Heading out for necessities? (And the occasional leisure? 👀)

Personally – and ideally – I would like to stay indoors for as long as the pandemic persists, but the reality is that I have to go out from time to time. Not all of our needs can be bought online or are necessarily affordable, especially when stocking up the pantry. I also give in to invites to socially distanced gala with friends, simply because I’m a social creature who’s already yearning for some physical interaction.

Still, it‘s a must to keep ourselves safe and ready no matter what quarantine classification or alert level we are in. Trips and chores should be planned carefully, not only for our health but also for our finite budgets. 😭

Want a trick? There are lots of e-vouchers we can buy to help save on in-store spending, such as fast food chains, grocery stores, and coffee shops. These are typically bought at an amount lower than their intended value (the best part!), and you’ll just present the e-voucher’s code at the redeeming store as your mode of payment.

You might want to start strategizing your next essentials run or quick meet-up by considering these:

Res Toe Run P1,000 e-voucher
