"Hello Stranger: The Movie" stars JC Alcantara and Gillian Vicencio have some tips for their fans when it comes to handling finances amid the pandemic.
In an exclusive interview with the two Rise artists, they opened up about how they balance saving for rainy days and treating themselves.
JC said that he doesn't deprive himself despite being a "matipid" person.
"Matipid ako pero gusto ko ring i-reward sarili ko. Tapos minsan kapag stressed ako, shopping 'yung nagpapasaya sa'kin. Kaya ang tagal ko sa [mall], nag-iikot ikot lang ako," he shared.
The actor also said there's nothing wrong with being kuripot when it comes to your spending habits. "Maging kuripot ka. Minsan kasi may mga taong kusang nagti-treat sa'yo pero wag mo naman abusuhin. Magbigay ka rin kung kailangan and mag-ipon ka. Kung ano man ang binibigay sa'yo, 'wag mong gastusin lahat. Be wise lalo pagdating sa pera."
Gillian, on the other hand, said that she doesn't spend upfront when she wants to purchase something. Instead, she tries to find a cheaper alternative for the item she really wants to buy.
"Hindi kasi ako pala-shopping on my own. Bumibili lang talaga ako kapag sobrang gusto ko siya. Kahit may sobrang gusto kasi ako, naghahanap ako ng mas mura. Kunyari itong type of shoes, gusto ko siya pero ang mahal. So maghahanap ako ng ibang mas mura," she shared.
The "Four Sisters Before the Wedding" actress also emphasized the importance of setting a budget.
"Mag-budget ka. Mag-set ka ng budget para hindi ka mag-go over [sa gastusin]. Saka mag-ipon. Importante 'yung pag-iipon kasi hindi natin alam kung kailan tayo magkakaroon ng emergency," she stressed.
