Life Pro Tips: Try to spend $0.00, twice a week.

#lifeprotips Here’s a simple tip for saving money, just don’t spend it!  Whether you’re a student or have a full-time job, it’s easy to get caught up in buying that morning cup of coffee or eating out over lunch.  Let’s look how these habits can add up:

Coffee 5 days * $4.00 * 52 weeks = Roughly $1,040/year on coffee.
Coffee 3 days * $4.00 * 52 weeks = Roughly $624/year on coffee saving you $416!

Lunch 5 days * $8.00 * 52 weeks =  Roughly $2,080/year on lunch.
Lunch 3 days * $8.00 * 52 weeks = Roughly $1,248/year on lunchs saving you $832.00!

The thought of cleaning out our coffee machine or prepping sandwiches doesn’t scream, “fun”.  Get into the swing of it slowly and you’ll be saving money in no time.

And a general public service announcement, please do not bring leftover fish (of any kind) and heat it up in the breakroom microwave.  Your colleagues will appreciate you.
