So almost everyone is on Shelter in Place orders and I am sure you are asking what are the things I am doing while we are going through this to save money.
I am blessed that I am an essential worker and even though I only work half the hours I still get paid my full check. My husband on the other hand was not able to go back to work so we are officially on one income till his unemployment comes in.
I showed you in my Planner Series that I used the detailed monthly area to do my budget based on my income. I have a set budget for groceries and gas now that I work less and order groceries from home I have moved my gas budget to my grocery budget.
Ordering and Freezing
We are ordering alot of fresh veggies and fruit ( Check out my Seasonal Fruit and Vegetables for the month, so that you can get them cheaper). I am cutting up fruit and putting them in the freezer for meals and smoothies to help save money (Check my Freezer Guide for ideas on what you can freeze).
I am also doing alot of cleaning. As you may or may not know I inherited a home in December after the death of my grandmother and I am busy making the house my home. So I am working on a ton of things. Such as organizing and reducing the clutter of my home.
Walking and Exercising
My husband started running twice a day to get out of the house and I walk the dog when the sun goes down around the cul de sac ( its a big one) on the days I work. I am working up to doing more. I also on the weekends do exercises in the yard with my husband.
On the weekend we have a date night. This weekend we are doing Italian dinner and dancing. We try to switch it up last weekend we had a BBQ.
What are you doing while your in the house? Leave a comment below I am replaying to all of them. 🙂
