    I’m trying to save some money in 2014, so I’m going to try this. I’ve never been good with saving money, I’m going to pay off my credit card debt too. Thank you so much for posting!

    I don’t even make $20,000 a year. I’ve never had a gym membership (waste of money), cable, don’t eat lunch (we don’t get lunch breaks and I never have time to take 10 minutes to shove food down my throat), we eat out like once a month because of coupons, etc. There are people that do all those things and need help, but there’s more people who don’t make near $20,000 a year or even do most of what’s listed to begin with to save that kind of money. Something a little more realistic and down to earth would help and inspire people more. Thanks for the effort though.

      Agreed. I already don’t spend money on most of these things – hell, I don’t spend $54.79 a day as it is, aside from rent and bills!

      Some tips that could apply to more people (getting a roommate, living unconventionally like in an RV, suggestions for flexible side hustles, etc.) was what I hoped for.

      Still, some of these really are good even for people already on a budget, because they just haven’t thought of it before. I only recently started trimming my own hair after seeing a tutorial; I hadn’t tried until then because I just didn’t know how. The less detergent thing is good, too. Less anything, really. You get stuff just as clean with surprisingly little.

      Cable is big one people don’t think about. I pay for a basic internet package because I work from home, and between Netflix and free apps like FoxNow I don’t miss cable at all. It saves about $700 a year where I live.

      I also handwash and line-dry my clothes (and my kids’), which is a pain in the ass – and I’m not doing it by choice, trust me – but it saves at least $200 a year. Not bad, but again…no other option here, haha.

      Anyway. It’s a good post…just not helpful for me, personally. Perfect for people just started to budget and examine their needs vs. wants, though.
