Unless you were pressing and ironing your bills like MMM did when he was a lad, you probably are going to be shocked when you learn the ways of being Mustachian. Forgive yourself your past sins, accept where you are at, and resolve to do better. Every "win" such as reducing cell phone costs emboldens you to look at the next problem area and the next. Eating out, eating out for your work lunch, driving an expensive car, paying for cable with bells and whistles, paying too much for insurance, drinking, smoking, recreational shopping, expensive vacations, lavish gift giving, paying too much for education... The possibilities for saving real money seem endless. So save some, and save some more. The better it gets, the better it gets!
