)

[SK] said...

i always encourage people to car pool, this is more environmental friendly, and car pooling make sure nobody is lost mah, haha!! but also sometimes difficult to match also lah..

[SK] said...

errr, i think we should still go shopping.. spend the money so as to boost the market mah.. if everyone also saving money, then tehre's no cash flowing in the market already..

[SK] said...

Haha got Papaya petrol thot Bananaz petrol can give more mileage, heard from a Hongkie. Why is it Papaya petrol did not give you the mileage thot suppose to have the same RON whatsoever they termed them? Seldom use Papaya petrol as my place got two Sea petrol stations.

Have to eat to live that you cant for other not necessary item dont buy. Bananaz always have this policy 'buy the things that you need not you like'..

Those days when heard of the inflation in Mexico about a loaf of bread cost US10 cannot comprehend how to eat at this price. Now it is happening in Bolehland those days RM1.50 for wholemeal now a whooping RM3.00 and price is 'loafingly' increasing fast and furious..

Budget cut should start from the top. Not from the bottom.
