Would you give up your daily coffee (or tea) order to save for your pets? Well, according to a survey of over 1,000 people by the American Kennel Club, 96 percent of respondents would give up a latte habit to save for their dog's expenses. Hmm, while there are many things I'd do for my furry pal, I'm gonna have to stick with my coffee – North wouldn't want to hear the uncaffeinated grumbling I'd do on his morning walk without it!

With the current state of the economy, I'm definitely trying to save in some areas like fancy manicures or eating out, and can think of several other ways to pinch pennies. Also polled as choices were hair appointments, spa treatments, home remodeling, travel plans, Internet access, shopping, teeth whitening, gym membership, and new cars or other big purchases. Which of these (or other things), would be the hardest for you to live without?
