7 Common Things Singaporeans Don’t Realise Are A Waste Of Money

From health supplements to single-serve consumables to cable channel packages, here are 7 common ways Singaporeans waste money. We all have impulse purchases, which we make without thinking. If we learn to control these, we would have much more cash to spend on the things that we do care about. The following items aren’t really things that we love; they’re the habitual, money-wasting purchases that we should weed out. Bottled Water Singapore is currently suffering from a S$134 million bottled water addiction.

Healthcare S-REITs Rate-Hike Sensitivity Data Comparison

Can A Singaporean Survive On This Portfolio?

I have a friend (Let’s call him Mr Cat). Mr Cat is in his early thirties, contemplating about quitting his job and living on his portfolio. I told him that his dream is not possible unless his portfolio is generating cash flow of at least $2k per month.
