Ever heard of the saying, “Pangalan lang binibili mo diyan?” This is generally true. We spend a higher price on brand-name products compared to those without established brand names.

When it comes to medicines, groceries and other home items, it might be best to go for generic brands that let you achieve the same things as branded ones.

5. Telecommute, work hybrid
