This is my fresh grad salary budget and I can only save RM40 a month

Image Source:

My salary nett is RM2,650.

1 RM500 – Give my mummy 

2. RM500 – Saving for kahwin

I don’t want to be forever alone.

forever alone

3. RM450 – Single room rental with utilities 

Cheapest room I can get.

single room

4. RM350 – Food and groceries 



5. RM500 – For hobby (entertainment)

I cannot imagine my life reduce to work, go home sleep, work, and repeat.

6. RM150 – Settle PTPTN monthly basis 

No choice.


7. RM160 – Rokok (trying to cut down)

I know people say if quit smoking can buy Ferrari…but cigarette is really a need at the moment for the stress I’m having with this budget.

RM2,650 – RM2,610 = RM40 (Should I keep this RM40 for emergency and extras or should I just donate to Jibby?) 

But seriously…How to Bersusah-susah dahulu, bersenang-senang kemudian with this budget. Tell me how.
