Playing Pandemic Money-Saving Tips from an Expert

If you're having trouble paying your bills during the pandemic, you are not alone -- but we have tips from a money expert that can help.

The Doctors share troubling statistics related to COVID: 1 in 4 adults have had trouble affording their bills since the outbreak of COVID-19, 1 in 3 people have had to dip into their savings to make ends meet, and 1 in 6 people have asked loved ones for help or received food from a food bank.  

We are joined by the CEO of Crush Your Money Goals Bernadette Joy, who shares tips on how to save money and pay off debt -- even in these uncertain times.

Focus on what you can control financially for the next 30 days

Bernadette says to avoid looking beyond 30 days until you have 1 month mapped out and says once you have your month under control to then move on to bigger money goals.

Use her acronym "F.L.O.W."

  • Face your financial fears - and do not stress about making money mistakes now and then
  • Let the experts in - instead of doing it alone, seek the advice and guidance from a financial expert in order to save even more -- especially on your taxes
  • Owning everything within your control - Instead of trying to control something like the pandemic, she says to focus on something you can control like your food and transportation expenses
  • Work less - Bernadette says instead of getting a second job or a side hustle, she feels streamlining your finances can help you avoid having to trade your non-work time for extra money
