$120 Saves our Expenses

Election are now over but some are still mourning, fighting and grieving for their political bets did not make it. But I dont belong with them coz whoever wins I am still liable for my daily life right?:)
But what makes me happy this election period was the money me and my partner received. I know some of you received some gifts too, and who we are not accept those gifts, we never ask anything from them but to serve well the country or LGUs but they did extra effort, so just accept what they are giving.
To summed up how much we received from the politicians here, well we have received a total of ₱6k or $120. Mostly its from my partner, as I am a new register voter here, I only got ₱1K($20) and my partner received ₱5k($100). Not bad right, in just an instant we have that money on our hand, and they say easy money is easy to spent, but for me no, I make sure that we will used this to something usedful. So now where did we used the money we receieved?
I will share the details with you here..just keep on reading..
Its been 3months that we were not able to pay our electric bills due to the shortage with our budget, as I told you before I am not fully sharing our expenses here coz my partner is not good in holding money(magastos sobra). So I let him shoulder the electric bills for him to value his had earned money, but no changes so I am not helping him with regards to it, I just share with our groceries and sometimes me and Adrielle treat ourselves outside. Now let go back to our electric bill, when he received the first ₱2k($40) he gave it immediately to me and allot it with our electric bill.
The last time I did grocery was April and I only buy those important items like foods of Adrielle, drinks and some basic needs, but I did not buy any extra items for our stocks as we have limited budget also even I added my own money still it was not enough to buy for stocks. But since we have received money from the politicians so we allot extra for our grocery and buy extra for our basic needs, milk and vitamincs and we also treat Adrielle in a fast food chain(Jollibee)
Now we have full and extra stocks of our basics needs and I am happy seeing that coz I dont want buying every item from the sari sari store as I was nanghihinayang for every 1-3pesos na patong sa bawat items. Then I also buy the frying pan that I want to buy last time, our frying pan is only one and sometimes even I want to fry other foods but it was used so I became lazy not to cook what I want. Now I am that I was able to buy extra frying pan and I can call it souvenir from the politicians🤣.
Last May 11 after the election my partner buy different kinds of viands(bangus, galunggong, pork) to put on our ref and I thought he will prepared it for the barangay fiesta the following day. And he even said it costs ₱1k. So I can't do nothing since he was really the one who did the buying of our viands and he also said he was just preparing coz what if somebody arrived and makifiesta, atleast he have something to prepared. But thank God that during the fiesta no one arrives so the viand he bought was our stocks(bad ko ano!) But this is practical mindsetting kesa nman nganga after.
That was the breakdowm of the money we recieved last time, and I can say that it was really a great help for us. And even the money was not from our hard earned money, we still used it for for our priorities and needs. We must be practical in our lives now, that even the money is not from our hard earned money we must spend it wisely.
