The past year hasn’t exactly been fun for any of us. Aside from the obvious toll of the pandemic, we’ve all changed the way we live and work to some degree. But the good news is that some of those changes might actually benefit your budget, so maybe you shouldn’t abandon them as things go back to normal. 

Some of those new habits might include…

Streamlined grocery shopping. Some people love grocery pickup, whereas others prefer to walk through the store and make their own selections. But aside from saving time, you have to admit that ordering groceries online has probably saved you money. Since you’re not wandering the store, hungry and confronting tempting options, you probably stick to your list and avoid impulse purchases. If you still haven’t tried it, give it a go!

Buying in bulk. We all learned a lesson about “panic buying” toilet paper, didn’t we? We should probably avoid that mistake in the future, so that we don’t create shortages. But if you prefer to keep the shelves stocked at home, do your bulk shopping when an item goes on sale. You won’t have to worry about shortages ,and you can save a bit of money.

Staying home. You’re probably feeling eager to get out of the house more these days, and no one can blame you. But exploring at-home entertainment options has helped many of us to trim some fat off of our budgets.

New healthier habits. Some of those “home entertainment” options might have included streaming exercise classes, daily walks, or learning to cook healthy meals. Keep it up, because good health can save you money on healthcare expenses later.

Keep up with your new garden. Gardening exploded in popularity over the past year. If you’ve started growing some of your own food, you know that homegrown fruits and veggies taste better, are healthier, and can save you money on produce.

Maintain your organizational system. If you took advantage of “lockdown” time to reorganize your home, hopefully you’ll keep up with your new system. An organized home usually translates into an organized mind; your financial life will benefit in numerous ways.
