Savvy Savings Challenge: No Lattes Equals 20 Dollars

This update was shared by member Lauren, who is participating in our Savvy Savings Challenge and has vowed to give up her expensive latte habit.

In the afternoon, I love a warm latte to get through the rest of the day, but at $2.85 a pop it can get a little pricey. So, I am giving it up for the next forty days. Week one was tough but I did it! In the afternoons when I was craving another hot cup of joe, I went for a quick walk outside for fresh air and once back at my desk made a lovely cup of green tea. Do I miss my lattes, yes but now I have an extra $20. If I keep it up for all forty days, I am going to treat myself to something nice, maybe a new pair of shoes! They will last longer than a latte!

Cheer on the savers in comments and jump on our budget- and mood-boosting effort and cut your most harmful and indulgent habits for the next 40 days! Join the Savvy Savings Challenge and share what you plan, then update the group with your pitfalls and success stories. The community and I will be your personal finance trainers!
