11/15(Tue.) The Secret to Frugal Luxury (Host: Liwen)

Dear all,
Do you want to be a financially responsible person who can effectively manage finances? Or do you want to treat yourself without any restriction? Let’s talk about how to buy less but better.

Buy Less but Better: The Secret to Frugal Luxury


Q1. How do you spend your money? What kind of lifestyle do you live? Frugal, luxury or some type else?

Q2. When buying something, what else besides price and quality would you want to consider?

Q3. Would you pay a higher price for a better quality good? How much higher is acceptable for you?

Q4. What item or service of regular use would you choose quantity over quality for the same price?

Q5. What are some purchases where cheap is not necessarily of bad quality and expensive is not necessarily the best quality?

Q6. I always overspend on clothes and shoes. Consumerism can become a terrible addiction and bad for the environment, of course, the bank balance! Do you have any tip to kick the habit?

Q7. Have you ever heard of OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) products? Is buying OEM products safe and legal (OEM mask, Health Supplements)? What is the risk of buying OEM products?

Q8. What brand of product still does its main function well after many years or decades? Can you recommend some brand you like? For example, brand of car, 3C product, sneakers, washing machine, fridge, air conditioner, etc.
