c) Buy canned soda on sale at the grocery store this weekend. This is sort of unrelated to the original problem, but still an area I can cut out spending $$$. I frequent the soda machine at work quite often, and I spend a fairly sizeable chunk of my $80 per payday cash allotment on those machines.

Or just cut out that crap and drink water.

<ignoring tactless remark>

At this time, I am not particularly interested in giving up drinking soda entirely. I drink quite a lot of water, and the only time I have soda is when I'm at work or sometimes when I go out to dinner. I do not keep the stuff at home, which means that I consumer very little caffeine after 5-6 PM and on weekends.

</ignoring tactless remark>

Ogrecat, if you genuinely want to help someone by suggesting that they cut out consuming something in order to save money and be healthier, perhaps you should take a gentler approach. On the other hand, if you are just trying to be a jerk, perhaps you should go post over on NADA or PA or something.
