We are all looking for ways to save money to help us through this crisis. The Coronavirus pandemic has sent the world economy into a financial downturn. With job losses at an all time high, most have little to no disposable income to spend let alone save.
However, there are a few clever tricks we could all implement to manage our cashflow. With this in mind, we’ve compiled some great ways that could help ease some of your financial anxiety.
1.Plan Your Meals
Creating a meal plan for the week or the month will not only save up some cash for
you but it can also reduce impulsive buying. It is also very important to buy your
groceries in bulk so that it limits the need for you to constantly go and pick up
something from the supermarket.
2.Workout For Free
A lot of us are probably excited the pandemic is here so we can get our bodies in
shape, that means we finally got that gym membership so we can start working
out. The membership is not really a great idea if you are trying to save up on cash, with their re-opening still uncertain.
Instead, it is worth reconsidering some amazing and effective home workouts that you can do. One of them is T25 as well as a variety of free workouts on YouTube. The workouts available vary in intensity, and you work on your body without breaking your bank.
3.Do It Yourself
Due to panic-buying, some essential items like hand sanitizer are in short
supply right now. But did you know you can make your own at home? For
example, antiseptic spirit and glycerin can be mixed to make hand sanitizer. Out
of cleaning solution? White vinegar is a mild disinfectant and a great cleaning
agent. Hydrogen peroxide can also be used in this way.
While you’re shopping at the store, consider buying store brand items instead of
the more expensive name brands. Many are made by the brands themselves, so
you won’t be compromising quality while you’re saving money.
I hope some of these ideas will help you save some money.
