    I clean up my bedroom today and I found that I have total 9 mobile phone, some of them is new, never use them before after buy.
    This seems is one the bad habit, I now gotta think how to clear up all those goods, checking my Facebook to find the friend's birthday date...lol
    And, write a big reminder to avoid this happen again

    Do you have any bad habit?

    We are all guilty of buying things we shouldn't or cant afford.
    Best way is to have your money in two separate bank accounts. One in checkings and one in savings. Keep a smaller amount in checkings and if you need more money, you'll have to transfer it from savings. Chances are you will probably think twice before doing so.

    I assume 'checkings' is a current account? If so, this is good advice most definitely.

    I have a habit of buying lots of Blu Rays.

    Is working in a computer for 8 hours and unlimited use of it while at home is a bad habit? LOL. We must be really into internet eh? Well, one of my bad habit to consider is buying things without thinking if i really need it or not.

    Exactly, I also used to do that. No matter how much are the expenses, I have set a fixed amount of my earning that goes straight in to the savings.

    Maybe you can sell them off on your friends to get the money you spent on them.

    Can't really think of anything really bad at the moment unless you count picking the wrong women to date! But I am slowly learning on that one.

    Why not try it first? Then if no one buys, sell them off via eBay.

    the main reason is I lazy to go post office....lol
    Better just give away to my friends

    It is an experience gain when you choose the wrong after you noticed, then only you can find the best in future.
    If you never choose the wrong, how you know the current choice is the right?
    If you choose the right at first time, you lose the chance to try the wrong....lol




    Just kidding :p

    Well, you won't get lazy if you will receive money, right?
    And if you want to give it away, do as you wish. :)

    Why not, those phone is not expensive. And it actually not worth it if the buyer purchase it due to high shipping fee.
    Just feel guilty if just leave them without using
