10 Easiest Ways to Manage Your Household Expenses
If we got a dollar for every time, we said, “I’m going to start saving from tomorrow,” we’d have quite the dough. But usually, it feels like there’s just nothing you can cut down more on.
So we went looking for answers from a wider audience. Ranker’s poll on easy to cut off expenses has revealed these ten spots that really do seem practical if you want to get on track with your budget.

You never seem to win, but you still keep buying. Maybe if you consider putting that dollar in a till it’ll finally be worthwhile.
Every time you use an external bank’s ATM, you’re paying an average $4.69 fee. Considering how often we pop that card in the machine, that’s a considerable cost for nothing. So make sure it’s your bank’s ATM. And let’s not forget that debit card purchases are easier.
It seems like no one has a good old cuppa joe at home anymore. Cut the expensive hard-to-pronounce brews from your daily budget, and you’ll see how much you’ve been spending on coffee alone.
When did buying cancer become cool? If you honestly don’t care about the health implications, think of the cost. On an average, a person (the one who smokes obviously) will spend $1 million on cigarettes over a lifetime! So it seems like it really is time to quit.
