In case you missed it, Julia Barretto just gave us a glimpse of her closet on her YouTube channel. And by the looks of it, the 23-year-old actress has amassed quite an impressive designer shoe and bag collection. But, as it turns out, she has turned over a new leaf.
Nowadays, Julia doesn't make a huge effort in growing her designer collection anymore. The reason? "Adulting stage na ako," Julia reveals. After moving in her new home in 2019, Julia shares in her vlog that her financial priorities have shifted since then. Looking back, she thinks it's funny that before, shoes were one of her major motivators in working hard. Julia refrains now from buying bags and shoes because she's "more careful with [her] expenses." She adds that this new outlook on money comes from the fact that she "takes care of her bills now [like] electricity, water, wages, everything." These utility bills therefore, take the cake from Julia's budget.
What's more, Julia even holds back in buying new perfumes—a big ask considering she's a huge perfume collector. Did you know she would usually buy three bottles in one go to reward herself? But now, She thinks long and hard before buying a new scent. "Now that I live on my own, and ako na nagra-run ng household, tipid na’ko," Julia admits. "Kuripot na ako."
Her new frugal attitude also extends to clothes. "Hindi pa ako ever nakakabili ng designer clothes," she says. "Hindi ko alam if it’s something I’ll ever do. Maybe for like a ball, a wedding, or an important event. Pero 'yung pang every day, 'wag na. Oh my gosh. Pangbayad ko na lang 'yon ng Meralco," Julia quips.
