Stop/Reduce Eating Out
You pay a high price for the convenience of eating out. If you know how to cook a hamburger patty or wait 30 minutes for a chicken breast to bake, you can prepare your own meals. If cooking isnâ€™t your thing, you can always downgrade the kinds of eating out you are doing â€“ trade in your four star meals for drive-thru steals . . . at least until you reach your savings goal!

You never know what could happen during the work day. The cashier at Dunkin Donuts could give you the wrong change, another driver who’s late to work could drift into your lane, or you could get seriously hurt while on the job. Stranger things have been known to happen and if your particular line of work puts you at risk for injury and your job is offering disability benefits, you had better consider them.
The truth of the matter is that lots of people get hurt on the job and are laid up for several weeks while they heal. That’s weeks out of work and if you don’t have disability benefits, that’s weeks without any kind of income. That alone can be disastrous when it comes to your finances which is why you should always consider disability.
There are plenty of organizations out there, and sites and services like SSDI FAQ’s that have more information on getting something like this started. Remember that investing in disability is a lot like investing in your future which, unfortunately, you can’t predict. You don’t know what’s going to happen to you tomorrow on the job. Don’t wait for life to strike when you can be one step ahead.
