1. Get a better cell phone plan
The average customer only uses 1.58 gigs of data a month, save $360 a year by switching over to a cheaper data plan.
2. Quit the gym, you don’t use it anyway
If you’re not pumping as much iron as you thought, you could save around $660 a year by just canceling your membership
3. Drink slightly less coffee
If you’re part of the 54% of Americans who drink coffee everyday, cut it out a few days a week. You’re dropping close to $712 a year on a medium cup of Starbucks. Cutting out 2 cups a week is the equivalent to roughly $200!
4. Eat out less
Americans spend around $218 a month on eating out at restaurants. You can save up to $2,620 a year if you cut down how often you eat out.
5. If you want to read, just go to the library
Believe it or not, the average American still spends around $118 a year on books. Borrowing books from the library can definitely free up some cash — plus most libraries also carry new and old DVDs as well!
6. Get a good toilet
Toilet consists of almost 27% of all your water usage. Older toilets can use close to 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush, and leaky toilets can waste up to 200 gallons of water a day. Fixing or replacing an older toilet can save a family of four up to $2,000!
