The Philippines' rainy season provides a welcome relief from the heat of the dry season. Though we love the idea of cool and refreshing nights during the rainy season, it also carries risks associated with things like flooding and typhoons. By being thrifty, though, we may still have a good time and not break the bank this time of year. Here are seven creative ways Filipinos can save money while staying indoors during the rainy season.
1.Turn off unnecessary electricity - When it's raining, there's no point in turning on the air conditioner. Don't forget to turn off lights and appliances when you're not using them, and open windows and doors to let in some fresh air. Saving money on your electricity bill by cutting down use of appliances is one way this rainy season can help us.
2. Stock up supplies - Going out in the rain, especially during floods, is miserable. So stock up on tinned food, medicine, and bathroom basics. For long-term savings, buy in bulk during sales.
3. Cooking at Home - Food delivery during the rainy season can be tempting, but it can also put a strain on your budget. Embrace the opportunity to cook at home, exploring traditional Filipino recipes that suit the weather. Preparing homemade sinigang, tinola or arroz caldo is not only comforting but also a more affordable option compared to food delivery.
4.Repair home damages before the rainy season - Don't let the rain enter your house and cause damage. Repair any broken seals around windows and doors, replace damaged weather stripping, and clean out the gutters. It may cost more up front, but it will save more expensive repairs down the road.
Rainy season doesn't mean financial doom. Pinoys can enjoy the season while protecting their money by making smart choices. Energy-efficient, stocking supplies, and fixing your home damages are some thrifty ways you can save money even if it’s raining.
