Hot Deal

What things did you buy with your first salary?

I had bought shoes for my parents, a dress for my sister. I had taken a Nature’s subscription for myself. It was my childhood dream to have a subscription of nature. Then I had bought bourneville chocolates for my flat mates. But most of them denied to accept it. They kept demanding me for chocolates. But when I bought for them, suddenly they chickened out. 😔😔😔 It took a lot of convincing. So, I anticipated similar move from my roommate. But Shoaib bhai was very happy for his 10₹ Munch. It was a weird experience. Then I proceeded to buy PowerAmp for my phone as everyone was super excited for it. But sadly my phone didn’t support it. It was double whammy for me. Within four days of receiving my salary, half of it was gone. A big chunk of the remaining half was gone for my rent. So, the rest 26 days was super challenging for me. I tried skipping meals. But it didn’t work out. I tried to board busses without any tickets with moderate success. Frankly my parents were lenient with me at that time. So, big lesson was learnt. If you are a salaried person then don’t act like a billionaire. 🙂🙂🙂

Almost after a decade, I would like to ask the same question, which I faced up on receiving my first paycheck, “Why did you do/what do you want to do with your first salary?”

Deal Wiki

In 2014, things like brokers etc were a bit easier. I can remember HDFC gave me two years access to HDFC securities for free. My friends had accounts with Sharekhan. I was getting mails about Zerodha. Finally I had a brief encounter with an agent who sold me useless insurances but no mutual funds. 😔😔😔 A sob story indeed. Overwhelmed with selfish demands from my friend, work related things n transition into a self dependent lifestyle, I had completely forgotten that there exist something beyond it. I wish I had started some SIPs, I wish I had bought some stocks. I will blame myself for these. I chose wrong friends. 🙂 That’s the common problem with people coming from a relatively calm, sober, peaceful and small state like Odisha. These are my post Durgapuja hangover thoughts. I am very sad today. I am feeling sad because, long festival season is already halfway. After 15days Diwali will be gone. Then I ll come newyear. But I have to wait for another year for these days to come. 😔😔😔 Time moves pretty fast n I am really really feeling weak n sad.

Tip
1) Don’t get lured by credit cards n over draft facilities of debit cards.

Nice bhai. 🙂🙂🙂

Even after 3 years of consecutive salary, I still paying back dues like education loan , home reconstruction and many more things . As of now I don’t have any open loan or dues from any parties including my friends but zero balance in my savings. It doesn’t mean I have spent unnecessarily. It also doesn’t mean I am not enjoying all other things.

well well well… I also wanted to spend my first salary on all the things that I wished for and on my parents n siblings, but alas had to spend nearly all of them (in fact first 2-3 months), on rent, security deposit, getting all the household electronics, kitchen stuff and basic furniture and all… Oh boy, those days were a different experience.

Thankyou for 10₹ munch!

I don’t know, most probably he is a different guy. He is 6 years elder than me. We used to get into different arguments. 🐒🐒🐒 He would come home and sit infront of his computer and watch Sherlock. He had a music system. But I had no noise policy, so he ended up selling his system. He had sooo diverse knowledge on soo many things. He was the one who introduced me to the world of future and options. My roommate had pooled money during 2014 election day and earned 14-15 lakhs. I was like are not they gambling! Shoaib bhai said not unless they know what they are doing. Honestly I didn’t progress much in that field during our stay. He was a fitness freak. I have learnt a lot of things from him. He is a good guy. Not entirely good. He brought me mixture from Indore. He gave n took chicken parties. He also accused me of stealing food from fridge. He won’t flush properly. Always he would find reason to blame things. But he gave solid advices. I will say my first financial advisor is him. 🙂🙂🙂 Bitter sweet memories.
