For the first time in a while, things are starting to feel normal. Stores and restaurants are beginning to open back up in Florida, and while my family is still practicing social distancing, it feels good to finally get outside.
This past week I was thinking about some of the positive things that have come out of staying at home over the last 3 months.
Even with the ups and downs of digital learning, it has been nice to be more present with my daughter. We’ve cooked dinner together, walked the dog at local parks (again, always at least 6-feet away from other people), and even went on a self-guided mural tour of Downtown St. Pete.
It’s been fun exploring our own backyard without having to spend money. And truth be told, social distancing has been easy.
Another beneficial, yet completely unexpected result of the current pandemic has been saving money.
I didn’t realize it at first, but now that I have gone over my finances it seems that I have saved a decent amount due to canceled travel plans and generally spending less from reduced shopping trips. I’m also not going out for coffee and we haven’t dined out in over 12 weeks.
If you have similar COVID-19 savings, and I really encourage you to take a look at your recent bank statements because I was shocked at how much I cut out of my weekly budget, consider investing it in your kids with Florida Prepaid.
We’re down to the last few days of Open Enrollment, which officially ends on May 31.
