Finance Shape-Up in 40 Days

From Bankrate.com:

"Giving up restaurants and fast food could save an extra car payment. The average consumer spends about $272 over 40 days on eating out, according to the U.S. Department of Labor's 2010 Consumer Expenditures survey."

I would not give up restaurant visits, but can get quality enjoyment at reasonable pricing.

40-days is a symbol of test and trial according to the Bible; but consistency and healthy-habit building is the key for this shape-up.
