Everyone has been impacted strongly by COVID-19. People have been laid off, business  have been either temporarily closed or permanently closed. Some companies filed bankrupt. This pandemic has effected everyone all over the world.

TIPS ON SAVING MONEY DURING COVID-19.

SAVINGS ACCOUNT

  • Everyone should have a savings account. Right now its hard to save anything but when you were working at least $50.00 to $100.00 should have been put into your savings. That money would have been your emergency money to use in an event  like this.

SAVING MONEY

  • Your stimulus check should be used wisely. Pay the most important bills, buy some food supplies and put some away.
  • Do the same with your tax return.

CUT BACK ON NON-ESSENTIAL ITEMS

  • Magazine Subscriptions
  • Book Subscriptions
  • Movies/TV Subscriptions
  • Music Subscription
  • Gym Subscriptions

Most of these things are offered online for free

DOWNGRADE YOUR PHONE, CABLE & INTERNET PLANS

  • Call your cable company and inform them that money is very tight right now and see what type of help they are offering at this present time. If any.
  • Before calling them look into alternative solutions to your problem. Not all companies are offering relief to their valued customers, so look up other companies in your area that may offer a discounted rate during this time.
  • Another solution is to look into a Roku, Fire Stick or subscribe to Netflix.
  • Call your phone company and see if they are offering discounts on your monthly bill payment if not threaten to switch phone services.
  • Same thing with your internet service. Call your provider and see what type of relief they are offering or just downgrade your plan until you can afford your original plan.
