I buy what I need, not what I want

Sometimes I think I’m not really a typical female. That’s because some of the tags that are usually applied to women usually do not apply to me. For example, I am not really very much into shopping. I mean, to a certain extent, I like looking at nice things, but I have no overwhelming need to spend a lot on clothes and accessories. I don’t carry around the latest model of the cellular phone. My laptop is about 4 years old and has undergone repair. I don’t buy gold just for the sake of having a nice accessory, but more because I consider such jewelry as investments that could appreciate as years go by and as something that I could eventually pass on to my children.

I’d like to do what my father did when we were old enough to understand about investing.  He bought us gold coins for our birthdays.  He used to buy from banks in Hong Kong because these are the reputable agencies.  I think they were not available here in the Philippines.  I do not know if there are now banks which have these.  But nowadays, there are more convenient means of making such investments.  I’ve seen sites like the US Gold Bureau which may be found online and could serve practically anyone around the world.

Well, I do need to shop now and then but I think I do it more out of need rather than want.  I just cater to my want when I need it.
