Save a little more this year by cutting out things you don't need now! Make your coffee at home, bring your own lunch, skip name brands and add it all to a holiday slush fund.
How much do you spend on coffee and lunches each week? How much can you save if you stop buying a few of these "treats" for the next three months?

Normally I'll eat out about 2-3 times a week (if that) which normally costs about 7/day ($21/week). If I started bringing my lunch and breakfast and kept snacks at my desk, then I could save $252 in 3 months (roughly).

I get a coffee maybe 2-3 x a week. They are 2.00 each because I have a card to the local coffee store. I want to cut down to one coffee a week. We also want to cut back on going out for lunch, we do it twice a week.

I always make my coffee at home and work. I bring my own lunch as well. It doesn't help that I work at a secure mill, and we're not allowed to leave for lunch. We're trying to quit smoking and we're down to less than half a pack a day, so that is our major cut back. I'm looking into what we spend to see what else we can cut back on, but there really isn't anything that we treat ourselves too.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but with better menu planning could save from buying my lunch at work 1 -3 times a month.

I don't drink coffee

We already do that. I could cut back on the bottles of drinks i buy. I usually get a bottle of vitamin water at work.
