One of the major themes of lockdown has been a 'back to basics' approach to living, with hobbies such as home baking, gardening and knitting soaring in popularity.
However, with the economy suffering a severe blow, a 'back to basics' approach to our personal finances has also become a key theme, with many looking to pare down their spending.
Lessons from lockdown
Lockdown has taught many people how fragile their financial situation really is. Without their income or savings to fall back on, families have suddenly found themselves on the breadline.
Lockdown has also highlighted the importance of protection products to keep you going financially if you can't work. Life, critical illness or income protection insurance could all prove a lifeline if the worst were to happen.
Another way of protecting yourself is having savings put by as a buffer against financial fragility. While low interest rates are currently impacting savers, there are good deals to be found - and valuable peace of mind to be gained.
