1

Shrink Your Coffee Orders

 
 

Just because you need that cup of joe each morning to wake up doesn't mean you need a cup the size of a Louisiana pothole! Scale down your order each time and you'll be surprised how much you'll amass. Better yet, buy fewer of those delicious but super-expensive coffee drinks.

 
2

Cut Out Bad Habits

 
 

Not that the promise of eating good food in nice restaurants should be the main motivator for kicking a bad habit, just think about how much money you'll save each month -- or even each week -- by not buying that pack of cigarettes or six-pack of beer.

 
3

Create a Budget

 
 

Nobody likes math. OK, maybe that's a bit harsh. But nobody likes having to be reminded of how much money they actually have. It may not be fun, but keeping track of your finances will help you see where you're overspending and possibly help ensure you have some extra cash to spend on a nice meal at your favorite restaurant.

 
4

Use Coupons

 
 

Coupons are cool! OK, maybe that's an exaggeration. But shopping with a 'save money' mindset will ensure you're not overspending at the grocery store, which means more money to spend on food you have zero chance of burning on the stove!

 
5

Shop Online

 
 

There are dozens of relatively inexpensive online stores that offer discounted prices on everything from home goods to electronics to clothing. Save money by using one of these cyber options instead of a big-name brick-and-mortar shop.
