Inflation has been a hot topic recently, negatively affecting people’s lives. The cost of everything from gas and fuel to groceries goes up, and our budgets become tighter each day. It can seem like inflation happens to us and is out of our control, but there’s hope. Here are 3 ways to deal with rising inflation.
1. Review your spending
Take a moment to understand what you are spending money on and why. Does it bring you joy? If it doesn’t, then stop. This will help reduce or eliminate the effect of rising inflation in this spending category. When money is tight, it’s crucial to spend more consciously.
2. Find ways to save
You can save money with a few minor adjustments to your day-to-day expenses. When shopping, opt for generic products or buy bulk items you use regularly. Alternate between driving and taking public transportation, or combine your errands in one trip to save on fuel.
3. Cut some expenses
Recurring bills are expenses that are often overlooked, but are areas where you can save money. Cut what you don’t need and reduce or negotiate the rest. Everyday bills that could be cut or reduced are phone, internet, car insurance, and monthly subscriptions.
