When it comes to the little stuff like taking lunch to work instead of buying it, or not going to SBUX every morning I like to take a balanced approach. I'll try to avoid those money sinks, but if I'm tired of PB&J sandwiches I'll go out for lunch a time or two/week.

I often took leftovers or a can of soup. It doesn't always have to be sandwiches.

Agreed, the big ticket items are huge blips, but a lot of people let that ten to fifteen dollars a day slip through their fingers without being aware of how much money they're losing.

There used to be a posted on the boards named TamarianG, and she didn't getting out of debt until she started paying attention to the little expenses she had ignored. That's when she started seeing the waste.
