Remember the viral post we featured last May about the netizen who saved P42,300 through a brilliant 50-peso technique?
Well, looks like Yona Abella has inspired her fellow netizens to the same. Following her footsteps, two anonymous Facebook users shared their 50-peso saving challenge success stories on the Facebook page Peso Sense.
The first 50-peso saver shared her experience last July 29. According to the post, she started saving last May—the time when FHM.com.ph featured the post. From May to July, she was able to save a total pf P10,000 pesos.
“Nag-start na ako sa 50-peso challenge ko nung May. Lahat ng 50 pesos ko ginagawa ko ng invisible. Meaning bawal gastusin kahit wala ka ng pamasahe bawal talaga. Sa dalawang buwan ko na ganyan ginagawa ko, binilang ko siya ngayon at umabot na ako ng 10k,” the post says.
Meanwhile, the second 50-peso saver posted her story yesterday, July 30. This time, it was her and her boyfriend who tried the saving dare. The couple also started the challenge last May, and they now have a total of P6,700 saved.
“Nagsimula po kami ng 50-peso challenge nung nakita namin na may gumawa ng ganyan kaya naisipan din namin subukan. Sa tuwing may sukli or sobra sa pera namin na 50 pesos hinuhulog namin sa alkansya,” the couple shared.
“Kahapon binuksan na namin dahil napuno na siya naisip namin na kada may mapupuno kami ihuhulog na namin sa savings kesa nakatago. Hindi namin akalain nakaipon kami ng ganyan kahit pakonti konti!”
Now if you thought that these saving challenges are impossible to do, well, think again!
