The financial lessons that quarantine has taught people will not be forgotten any time soon. Many people were not used to saving anything from their salary. There was always the promise of getting money after every four weeks. Now with staying at home, that promise is not sure. The very idea that the job one has is permanent has been removed from people’s minds.
Food is eaten economically. Left overs do not see the inside of a dustbin as they are made into meals. Ladies have learnt how to make their own hair at home. Beauty has taken a back seat as that money is used for contingency purposes. Now people know the meaning of wants and needs. The items that are especially important are food and shelter. For all the other items, there is always the question of whether it is really necessary to acquire them.
