Blue 2015 Ford Focus Sedan Front Side
You can lease the 2015 Ford Focus for as little as $119 per month for 24 months. (Ford Motor Company)

You probably don't realize how much you spend on little things like eating out during the workweek. Cutting down on small daily expenses like that can add up to big savings, and those savings can be put toward things that are way more fun than lunch – like a new car.

You may think a new car is out of reach for someone on a budget, but with a little planning and some money down, you can make it work. Think of it this way: if you spend $10 a day on lunch while at work, that’s $50 per week, or about $200 per month. We’ve listed the lease deals with payments under $200 per month below. So dust off that old lunch box, head to Costco and stock up on soup and sandwich fixings. You may miss that burrito and guac at first, but the sacrifice won't seem as great when you're cruising down the street in your brand-new car.
