Uncle8888 doesn't spend MORE than his net earned income after tax as he has been budgeting for his yearly spending.
He will be spending his LAST year's bonus in according to the following year economic forecast. He has picked up this habit after 1998 AFC when his variable bonus for that year was zero and his pay were cut for the first time since he started working in Aug 1977.
Our bonus and pay can never be seen as safe!
When time is looking bad ahead; he will stretch his last year's bonus over the next two years.
From his monthly and yearly spending trend, can this be frugality too?
I am 60+ yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has retired @ 60 on 30 Sep 2016.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 and now becoming full-time retail investor. So I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I have two sons and one daughter; two working adult children and the youngest son is currently in his 1st year SUTD.
I am currently executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038
