Yesterday, I went to SM Taytay and found an unusual scenery inside the department store.
Mothers, along with their kids, flock in school supplies' section! Raiding the shelves of notebooks, seizing pieces of ballpen and pencils, and finding school uniform that will fit well for the child.
But what really struck me-- perhaps, smile me about- was that each mother has own calculator or sheet of paper and a ballpen. They cast, compute. Indeed, all things should be budgeted!
Sign of hard times huh?
Good thing, their kids seem to understand it and some of them, actually, offered their hand to find budget-friendly stuffs.
