Debi's Daily Dollar Idea: Cut out the Fat

I don't like extra fat on my meat, and that got me thinking if there are ways I can trim the "fat" from my expenses.  You might also consider if there are things/expenses you could trim away that would hardly be noticed.  For example, if you have a magazine subscription, is it a magazine you could do without?  Or could you just as easily read it at the library for free?  When you go out to eat, could you drink water instead of ordering a soft drink?  Could you watch a movie without buying popcorn?  How about refilling your own water bottle to avoid purchasing bottled water.

This week focus on seeing how much fat you can trim away from your budget, without giving up the standard of living you've been accustomed to.  I'd love to hear how you do!
