One way to cut spending quickly is to quit eating lunch out with your co-workers or friends. It's fun to go out with them for an hour and shoot the breeze, but even once a week can rob your budget of $50 a month or more!
Be creative about lunch time and you can still enjoy the company without breaking the bank. Have everyone bring their lunch and meet outside for a picnic or do a mini-potluck where you each bring something baked from home to share. :)
