Inflation? 5 Ways to Stretch Your Ringgit
Everyone is talking about inflation and if you are feeling the effects of it, you are not alone. Here are 5 ways to take initiative and stretch your ringgit so that you can still enjoy the same quality of life:

Monitor Spending 

It’s easy to overspend when you are not keeping track of your spending. A few ringgit here and there is bound to add up. Instead of wondering where all your ringgit is going, you can monitor it by writing it down or typing it out in a budgeting app or a spreadsheet. Once you identify where your money is unnecessarily being spent, you can take action to change that. 

Home Cooked Food

Like many things, eating out or ordering food delivery is getting more expensive. The good news is that the spending can easily be controlled here with home cooked foods. Start by replacing eating out or food delivery once a week from your routine. Instead use the amount that you could have spent to buy groceries instead, you’d be surprised at how long it will last you. Not to mention, home cooked foods are generally healthier!
