A 24-year-old woman from Batangas recently went viral on social media after she revealed her savings in 2022!
Beablanca Macuha started the “invisible P50” money challenge in December 2021. Little did she know, she would actually save thousands of pesos!
“Bale po way back kasi yun December 2021, nagpapalit pa ako sa friend ko ng 50s na malulutong tapos po at the end of the month, may natira po akong parang mga 4-5 pieces eh nung nasa akin na po parang nanghihinayang akong gastusin siya kasi parang malutong siya eh,” Beablanca shared with The Philippine STAR.
“So naisip ko parang, bat di ko na lang dagdagan kasi hindi ko rin naman siya magastos eh, nakakapanghinayang. Ginawa ko po, tinry ko po ‘yung invisible 50. Sabi ko aabot kaya ako dito hanggang kalahating taon kasi goal ko po nun maka one year,” she added.
Beablanca became consistent each day. She shared that she did not think that she would be successful in achieving her goal. “Parang habang patagal nang patagal dumadami nang dumadami, mas na-ti-trigger ako na dagdagan siya.”
Beablanca said that her initial goal was to save up for six months but to her surprise, she managed to finish the money challenge for a year.
All in all, she was able to save P39,250! “I-aadd ko para madagdagan ‘yung baboy ko kasi may business po ako.”
“Nung binuksan ko nung December 11, 2022, nashock din po ako kasi hindi ko po inakala na ganun na kadami,” she added.
Netizens commended Beablanca’s discipline in saving money. As of writing, the uploaded video on social media has already garnered more than 600,000 views on TikTok.
Beablanca aims to encourage the public to save money and to educate them on the importance of having a savings.
“This 2023, mag-ipon na rin po talaga para sa future na din. Parang naiisip ko po ang gagawin ko po is invisible 100 pesos naman. Bilhin natin ‘yung mga gusto natin pero i-make sure natin na may natatabi tayo kasi hindi natin alam baka bukas magkaproblema, para may madukot ka,” she noted.
