13th Month Pay

Where did your 13th month pay go? Mine is gone, in 24hours. But unlike in previous years when I used my 13th month pay to satisfy my short term wants, I am glad that over 60% of it this time was spent wisely.

 

– 33% went to my Sun Life Fund/Insurance
– 30% for my home loan amortization
– the remaining 37% was used to pay off my other debts

You could tell I got a bit inspired that I even put it in a chart. I may not have used the money for something that I could “enjoy” now like most people normally do, but I went extra practical this time. Clearing off my debts is first in the agenda, followed by my insurance and my loan amortization payment. My money basically left my hands in 24hours.

So no new gadgets this Holiday season, and no splurging of any kind. It feels boring but good at the same time. I guess I’m on my way to achieving financial maturity in a way, I really hope I am!

How about you, where did your 13th month pay go?
