3. Avoid Eating Out
We all love eating out, but spending money in restaurants or dining at some fancy place can really cost you an arm and a leg. Aside from that, going to work and buying lunch each time it’s a lunch break can deprive your savings.
Instead, think about preparing and packing your lunch at home and bringing it to work. Developing long-term habits, such as taking your own food to work, is one of the secrets to saving money.
If you’re worried about running out of time, prepare something on Sunday and store it in separate Tupperware containers. Try to prepare it for Monday at least, but as you get used to it you can prepare meals three days ahead. Begin this week, and you may easily save $100 over the course of a month.
