If we have more money, we would still opt for the same wedding that we had years ago. That’s not a fairy tale wedding, but something that I hoped for, a simple and memorable one.
Of course to each is own. Some love to have a grand, dream wedding. Some even want a well planned, almost perfect wedding. For me, wedding is just one day, but marriage is forever, so we need to prepare for that more than just the ceremony itself.

Long exchange of vows does not guarantee a steady and happy married life. Vows of trust, respect and love is best observed after your wedding day. It is not the bridal car, but how you drive each other to love and keep your married life alive. It is not the ring, but your commitment to live your promise on your wedding day.
Do you create a list? Well, I do this on an on and off basis, as I was not consistent with creating lists, but now I will do my best to create and complete one everyday. Here are some quick points on how to start with your own list today.
Create a list of tasks and things that you want to do every day. Once you have all of these listed out, then figure out how long each activity takes. This will allow you to identify tasks that you can include in your list when you have extra time.
It can also help you to arrange your daily activities in a way that gives you a longer amount of free time. You can get rid of unnecessary things or make a day to get them done so you can make the most of your days that already seem too full.
That way, you can make the most out of your time, which will allow you to have more opportunities to get things done and spend the rest of your free time to be with your spouse and have a happier married life.
They say that celebrating valentines day is something that can only be done in a grand setup. You know, going on a fine dining date, watching movies on high end theaters and spending time watching concerts and other valentine events.
I also want to go this route, but not as excited to do it though, because in my opinion, you can still celebrate this romantic occasion and save a lot of money in the process. This does not mean that you will sacrifice the quality of your celebration though. Here are some of the ways to do it:
- Look for recipes that you want to eat and cook it at home. This will allow you to really enjoy the food that you want to eat and have enough portions and servings that can even last until the next day. How cool is that?
- Have a movie marathon with your loved ones. This is really exciting especially when you have an entertainment room in the first place. Remember to prepare a bucket of popcorn for a complete movie experience.
- Visit your favorite charitable institution. The best way to express our love is to share our blessings to others in need. So get up and visit one near you or contact your preferred institution to set an appointment with them, if necessary.
Is there something that you want to quickly add to the list?
I have been checking out some opportunities as well as working on some of our personal projects these past few days. Doing these make me excited because I know I am doing something extra to bring food on the table.
I guess it is the same thing for the rest of the married couples like us, that we are not that contented with what we have simply because we wanted to have something to hold on in case of need. As for our case, doing online gigs is the way to go.
How about you? What do you do to earn extra income for the family?
