    Thumbs up More Fun in less expenditure.

    Hi folks ! I like to control my expenses as much as possible. I value my each and every coin of money and takes the perfect utility from a single paise, and why not this is our hard earned money.

    I pay my utility bills from on line to save my time to stand in serpentine queues. Nevertheless I am searching in Google search for discounts and rebates and came across with visabillpay who gives 5 % discount on all your utility bills when you make from your visa Debit card.

    My friend who was having the laptop is using full fledged, doing business of share trading and earning enormous profits. Another Friend of mine is using his old bike to save his money and when asked he said that I am quite satisfied with his old bike and why not, his purpose of travelling is getting solved and why to purchase expensive bike so as to show it off to others.

    To enjoy the life is to live in a simple way. Fame, glory, arrogantness kills your happiness from inside. People spend extravagant amount and used only in single day. My friend always used to go for picnics, outings, holidays and when asked he said that I don't used an entire amount in a short span of time rather I spread out so that I can take the full advantage out of it. He had planned to go to UAE but as he decided afterwards that why to spend such a substantial amount at one go, instead he travelled in different parts of india and made his travel and holidays more enjoyable and everlasting. With the same amount he had travelled 7 to 8 places in india rather than going at one place i.e UAE.

    Happiness comes from inside, but people think that to show off to others so as to know to others that they are also wealthy and of highly status by throwing huge wedding parties, ceremonies and in performing rituals.

    You do have a point there but it is also a truth that there are many places in the world that are worth watching and completely worth the money you spent. I too thought the same way but after I visited Tuscany once there has been a change in my beliefs. It would differ based on the likes and dislikes of the people but it's indeed a good thing to spend sometime in the natures lap where ever we could find peace, even though just would be sitting on the bank of a stream running close to our homes.

    The way every person thinks and acts is different and so I think that the likes and dislikes will also be the same manner. The nature i appear to be the best for some, while the sun is setting, on the contrary it would be the rising sun that would look enthralling, and there are many who would love both. So, it is the way you look at the beauty of the nature that makes the difference.

    Default No correlation between expenditure and fun

    Kfsahiwala, some of your points are right. But you can't generalise the same like you would be spending enormous amount of money in maintaining an old bike, so better go for a new bike which would be a worth for coming 5 years. Similarly where needed, you have to spend the money.
    Happiness is a personal asset, depends on the mind and attitude of the person concerned. Like for me , just a walk with my beloved and having golguppa and icecream gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction rather than going to Barista and spending 100 bucks for a single coffee. But my brother is just opposite. He wants to live a life king size. He enjoys surfing and shopping in malls and like socialising. Thats his way to look life.

    You can't correlate expenditure and fun.
