7 Ways to Tackle the Rising Cost of Living
1. Find ways to cut your energy usage, in the home, office or factory. Undertake an audit of all appliances and equipment to find savings. Know how to get the best output from your                  machinery and appliances. Check the Makers instructions.

2. Prepare a Budget for your Business and Household. Create and/or, review the existing one to see if and where there can be any trimmings and savings. Monitor closely.

3. Shop wisely only buying essentials, for both Households and Businesses. Watch for specials and bonuses and negotiate best deals and packages. You don’t know if you don’t ask.                Importantly, Stick to your budget.

4. Check all your current loans and mortgages. Talk to your lender if needed. And be smart, shop around to find if you can get a better deal.

5. See if you, your Business is eligible for any Government subsidies, vouchers or benefits. Don’t be nervous when it comes to asking, and if you qualify accept it.

6. Overstocked, old stock or home clutter, sell ‘stuff’ you aren’t using or moving off the floor. There could be a ready buyer just around the corner waiting for your surplus items.

7. Build your resilience. Resilience is your ability to adapt and be flexible, and these strengths will help you better weather the storm. Feeling overwhelmed, seek professional help if your            health and well-being are affected.
