I'm going to scream

Just wanted to warn you ahead of time. Because the next time I read that I could save hundreds of dollars a year by cutting out Starbucks, manicures, and cable, I'm going to scream. Are people really so stupid that they can't figure that out themselves? That a latte and muffin picked up on the way to work is probably $8/day (including tax and tip). Going out to lunch another $6 (if you're lucky). That adds up to $70/week, which is way more than I spend on groceries for two for a week. As for the manicures, never had one. As for cable, never had it. How about some tips for those of us who already scrimp and save?

Yeah, that is LAME advice!
People that have/do all that stuff already have made the decision whether or not to cut it out, or which *addictions* they "can't" live without.
It's like telling people that fatty foods are fattening. DUH! Ya think?

Oh and did you know that Christmas lights are for outdoor and indoor use only? ;)

I know -- I can't stand this! I hate when I read articles that promise "You can save $2,000 a Year" or the like. And, then it's all things like skipping Starbucks and other things we don't do anyway.
