First purchase

When it's new year or the 1st day of the month, my mom in the PI would always tell no spending and no going out. We are stocked in the house. She prepared and stocked food for us so we will not be asking anything from the store or somewhere else. It is the tradition for us. You may call it superstition but that's what my mom believed in. There was no argument in our part to contradict her wishes.

I just look back on that ways now I am living at a different country. There is no such thing like that here because everybody needs to work and be out of the house. Others need to purchase food and we did too. I don't think there is really relevance on why you will not spend on that day. I am not full blood superstitious.

Anyway, my first purchase for the year is some clothes. I used the gift card that I received from my birthday. It's nice to be able to get something new for the year. I am looking for another shopping this coming days. I will check with hubby on his promise that he will shop something for me.
