Over the weekend, “social demographer” Bernard Salt had a go at millennials, most notably being rather affronted that so many of them waste money on brunch. Instagram: eatdrinkplaybris / Via Instagram: @eatdrinkplaybris "I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop and more," Salt wrote. "Shouldn’t they be economising by eating at home? How often are they eating out? Twenty-two dollars several times a week could go towards a deposit on a house." You may be surprised to know, however, that having the nerve to pay $22 for breakfast is the least of millennials' worries. Here's another 17 things they could cut back on: 1. Double shot, cold-drip coffees, with a splash of almond milk. Instagram: @rexcat75 / Via instagram.com Millennials love their coffee, and the more expensive the better! If they cut back and start drinking Nescafé, they'll easily have a house by the end of the month! 2. Those hip Yeezy sneakers. View this photo on Instagram instagram.com So snazzy! But do you know what's snazzier? Having a house! 3. Sparkling water. Instagram: doenjangnam / Via instagram.com Millennials don't know you can actually get water for FREE from the tap. Imagine all the coin they'll save now! 4. Organic "poshcorn". Instagram: @elliwil / Via instagram.com Did you know that many baby boomers lived in a time before "poshcorn" was a thing? It's probably why they have so many bedrooms. 5. Gym memberships. Bravo Buy a house with a gym in it! Easy! 6. Sausage sandwiches at Bunnings on Saturdays.

If they save $30 a week for a WHOLE year, they'll have $1,560! That could buy anyone a small piece of grass on Sydney's north shore! 8. Hipster meals.

The sunglasses you can see your reflection in. View this photo on Instagram instagram.com Millennials will always find an excuse to look at themselves! Forget the sunnies – if they had their own house with their own mirrors, they could look at themselves all the damn time. 13. Cold-pressed juices.

Instagram: @halibird_ / Via instagram.com I solemnly swear that if millennials stop buying novelty mugs, they'll save some money and pay off a mortgage. 15. Healthcare. Nickelodeon Unnecessary! 16. Look, really, while we're at it, millennials don't need shoes and clothes. Nickelodeon Back in my day, you made do with what you had, often hand-me-downs from your siblings. Try that. 17. In fact, they should look into even selling something of theirs, like a kidney.
