Several years ago, I was making mistakes with my money that wound up costing me more than a pretty penny. In fact, my blunders cost me three million pretty pennies each year. I cut the frivolities and now live a fruitful, frugal life and it's all thanks to 10 uncommonly common sense solutions.
I nixed the frivolous purchases.
I had a Starbucks habit and I was a heavy impulse buyer. I spent $5 a day on coffee and an additional $1 or $2 a day on candy, granola bars or other at-the-register purchases. Then, I did the math. I started bringing my coffee from home and I gave up making those little, everyday buys. Now, I pocket $2,000 a year.
