Remember I went online shopping at Amazon? It totally slipped my mind that there’d be taxes on top of the purchases. I kinda freaked when I realized it, but there was nothing to be done since they’ve already been ordered and paid for by then. Still, it really bugged me so I looked for the products’ SRP or lowest local price I could find online. Here’s the comparison of what I paid for and the amount if I’d bought the items here:

It was only after I’ve tallied everything that I could breathe easily. Even with the shipping and taxes, I still got each for a lower price. Yey! πŸ˜€ Granted, they’re taking their sweet time getting to me since I’d have to wait until next weekend to get them from my friend. Still, my patience saved me more than P3,000 and that’s no small amount of money. That alone is enough reason to celebrate, but I feel so much better about the fact that I was able to curb my impatience (as I always say, patience never was one of my strong points) and go for delayed gratification. I’m learning! πŸ˜€

  1. Super sulit indeed! How I wish I had friends who were in the States and coming over to visit as well para ipapadala ko nalang. So excited for your to finally receive your loots soon.:)

    1. Thanks sis! I am really excited (and impatient) as well. πŸ˜€ You could try cargo forwarders like Johnny Air Cargo, My-Shopping-Box, PObox or Forex World. We used the last since I think it’s the cheapest, and nagco-consolidate sila ng packages. Matagal nga lang dumating kasi sea freight.

  2. sis, you opted to buy your kindle from amazon din pala. ang laki nga ng savings mo, 3k. i can relate, a kuripot myself. lol!

    1. Yes sis, I had the opportunity because of my friend so I took it. And thankfully I made the right choice, finance-wise. So glad I am learning to be kuripot already! πŸ˜€
