8 ways to save money during the COVID-19 pandemic

As many businesses have closed down and jobs have disappeared, one of the things that this pandemic has taught every household is to save more money than we usually do. Even if the government has provided aid for food or money, that is not enough for everyone to sustain their daily needs, making their daily life hard to fathom. We will definitely need to think of ways on how to save money and energy from the comfort of our own home. 

Here are eight (8) strategies on how we can save money and still be productive:

Grow some herbs. Buying vegetables in the market can really be costly especially that some vegetables are usually expensive due to high in demand. If you have a garden or backyard, you can start collecting seeds and carefully plan where to plant them. You can ask your friends to save some seeds for you too. Vegetables are very healthy and should be included in our table everyday.

Avoid buying bottled water. If you count the cost of each bottled water you purchase, you'd realize how much you have been spending. Instead, buy water by the 5-gallon containers or bigger and just refill your tumbler or bottle, especially when you are going out.

Get some exercise. As you continue to work from home, our body needs to pump up and be energized. Keeping our body and mind healthy would also save us from a lot of stress, fear and depression. Taking some vitamins and supplements help a lot too, but having some exercises or workout would surely brighten our day and make us productive in doing our daily tasks. 

Do not throw leftover food. There are so much food being put to waste because some don't like the sight of leftover food kept in the fridge. Leftover foods can still be saved to be eaten for your next meal or the next day. Some foods can also be given to your pets, as long as no food is left to spoil and get wasted. 

Plan your loads of laundry. It is wise to plan and prepare your next laundry and check if all basic items are present. Prepare if you can fill the allowable capacity of laundry in the washing machine -- in your house or out in a laundry shop. You can save a lot on detergent powder/liquid, fabric softener, water, and of time.

Use electric fans. We usually use our electric fans spinning from left to right. If temperature rises especially during the summer, try to make it steady so it blows air down on you directly. So you can avoid the need for more air conditioning than usual, thereby saving you on cost of electricity.

Budget your spending. Buying groceries and other necessities can really create a hole in your pocket. Buy only the things you need; no need to overspend for things not urgent or important. Get the cheapest possible item amongst the different brands and compare their prices versus quality. Check for available promo packs. You can even compute for the grams and determine which items give you the biggest savings. To help you estimate your weekly expenses, you might need a personal budget planner. It is also a way to see if your spending habits match your current income. 

Use free online resources. When you are stuck at home due to lockdown or quarantine, you might want to enrich your mind with reading and learning new things. There are so many free online services that offer ebooks, manuals, trainings, or even streaming services. Some modules even offer a free digital certificate upon completion of a program. Give them a shot! Add them to your bounty of knowledge and experience, and they can also boost your resume.

Old Spice brings much-needed dose of humor with its EPIC Video!

It’s so powerful that it can sell even being surrounded by ninjas. Too powerful that it can run from a meteorite, explode a planet, and still breathe in space. It leaves a death-defying smell to a man — The Smell That Never Dies in a can called Old Spice. 

Old Spice commercials have always been known for its outrageously comical visuals, and once again, it did not disappoint. The men’s antiperspirant and deodorant brand is back with its new campaign #TheSmellThatNeverDies. Old Spice serves us with the much-needed breath of fresh manly man entertainment — a commercial made in the Philippines for Filipino men who deserve nothing less. 

The action-packed video features an all-Filipino cast led by actor Victor Silayan as the ultimate action hero who never dies, thanks to his Old Spice superpowers of irresistible long-lasting smell. We see him getting a thumbs up from sharks in the dark depths of the sea, with twin anacondas wrapped around his pecs, ninjas and more. Ridiculously funny is an understatement for Frenchie Dy’s appearances, as she pops up in the most random places as the singer behind the clever and captivating song — that completes the all-around visual Pinoy EPICNESS! 

Staying at home ain’t an excuse for not staying fresh! If body odor can kill, then the long-lasting smell of Old Spice’s Body Spray is man’s key to immortality. Get your manly man legs moving and spray on some of #TheSmellThatNeverDies. Your body, family, and the Old Spice team will thank and love you! 

If you haven’t caught on with the latest trends, Filipino users are raving about this Old Spice commercial — admitting that they’ve searched and came to watch the commercial countless times! The YouTube comments are flooded with comments like:

“This is the dankest Filipino ad I ever saw.”
“This is the only ad I came searching because this was funny, and the song is catchy.”
“The only ad I didn't skipped... Even searched for it to re-watch.”
“The best Filipino old spice ad.”

We can’t deny that Filipino viewers are loving our commercial. Feast your eyes and watch the video here. Trust us, this is a commercial you will never want to miss! 
Don’t forget to check out what the buzz is with Old Spice’s awesome long-lasting smell. Get yourself Old Spice products through Shopee’s 9.9 Super Shopping Day until September 9, 2020 and have #TheSmellThatNeverDies straight to your home.
