Gold as an Investment

Written on July 28th, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

The Lure of GoldFor women like me, gold has been an object of desire because of it natural beauty. I personally have acquired my own set of gold jewelries even before I got married, not only for its exquisiteness but it’s also for investment.

Gold is one of the most sought after means of exchange dating back centuries ago. Its beauty has made it a universal currency.

A lot of individuals nowadays are using it as an investment to protect them from fluctuations and depreciation. You can say that gold investment is a safe haven against any socio-economic and political instability.

How do acquire gold as an investment? Personally, I still have to learn about the ABC’s of Gold Investing. Investment advisors can educate you on how to properly invest on this precious metal. You can self –study and buy your gold in an outright purchase or even buy gold online. Obviously, you need to make sure that you’re dealing with a reputable dealer. Be sensible and conduct a background check for your safety and peace of mind.

In recent years, we have seen markets crash and having a diversified investment is one way protecting your life savings. As the old saying goes, “Do not put your eggs in one basket.”

Sucker for a Good Bargain

Written on April 4th, 2010 by sassymomno shouts

I admit I am sucker for bargain! Anything for a good bargain.

I remember my hubby talking over the phone with a good friend, I suddenly heard my name and asked him why? Apparently, his friend was inviting him to go and check out The Crocs Sale at the Mega Tent, he declined the invite by saying that I was already done with it. I laughed because he stressed out that, I always go for any sale, no matter what! I guess hubs really knows me, LOL!

Of course, it was just a laughing matter to my hubs but to my defense, I told him that I only go and hunt out for bargains if the product is really okay. If not, I just let it be. Nowadays, everyone needs to be practical, and hunt out for discounts however low it maybe.

Even when it comes to investments, you go for the one that is affordable and would fit your needs. The less cash you spend the better, as long as the you do not compromise the quality. Like when you’re scouting for affordable health insurance or car insurance, you review the coverage and try to compare it against its prices.
