  As the saying goes, nothing in
  this world is free.

  The truth is that much of the
  time, everyday life is an expensive undertaking.

  But with a few concrete changes
  and a minor shift in how you approach your daily expenses, you
  can save enough money each year to make a meaningful difference
  in your personal budget.

  Take coffee for instance - if you
  simply make coffee at home instead of buying a cup from Starbucks
  every day, you could save yourself more than $1,000 a
  year.

  But that's far from the only
  unnecessary expense. By bargain hunting, adopting a DIY mentality, and
  being willing to make a few life changes, you can save thousands
  of dollars each year, and in many cases can save you large sums
  of money on major purchases.

  With that in mind, here are 13
  things you are probably spending too much money on.
