World Bank Group President, David Malpass, expressed deep concern that these life-threatening trends will persist, with long-lasting consequences that are devastating for people in emerging markets and developing economies.
As the first step in cushioning yourself against the anticipated shocks, this article suggests for you some small changes you can make in your daily life to save money and ease the burden of this crisis. One area that you can make a big impact on is your cooking gas usage.
First, check for leaks in your gas supply and fix them immediately. Leaks can be the cause of significant gas wastage, and fixing them can save you money on your gas bill.
Next, use the right size pot for your burner. If your pot is too small, it will heat up quickly and use more gas, but if it's too big, it will take longer to heat up and also use more gas. And remember, always use a lid when cooking. This will help trap the heat and cook your food faster, saving you gas.
Adjusting the flame on your stove is also important. A flame that's too high will use more gas than necessary, while a flame that's too low will take longer to cook your food.
Cooking in bulk can also save you gas and time. Instead of cooking multiple batches, try to do it all at once. This way, you're using the same amount of gas but cooking more food.
Additionally, it's important to avoid overcooking food. Overcooking not only wastes gas but also ruins the taste and nutritional value of your food.
And here's a tip that might just change your life, invest in a pressure cooker. They use less gas than traditional cooking methods and can help cook food faster. Therefore, if you have a few coins remaining, find yourself a pressure cooker today. It may just be the best decision this year.
In the expected tough times, every coin counts. By being mindful of your cooking gas usage, checking for leaks, avoiding overcooking food and making small changes, you can help ease the burden of the financial crisis and secure a better future for yourself and your family. So, take a step today, and make a difference in your life and in the country's economy.
