Financial responsibility demands fiscal discipline, which requires learning to cut out unnecessary extravagances from everyday life to save money. Some common items that people often spend far too much money on include coffee drinks purchased outside the home rather than made at home, fees from unused or underused gym memberships, expensive work lunches, overdue fees from various sources, designer household products, expensive bar drinks, clothing that is not durably made and that will quickly fall out of style, and unnecessary costs related to transportation. By cutting down on these bad financial habits or replacing them with cheaper, more economic alternatives, individuals can save thousands of dollars every year.
