With a few very small changes in your daily habits you can save $100.00 or more every week. We all are some what creatures of habit from the time we get out of bed in the morning until we get back in bed at night.
………………………………………………………………………..Daily Cost…Weekly
Fast service Breakfast off dollar menu 1.00 + soda or coffee …$ 2.20 …$11.00
1-soda daily ……………………………………………………………..$ 1.20 …$ 9.25
1-donut-brand muffin or large cookie ………………………………$ 1.79 …$ 8.95
1-house brand coffee-star bucks cost up to $5.00 a cup ………$ 1.50 …$ 7.50
1-bottle water ……………………………………………………………$ 1.40 …$ 9.80
1-fast service lunch …………………………………………………….$ 4.75 …$23.73
1-dinning out 1 time a week ………………………………………….$15.00 …$15.00
1-family bag of potato or corn chips per week……………………..$ 5.00 …$ 5.00

How does this work?
1. Reduce soda consumption by at least 1 bottle/can of soda everyday.
2. Make coffee at home, it cost about $0.10 cents a cup.
–don’t buy bottled tea, you can brew tea at home for about 10 cents a cup.
–don’t buy fruit drink, if you must have it, buy 100% pure fruit juice.
3. Bake your own muffins or cookies. Use a low or no sugar recipe.
–add berries or fresh fruit for added sweetness and flavor to your muffins.
4. Drink tap water in a bottle you provide.
–100% pure water, 100% safe. Cost less than 1 cent per bottle.
5. Brown bag, fix and take your lunch with you.
–make a salad and fruit, lunch out only once a week, be careful and not over use salad dressing.
6. Don’t spend money dinning out more that once a month.
–don’t order in pizza and similar expensive – high calories foods.
7. Strike potato and corn chips off your shopping list.
–after a few weeks you will adjust and will not miss having them.

Not only will you save a lot of money you will cut hundreds of fat calories from your diet.
Keeping the math simple, you can easily save $85 to $95 dollars a week with a very few changes to your daily habits.

Extending these saving to a family of 2, [$92.00 week each] X 2 = $185.00 savings for two people per week and a huge $740.00 a month or over $8,880.00 a year. Getting your children involved will give you even larger weekly savings. Think about what you could do with 8 or 10 thousand dollars next Christmas.

  1. Using our garden, avoiding junk food and never wasting food means our food budget for 4 people stays around $600/month. Good post. We should all practice this – if only to eat healthier.
