Even though this is a time to cut back on your spending, there are some items that may be necessary that could help you achieve your goals and help you save in the future. Here are the things you should consider purchasing.
Essential Grocery Items in Bulk
Although it is good to be stocked up, and when you decide to purchase these items, buy them in bulk. Why? It’s simple – you get a better deal. In addition, you also save resources such as plastic when you buy in bulk. Bulk buys work well for items you can freeze or put in your pantry for later use. These items might include: anything frozen or canned, paper goods, and bottled water.
As gyms remain closed or only partially open and we continue to stay home, it is a great time to invest in gym equipment. Purchasing items like a treadmill or dumbbells will help you work out more effectively. These items will still be useful even after COVID-19 and you may realize that you don’t need your gym membership!
Do you have withdrawals from your beauty routine? Whether it is getting your hair and nails done, getting a massage monthly or going on a beauty haul at Sephora or Ulta, there are still ways to do those things. Take the time and purchase nail polish, face masks and a DIY hair coloring kit from your local drug store, order hair cutting supplies online, or if you have the luxury, purchase your special hair dye concoction from your favorite hair salon for pick-up. If you miss trying new beauty products, order some online from your favorite beauty store and try them out.
