Eliminate One Expense

Right now you spend money on something you don't use, don't need, or don't want. But since you buy it... you feel you have to use it. I subscribed to a number of magazines… but then I have to read them since if I don't sit there and make me feel guilty. So I dropped three or four. I don't miss them. Pick one expense you can eliminate that will also free up time and effort. Often the biggest savings in cutting an expense isn't the actual cost; it's the time involved in doing or maintaining or consuming whatever the expense represents.
