5 saving tricks to counter inflation

Prices are rising and there is no price reduction in sight. To counter inflation, many people are starting to save. There are a few tips and tricks that help to leave more money in your account at the end of the month. Starting with food, but there are also many other areas where you can save cleverly.

Saving tricks to counter inflation

The expensive prices lure many consumers to the cheap discounters. Instead of brand names, no-name products are bought, the cheapest that the discounter has to offer. The shelves are full of products with additives and preservatives. All the contents that we actually don't want. Often there is not much left of the food itself. Somehow the money has to last until the end of the month. But does shopping at the discounter have to be an inevitable way to save a little in the end? Or can we eat healthily and watch our finances at the same time?

1. meal preparing instead of canteen:

If you skip going to the canteen, you can save quite a bit of money each month. Our tip: Try to prepare a portion for your lunch break the day before. If you don't have the time, you can also, for example our muesli or a Wacker soup to take to work.

2. invest in healthy food:

Our products consist only of good ingredients and are particularly nutrient-rich due to the germination process. They keep you full for a long time and you can do without a snack between meals or eat smaller meals. Small side effect: With the vitamin power you can get through the day fit 😊

3. buy seasonally and regionally

Buying seasonal and regional food makes sense in many ways. We do without the long transport routes and thus not only save money, but also do something good for our climate 😊

4. buy food with a long shelf life

We should not do without fresh fruit and vegetables. Otherwise, it makes sense to buy food with a long shelf life. This way you have to shop less often and can save fuel. Because the products have a long shelf life, less ends up in the rubbish. Did you know that our Mueslis also in stock packs there? This saves additional packaging waste.

Saving in other areas

According to an evaluation by the Federal Institute for Agriculture and Food, people in Germany spend only a small part of their income on food, even compared to other European countries. So are there other areas where we can save? It is well known that nutrition plays an important role in our health. So before we save on the quality of our food and thus on our health, we should consider what other expenses are really necessary. For example, does it have to be the latest smartphone or can the old one be used for a few more years? Often, even small habits are enough to have more money in the wallet at the end of the month:

  • Unplug electrical appliances when they are not in use.
  • Shock ventilation instead of tilting windows.
  • Keep radiators clear.
  • Cycle or take the train to work.
  • Buy and sell used.

In addition to a fuller wallet, these actions counteract the throwaway culture or are good for our environment and our climate. So it's worth thinking about a frugal and sustainable lifestyle anyway 😊

    Hello Maren,

    These are tips that everyone should know, but very few take to heart.
    Personally, I almost only cycle. However, fuel is probably not yet expensive enough when I look here and see that the shortest distances are travelled by car.

    Thank you so much for the constant messages. I'm trying my hand at alkaline nutrition, but that's still going better πŸ˜‰

      Dear Martina,
      Thank you very much for your feedback. Cycling is a great alternative πŸ™‚ You save money, you do something good for the environment and you still get exercise at the same time πŸ™‚
      Good luck with the alkaline diet πŸ™‚
