I have been buying locally made groceries for years now. These goods are usually cheaper since there are no extra costs involved in transporting them. Plus, they are almost always homemade so the quality is very good. Not only do you get a product that is free from adulteration, but also you get an opportunity to help someone earn a living.

I agree with the part about not buying branded items. Branded clothes are extremely expensive even if they are long lasting. My sister always buys branded clothes for her son. Every few months he wants new jeans and shoes. It is such a waste of money. She never even says no to him.

Subject:  I agree
I agree with you completely. I do not understand why people are so keen on brands. They are just too expensive. Whenever I need to buy clothes for my children, I always opt for unbranded items. After all, they are still growing and within six months, they have outgrown the clothes. Only when they are older will I consider buying branded items for them.

RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
Hello dear this is really weird behave of your husband towards you, please do one thing just speak to your husband directly and ask him whether he really loves and want to spend the rest of his life with you or not. Just go and ask him upfront and see the reaction on it.... - Anaida [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
According to me you should not act like this as this is really sad to see that your husband is treating you so badly infact you should make him understand that this is not the way you are asked to be treated and the same will continue then it will be bad for him.... - Anita [View Message]

RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
Hello friend this is not acceptable and why are you not raising your voice against injustice on you. Please speak to your husband on this and make him feel that what he is doing is completely wrong with you and ask him directly what is the reason behind it.... - Aditi [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
If the husband follows the inlawas means its very clear that he will always listen to them instead to you, in this matter i can clearly say that you are not living the life you deserve and just helping your husband in his living and earning for him.... - Sujata [View Message]
RE:Miserly In laws & Hubby
You are earning a good amount of money monthly and as you have said that your husband is also earning very well then why are you giving your money to him and why are you not questing him about his earnings as its your rights on it, please speak up on this.... - Suman [View Message]
