MANILA, Philippines — It’s that time of the year again where it’s nice and cold enough to cozy up indoors or skip chores. Everyone can huddle up with loved ones under thick blankets while watching favorite movies or TV shows.

The monsoon season, which usually starts in June, can easily last until November or later in the year. So it would do Filipino families good to prepare what they need as daily weather could be unpredictable during this time. This also proves advantageous in terms of budgeting as incoming expenses can be planned.

Here are some helpful tips to keep in mind:

1. Stock up on essential supplies

We all know how temperamental the rainy season could be. One day we’re getting a relaxing pitter-patter of rain outside, and the next we’re getting torrential downpour.

Because of this, it’s always a good measure to be fully stocked at home, so you don’t have to face the inconvenience of needing to go to the store when it’s raining hard because you’re fresh out of groceries.

Make sure to stock up on tried-and-tested fam favorites, especially for the kids.

This means, apart from the usual supply, have ingredients ready for when the day calls for champorado, arroz caldo, sopas, and the like. Hot cocoa or tablea is also a highly recommended addition.

2. Invest in home products, appliances

 

During this time, being able to do everything you need to do at home with ease is a convenience you wouldn’t want to replace with anything.

In able to achieve this, investing in high-quality home appliances and other gadgets is crucial.

This can be a washer and dryer so you can do loads of laundry at once; a home entertainment setup that lets you enjoy your favorite media for whatever mood or occasion; or a good ol’ oven for whipping up pastries, snacks and other warm dishes for the kids, among others.

3. Take advantage of rainy day promos

It’s not only rains that come pouring this time of year. The rainy season also bring with it lots and lots of promos from your favorite stores, so you better be on the lookout.
