20. Your cellphone data plan

The data plan is one reason your monthly wireless bill is so dang high. Lose the internet capabilities and go back to having a phone that's just a phone. Maybe it's not as much fun that way, but it's less expensive.

You can chill just fine without The Crown or Stranger Things.

Do you really need that Netflix subscription?

18. Concerts

Concerts can be crowded, you can have a terrible view, the acoustics tend to be awful and the performers can be off key. Just watch them on YouTube instead.

Watching concerts online costs less and has fewer hassles.

17. Store-bought gifts

Do they really need more stuff? Bake or make something more meaningful that you know they'll really love.

16. Alcohol

This may be the hardest one to give up when you've got money issues and need to save. But if you're going out to bars all the time, you could easily be spending $20 to $50 a week on booze, not to mention pushing up your calorie count.

When you're on a budget, it may be a good time to quit drinking.

15. New clothes

Trust us: No one will notice if you're still wearing last season's styles. (But if you're 10 or 20 years behind, you're in trouble.)

12. Sporting events

Sports stadiums suck huge amounts of money from taxpayers and fans. Spare yourself the high ticket and food prices and cheer from the comfort of your couch instead.

If you're a sports fan, the best seat is probably right in front of your TV.

11. Going out to the movies

The average cost of a movie ticket is around $9, and you're also likely to blow money on drinks, popcorn and parking. You probably own a few movies that you haven't watched in a long time, so stay in and fire one up!
