O dollar soaring, with an appreciation of more than 10% in 2024, and rising inflation are putting pressure on the pocket of the Brazilian consumer. This relentless combination requires strategic measures to avoid skyrocketing prices. But don't worry, there's no need to panic!

Fuel, food, technology and health items: everything is more expensive. The guilt? According to experts, this is partly due to the appreciation of the dollar, which makes imported products more expensive and impacts national production.

How to protect yourself from rising inflation

However, it's not all bad news. This happens because, with intelligence and planning, it is possible to minimize the impact of inflation on your budget.

Check out some tips on how to protect yourself from high inflation:

Attack attacks once and for all: Wholesale supermarkets, with their full shelves, generally offer lower prices. Take advantage of promotions and shop to stock your pantry for longer.

Master the art of strategic inventory: Non-perishable products, such as rice, beans and oil, can be your allies against inflation. Buy in larger quantities and avoid unpleasant surprises month after month.

Choose the right day to attack: Prices may vary throughout the month. Avoid the temptation to shop right after receiving your salary. Research and compare: in most cases, half the month is more advantageous.

Research is power: before placing the product in the cart, do a price search online and in person. Compare prices and write everything down in one easy-to-access place. This comparison will give you a complete picture and help you make smart decisions.

Say no to waste: planning meals and avoiding waste are simple measures, but they make a difference at the end of the month.

Remember: organization and planning are your weapons against inflation. Use them wisely and see how your pocket will thank you!

Ways to save

In addition to tips on how to protect yourself from high inflation, there are ways to save even with the phenomenon and also the rise in the dollar.

These tips include, for example, planning your purchases, making a list of what you need and comparing prices before buying, opting for generic brands, which are often as good as branded ones, but cost much less, and also:

Cooking at home: Eating out is expensive. Learn how to cook tasty and nutritious dishes at home.

Take advantage of promotions: Keep an eye on promotions in supermarkets and stores.

Negotiate: Don't be afraid to negotiate prices, especially in street stores and open-air markets.

With these tips, you will be able to overcome the rise in the dollar and inflation and keep your budget under control. But so, do you believe that Brazil will be able to quickly overcome this economic crisis? Leave your opinion in the comments.
