Penny Pinching Ideas

I caught a Good Morning America segment this past week on saving money during tough times. The top suggestions -

Smoking. No butts about it. At about $5 a pack, a smoker who smokes a pack a day is spending about $35 a week which adds up to about $1,820 a year.

Drink from the tap. A bottle of water runs about $2, so if you drink just one bottle a day every week it will set you back $56 a month or about $2,900 a year.

What are your penny pinching ideas, what regular purchases have you cut out?
