Just because you’ve decided to live frugally doesn’t mean you have to give up all of the luxuries you enjoy. Daily coffee runs, eating out, beauty salon visits, and watching movies are still within your budget as long as you follow these simple tips:
Change Your Coffee Order
Anyone who is watching what they spend is probably aware of how costly that daily stop at the coffee shop can be. A convenient, tasty, warm and cozy treat; coffee can be a difficult habit to give up. Swapping out what you’re ordering for much cheaper versions will pleasantly surprise your taste buds and your wallet. For instance, if you love Lattes, try a plain cup of coffee but request cream. Better yet, request they leave room for cream and doctor it up yourself to the consistency you like. Many coffee shops also provide flavored creams, sugars, and spices that you can add in to your cup free of charge. For a third of the price you’ll enjoy a hot brew that is equally delicious.
