31 Days and 31 Ways to Save: Day4-Cut the Treat Factor

One of the ways I have saved each week that works for me is that I have cut the snack factor.

I am no longer buying my caffeine on the fly. There is no standing in line, there is no visits to the the vending machine.

If you love coffee make it at home before you leave and invest in a good mug that keeps it warm as you travel, for a transit commuter it is a perfect pick me up for that trip in without the wait and you are saving money.

As well anyone who knows me I love my Coke, so instead of a jaunt to the local mini market buy a case when you are shopping. Take one with you. Again no lines and you spent .35 cents vs 1.00.

As well do you get the munchies at work? Crave that salt or sugar? Pack yourself a snack, avoid the vending machine.

By cutting the snack factor you can save yourself over $1,000 a year- for me that works.

Now I am off to We are THAT Family who hosts a weekly round up of what is working for families. I always learn more ways to save by reading the great posts there. What tip helps you save the most?
