Ever feel like you have to choose between enjoying life and making responsible financial decisions? With these money-conscious tips, you don’t have to choose.
1. Make the commitment
2. Manage social expectations
If you’re trying to save or cut back on spending, make it known to your family and friends. There’s no shame in letting your people know that you’re trying to switch things up.
3. Guilt-free splurging
Decide how often you want to eat out and where so you can stay within budget. A great way to stay money-conscious after the lockdown is over, is to try The Entertainer app to find amazing foodie spots, and bill-splitting apps like Splid or Splitwise the next time you’re out with your girls.
4. You’re just pre-rich, girl
We love local author Mapalo Makhu’s best-selling book, You’re Not Broke, You’re Pre-Rich! It’s packed with tips to help you live your best financial life.
5. Hit the road
A long-weekend adventure (post-lockdown) is totally possible with a little planning. Figure out your budget and choose an affordable road-trip destination.
6. Get Creative
We now know for sure that social butterflies can stay home too. Games night, movie night and virtually hanging out with your favourite people doesn’t have to come with a hefty bill. Put your cooking skills to the test and make your favourite snacks.
