Four Pandemic Habits Worth Keeping

In the last year and a half, we’ve picked up various habits as a result of coronavirus shutdowns.  Here are four pandemic practices that are worth sticking to!

Streaming home entertainment. During the pandemic, many people opted for streaming services instead of regular cable. A streaming service like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video or Hulu can be a great replacement for cable, and can save you hundreds a year! Some services like Sling TV and HBO Max will even allow you to stream a specific channel online.

Tipping generously. Employees in the restaurant industry dealt with a lot of hardships throughout the pandemic. Americans began tipping extra on orders, and the average tip reached an all-time high. Maintain a habit of tipping at least 20 percent to show your appreciation for restaurant workers and all they do!

Shopping smarter. Maybe you discovered online grocery delivery for the first time, or perhaps you taught yourself to become a pro-couponer. These are smart habits that can help you save a great deal of money over time! You should also take advantage of your Benefits Plus® checking with SeaComm, which gives you exclusive access to a variety of retail discounts and savings – including gift and eGift cards at up to 15% off, and a free Grocery Coupon Club membership.

Saving more.  Whether out of choice or necessity, many people spent less money in the last year and a half. Americans’ fears of the pandemic grew amid record job losses and a sinking economy, and the country went on an unprecedented saving spree.
