A budget-friendly way to #spendsmall & support your local small business

Has anyone asked you how they can best support your small business right now? I loved this recent Instagram post from Sydney journalist Alexandra Carlton. She shares a simple and super effective approach to supporting her own small business community, while she’s on a budget.


At times like these it can be easy to think we have to hoard our resources, but as Alex so simply puts it, even a one or two purchase a week can make a difference when you spend mindfully.

There’s never been a better time to remind friends, family and your local community how they can support you.

Pass it on!
