(ModernSurvival.org) – People are excited about receiving their COVID Stimulus check from the government. Unfortunately, many see it as an extra bit of money to go out and blow on whatever shiny item that catches their eye.
Before rushing out to buy something we might not really need, we should consider a few things first. Like the mortgage or rent, food, water and bills. We don’t want these things to pile up into a lump sum when this is over. If that money is burning a hole in your pocket, we have five items you may want to consider.
The first thing you may want to purchase is a medical kit. Don’t go cheap on it either — get a good one. If you get an injury that isn’t life-threatening, you may need to treat it at home. The hospitals are being flooded with COVID patients right now making it harder to get care for minor issues.
Long term food supplies, such as Meals Ready-to-Eat (MRE), would be a good choice right now too. Having a long-term backup of food is a good idea in the best of times, more so now. A deep freezer is another option to help build your food stores — allowing you to stock up and avoid going to the grocer as often. You could also invest in a garden, this way you can produce food for yourself and your family.
With the world bent to the will of the coronavirus, we need to be careful with all of our supplies. This includes our money. No one knows how long COVID will be running rampant or how bad it will hurt the economy before it is done. Sure a shiny new television would be nice, but you won’t be able to eat it if S really HTF.
