According to the European Barometer by Cetelem (the commercial brand of the BNP Paribas Personal Finance group), cited by Notícias ao Minuto, the Portuguese are now more attentive to their budget, avoiding food waste.

Ninety percent of Portuguese people already avoid wasting food to save money on their monthly budget.

"Portuguese people also indicate being more attentive to the food budget (84%) and avoiding food waste (90%). When shopping, 91% of respondents say they are taking advantage of promotions and special offers more and opting to buy cheaper brands (83%)," the news article reads.

In addition, 66% of Portuguese also indicate that food expenses have increased, advancing with a change in habits and consumption behavior.

"30% had to limit or even give up expenses on food products due to lack of financial means. 44% also claim to have given up certain products, such as meat or fish, and buy fewer 'environmentally friendly' products (46%), such as organic products. 29% even reveal that they have started to eat less," the publication also states.

If you are looking to save money, why not, if you have financing, look at your credit portfolio? There are several solutions that you can consider to pay lower installments:

  • Renegotiate your credits with the bank to access more favorable conditions;  
  • Transfer your credits to different banks, with a different interest rate regime, for example (switching from a variable rate associated with Euribor, to a fixed or mixed rate); 
  • Merge multiple credits into a consolidated credit for a single installment with lower rates.
