#3. Make Every Purchase Count

Unfortunately, when a recession halts the economy it doesn’t mean our bills stop with it.

That’s why making every purchase count is important. And I’m not talking about only buying the bare necessities, I’m talking about earning points for every purchase you make using the app Drop.

Here’s how it works: every time you swipe your debit card you’ll be awarded points via the app (1,000 points = $1). So think about all the times you buy gas, basic necessities, groceries, or even treat-yo-self items. Those purchases can count towards points you can exchange for cash or gift cards.

Using an app like Drop is a good way to add a little extra mileage to your budget. Drop is available for both iPhone and Android.
