Dobby Dobson got a lot of flack for his hit song ‘Loving Pauper’ back in the day but honesty counts for a lot in a relationship. A man who has nothing and tells his girl that he has nothing and expects her to stay with him, is not only an honest man but very brave in an epoch when women are known for being materialistic and cynical. A broke man who is either unemployed or under employed has to get creative when finding ways to make his significant other feel special.
We all know it takes cash to care but our pocket really should not dictate how romantic we are or how creative we can be in making our significant other feel valued and appreciated. While cash is still king, you can have a blast on a budget with a little ingenuity and a whole lot of common sense.
So last year I moved house as I needed to downsize not so much in space as I love space but in finances. I was paying out way too much money each month for rent and utilities and was close to eating ramien noodles daily to survive. That is so not me!
