Keep on watching your discretionary expenses

We all have learned a great from this recession, and we want to save up a little money and not want to spend for something that is unnecessary. Have you thought about is there anything you can live without? I bet you that you can come up 10 to more than 20 of them. For me, I stop buying coffee in the morning when I pass through Dunkin Donut or McDonald. I would rather bring my own coffee or get the coffee from my work. That might save a little bit of $1.50 per day. It might not sound so much for just a day, but when you add up within a month or year, it might amazed you how much you wasted. Also, I don't have to shop at the mall, instead, I can shop at the thrift store. It is a matter of how you match your clothes, and you still look good. Can you come up any discretionary expenses you can live without too?
