Depending on your circumstances, inflation’s effect on prices may or may not be affecting you. For example, if you’re working remotely (or driving an electric vehicle!), you won’t need to worry about higher gasoline prices. No matter what your situation, here are some tips to consider.

  1. Reduce discretionary, non-essential spending. If you’re able to postpone weekend travel and skip a few drive-thru or take-out meals, these savings will make a big difference.
  2. Identify online subscriptions and cancel those you aren’t using. You may be surprised to discover how many unwatched, unwanted television channels, memberships, and online games you’re paying for each month.
  3. Renegotiate your monthly cable, streaming and cell phone bills. While these calls can be time-consuming, any savings will be worth it.
