9 Ways To Survive Being Broke

It's not easy to make money and keep it, and in your early twenties, when you're working for lower salaries and paying off college debts...net worth can be non-existent. Have no fear, because there are a few ways you can survive being broke, and even have a little fun too.

1. Get a mobile banking app

Okay, this may seem like a nightmare, but always knowing how much money you have will come in handy It'll save you those inevitable, embarrassing "I'm sorry your card was declined" conversations, and it'll make you more aware of your current money situation.

2. Calculate how much you can spend per/day to stay above water.

For instance:
If I have 400 dollars in my bank account (after transportation, utilities, rent etc...) for living expenses to last three weeks, divide 400 by 14 to get 19.4, which means, by averaging things out you have around 20 dollars/day to spend before you run out of money.
It's bringing consciousness to your spending, and can help when things get really tight.

3. When at the grocery store, never buy name brand anything.

This is an extreme tactic, but it will cut your grocery bill by at least 20 dollars, just because you're going generic. Things like peanut butter, bread and juice can be spared. If you can't tell the difference, why not save the money?
You can splurge for things you really love, but if you can ditch the name brand stuff, your wallet will thank you.

4. Challenge yourself to not to spend money at all.

I did this for a while in college and it ended up saving me a lot! When things got tight, I'd give myself a little tally mark in my agenda for every day I didn't spend any money. It helps with progress and gives you a physical track to follow your habits.
If you haven't guessed, lots of these tips are just based on consciousness of how much money you actually have.

5. Know when things are priced at their lowest, and NEVER pay full price for anything.

You can google what stores put what things on sale, and when. So when you plan a big shopping trip where you have to buy an entire wardrobe for like...200 dollars, check out where you are going, and when the big sales are.
If you get suckered into paying full price for something while you're feeling a little more wealthy, you'll pay for it later if you're broke, so always be conscious of if a purchase is realistically in your budget.

6. Avoid credit cards like the plague.

If you're broke, applying for a credit card will be tempting, I'm sure you're like "Oh! They gave me a 500 dollar limit? I'll just make my purchases with that, and worry about it later."

Don't.

You'll end up paying 3 times as much because you'll run them up and never pay them. If you're broke, you don't have enough money to deal with fees and hassles, so just save yoruself the trouble and tough it out.

7. Evaluate what you really need, and what you can live without.

Do you really need Starbucks today? Do you really need that candy bar?
We make innocuous purchases that end up seeming pretty useless after we're left without enough money to live off of. If we calculate one 5 dollar cup of coffee per every work day (or god for bid two), we end up spending 25 dollars / week ON COFFEE ALONE.
That's a lot!
So just by putting things into perspective, you can really start to save yourself money, and also survive!

8. Happy Hour Only

Buying drinks adds up. You can spend 50 or more in one sitting without realizing it. In order to avoid this, hit up a happy hour, where things are half priced. If that's not in the works, then you definitely need to buy your own alcohol, and drink at home before going out. Or...stop drinking and just save the money.
It's not as fun, but being broke never is!

9. Long term: figure out what your money habits are, where you fail at saving, and put better choices in motion to conserve for the future!

We don't always keep track of our money, spend it wisely or have the jobs to support the lifestyles we want, but with a little consciousness, some faith and some discipline we can put the steps into place to get better at the money thing!
Also, remember, money isn't everything. You can have fun for free doing lots of things, so look up free events in your city and have a ball. Keeping it together is all about perspective.

What is the difference between state solar subsidy scheme and national portal solar subsidy?
With the increasing electricity demand comes the problem of insufficient resources to support such usage. This can be especially difficult for low-income families who battle paying high electricity bills every month for basic household needs. To help ease this burden, the government has suggested solar energy as a renewable and more affordable option for electrical power. The growth of solar rooftops in India has been tremendous over the last few years. Residential rooftop solar accounts for roughly 20% of the overall rooftop mark. Residential installations have seen steady growth in the previous few years and have grown by 35% over the last year. The availability of subsidies and increased awareness of solar and its benefit is the primary catalyst for the growth of this sector This blog looks at the different subsidies available to you. Solar subsidies can improve affordability by reducing the cost of installing solar panels. If you’re thinking about installing solar panels, make sure to check out the different offerings that are available to you. State Solar Subsidy: The subsidy is available only for residential solar grid-connected systems (without batteries).  Commercial or industrial sectors are not eligible to avail of this scheme. Each DISCOM has benchmarked the rates at which solar companies can sell solar systems. The amount of subsidy available varies between 20-40% and depends on the system size. Details of the support are as below. System Capacity (kW) Solar Subsidy (in %) Up to 3kW 40% Above 3kW and Up to 10kW 40% up to 3kW 20% thereafter National Portal Solar Subsidy: Under the national portal solar subsidy scheme, the government offers a fixed subsidy depending on the system size you wish to install. The detail of the subsidy is as mentioned below. Solar System Capacity Applicable Subsidy Up to 3kW ₹14,588 per kW Above 3kW and up to 10kW ₹14,588 per kW up to 3kW ₹7,294 per kW thereafter 10kW and above ₹94,822 fixed amount irrespective of system size How to apply online for national portal solar subsidy: Step 1: Download Sandes App & Register Step 2: Login and apply for the Rooftop Solar as per the form Step 3: Wait for the feasibility approval from DISCOM. Once you get the feasibility approval to install the system from any of the registered vendors in your DISCOM Step 4: Once installation is over, submit the plant details and apply for a net meter Step 5: After installation of the net meter and inspection by DISCOM, they will generate a commissioning certificate from the portal Step 6: Once you get the commissioning report submit bank account details and a canceled cheque through the portal. The subsidy will come to your account within 30 working days Difference between the national subsidy scheme & State scheme Under State Scheme, the customer pays only the post-subsidy price to the solar company (Total Price — Subsidy amount). The solar company claims the subsidy amount from the government post-installation. In National Portal Scheme, customers apply for solar subsidies through National Portal. The subsidy amount is transferred to their bank account within 30 days of solar system commissioning. The customer will initially pay the entire amount to the solar company. Adopting solar energy for your home does not have to be a complicated process — Freyr Energy is here to help make it as easy as possible. We take care of all necessary documentation and approval processes, whether central or state subsidy. We hope it has been a worthwhile read, and if you have any other questions or concerns about state and national solar subsidies, please get in touch with us anytime at sales@freyrenergy.com.

Cooling Fabrics Market Leaders & Key Revenue Pockets
The global cooling fabrics market size in 2020 is estimated to be USD 2.0 billion and projected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 6.0% during the forecast period. Growth in this market is attributed mainly to the increasing demand for cooling fabrics in sports apparel, lifestyle, and protective wearing. Cooling fabrics lowers the body temperature of the wearer when the wearer gets sweaty. Cooling fabrics generally have the property to adapt to the environmental conditions and regulate the temperature of the body by managing heat and moisture. These fabrics distribute the body heat and cool the body by evaporating sweat.

These fabrics distribute the body heat and cool the body by evaporating sweat. The fibers used to make cooling fabrics can pull the sweat and moisture very quickly from the skin and extend the wet area of the surface as much as possible. Based on type, the cooling fabrics market has been segmented into synthetic and natural fabrics. Synthetic cooling fabrics market accounts for a larger market share owing to better moisture-wicking properties and provides an enhanced cooling effect to the wearer compared to natural cooling fabrics. Synthetic fabrics have other qualities such as excellent strength, endurance, high elasticity, and smooth texture, which are sometimes not achievable with natural fabrics. Based on textile type, knitted cooling fabrics are expected to account for the largest share of the cooling fabrics market in 2020. Knitted textiles have a high degree of elasticity due to the looseness of the fabric yarn when compared to woven fabrics. The knitted fabrics are more comfortable to the wearer due to its properties, such as better breathability and fit the shape of the body in the best possible way. Due to this, knitted fabrics are used for manufacturing sports apparel, which triggers the demand for knitted cooling fabrics during the forecast period. The sports apparel application segment is anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing use of cooling fabrics while performing sports activities without hampering the performance of the wearer. The cooling fabrics increase the skin breathability of the wearer by letting the heat escape from the body, providing a cool and comfortable feel. The North America cooling fabrics market is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2020 and 2025. Growth in the North America cooling fabrics market is attributed primarily to advancement in technology and the presence of a wide range of end-use application markets. Further, increasing awareness towards health & wellness, rising sports & leisure activities, and lifestyle changes have also contributed to the growth of the cooling fabrics market in North America.
