An­drea Kennedy, cer­ti­fied fi­nan­cial plan­ner from Wiser Wealth and au­thor of Own Your Fi­nan­cial Free­dom (Money, Women, Mar­riage and

Di­vorce) It’s one of the big­gest fi­nan­cial drains over time, but you don’t have to give it up com­pletely. Here are some of An­drea’s sug­ges­tions on how you can en­joy two nights out a week – and still save money in a year.

Skip desserts (from $7) and bev­er­ages (from $5).

Yearly sav­ings: $1,248

($728 on desserts and $520 on bev­er­ages)

Pay for cork­age (from $35) for your own bot­tle. Many of us reg­u­larly re­ceive wine as gifts, so bring your own bot­tle in­stead of or­der­ing house wine (from $65 a bot­tle).

Yearly sav­ings: $780

(based on con­sum­ing one bot­tle of wine a fort­night)
