How to Rethink Your Finances During the Novel Coronavirus Crisis

During this time of economic crisis caused by the novel coronavirus, many people are struggling to remain financially stable. If you are low on income and need help making it through the next few months, find out if the following steps fit into your lifestyle.


Take out a Loan
If you have financial responsibilities that exceed your income, consider taking out a loan. Explore the different options online, such as https://creditarch.com/, to find a payment plan that makes sense for you. Remember that you must pay the loan back with the addition of interest, so do not sign up for a loan that you cannot afford to repay.












Cook From Home
Restaurants are closed in most states now, but many still offer takeout and delivery services. These options are attractive, particularly if working from home or caring for your children keeps you busy all day. However, frequently ordering food from a restaurant is both unhealthy and expensive. To save money, cook for yourself as much as possible. Do not worry if you have never cooked before now; you can find many tutorials online, and basic meals such as spaghetti and tacos can be ready in less than half an hour.

Limit Your Time in the Car
If you are not an essential worker, you probably only need to drive to purchase groceries. Reduce your gas consumption by avoiding unnecessary trips. For example, if you can walk to the post office, don’t drive. You’ll save money on gas, and you’ll also slow the spread of the virus by limiting the places to which you travel.
Cut out Unnecessary Services
Many companies offer low-cost monthly subscriptions to services such as music and video streaming. These bills may seem cheap at first, but they can quickly add up. Evaluate all of the monthly subscriptions that you have and determine which ones you use the most. Balance the need to entertain yourself and your family during this stressful time with the realities of your budget. Additionally, if you usually have food delivered to your house, drive to the restaurant to pick it up. While you must pay for gas, you’ll save money on tips.

Everyone is struggling to adjust to this time of crisis, but it’s even more challenging if you face budget problems. Look over your finances and see if you can make any of these changes to save money and make it through these difficult months.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
