It has been 36 days since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented in our home country on March 18th, so the million dollar question is, Can MCO help us save money?
In this episode of #TerkiniwithNandini Fly’s Am Mayhem and Nandini discuss if MCO can help us save money?
Nandini and Fly’s Am Mayhem agree that MCO is helping them save! But there are people who are struggling as to where and when to spend their money.
With the implementation of MCO, your savings play a crucial role! It’s important to acknowledge that at times like this, you need something to fall back onto, so start saving!
“Asian Malaysian food is really cheap, with the groceries you can buy here, so you’re already saving on food if you cook.”- Nandini
The temptation to online shop is always there but there needs to be a sense of control. Buy necessities is what you need to prioritize.
Nandini also discussed how many companies and employers would have made a lot of losses, resulting in paycuts or even loosing your jobs.
” Are you worried about finances? Idealistically this could end soon an we can all go back to our lives but I think a lot of companies and employers are having this conversation with their employees about how to move forward when all o this is over Even if we resume our normal lives,we still have to reel in the fact that a lot of companies would have made a lot of losses.
So if you have money and still getting your full salaries right now, its a good time to save it not use it, because e don’t know if we are gonna end getting pay cuts right? Save your money! Don’t online shop!”- Nandini

In conclusion, its no doubt that this pandemic is a hard and stressful time for us all, the least we can do is save little by little, cook as much as we can and don’t fall for the temptation of online shopping. Also don’t forget to contribute and ease the burden of the frontliners by #stayathome but if you have funds to spare please don’t forget the less fortunate #kitajagakita.
