I recently talked to an economist for my vlog and the biggest realization that I got from him is that need to accept that things will be “like this” (how it is for us now) for the next few years. This pandemic has greatly hit our economy and this is the time to tighten our belts.
I also talked with Financial Advisor, Oskie King. We talked about financial management in a time of crisis. Again, what Oskie says is that we have to think about where to place our money at a time like this. If you have extra funds, stay invested. For those who just have enough on a day to day basis, clearly think about where you are spending your money.
So all of these experts really gave good advise. I’ve been successfully managing my finances since the beginning of the pandemic.
Come to think of it, we’re actually saving a lot more than we’re spending. We don’t have to go to the office. We can just cook food anytime we want.
But I don’t want to be a party pooper and just SAVE, SAVE, SAVE. We also need to relax. All these emotional ups and downs have made us tired and a little bit emotional lately (although I may just be speaking for myself 😄 Leave a comment below if you feel the same way).
