It’s more or less official that 2014 is going to be mighty difficult on our wallets: the increase in electricity tariff, petrol, assessment, stationery, and possibly tolls as well, will leave us little to work with next year.
Of course, every year people around the globe look to make resolutions to be healthier, happier and financially fitter and many Malaysians are going to be getting in on the act too.
Just for fun, we scoured the internet and asked around for the most extreme money saving resolutions.
It’s really for laughs, but hey, if you’re interested in giving it a go… we won’t be responsible for what happens!
Warning: these tips may also result in you losing friends, clients and possibly your job too as you may not smell altogether rosy! If you’d like more legitimate ideas: here’s an interesting blog post on water saving

Yes, we are being funny! But then again, as our wallets get flattened continuously from one price rise to another, one does start to wonder where reality ends and ludicrousness begins.
In all seriousness, what will you be resolving to do in 2014?
