Good morning, {$name}!

I don’t know about you, but the holiday has started on this side, and I’m writing this to you excited about watching Netflix the entire day.

Don’t get me wrong, I would like to go outside and socialise, but the price of fuel has doubled, and I strongly believe that there’s a way I can arrange my house to make it look like a bar. So maybe I’ll do that.

This week we have a recap of the most-read stories of 2022 and a fantastic Love Currency story from an older couple doing business and relying on pension payments that only show up sometimes.

In this letter:

  • #NairaLife: Most-Read stories of 2022
  • #LoveCurrency: Family Life in Warri, Delta State, on a ₦51k Fixed Pension
  • Money Meanings: “YOLO”
  • Where The Money At?!

We’ll call it #NairaLifeWrapped!

It’s been a long year of exciting Naira Life stories. There was one story that dropped on salary day. You could hear us collectively hissing at our salaries that day.

So we decided to compile all the stories you loved this year and give you a chance to reread them and, of course, share them with people who may have missed them.

Family Life in Warri, Delta State, on a ₦51k Fixed Pension

One thing I always wonder about is how old people navigate life when they’ve been told to legally retire. I used to think that their pension payments were a given (if it wasn’t coming directly from the government). I was wrong.

In this edition of Love Currency, we speak to a 63-year-old man about his relationship with money and how he and his wife cater for themselves.

When he is asked about his ‘financial future’, he says: “Future? At 63 it’s hard to have plans for the future.
