We’re talking about to save money today on the Ilyce Glink show.

What are the biggest cash burners in a budget? According to BankRate.com, here are the top 10 ways we waste money:

  1. Daily coffee habit. The average person spends $1.36 per cup or $360 per year. Want to shave that cost? Make and bring your own or make tea instead. (You can brew a cup of tea for about 3 cents each.

  2. Cigarettes

  3. Alcohol

  4. Bottled water

  5. Manicures

  6. Car washes

  7. Weekday lunch out (The estimated cost for this is about $9 each. Brown bag it for as little as $1.50 per day – or less)

  8. Vending machine snacks

  9. Credit card interest

  10. Unused memberships (for workout clubs, buying clubs, vacation clubs, etc.)

We’ll have ways to save on each of these — plus how to save even more money at the grocery store on today’s Ilyce Glink show.
