Shop at Aldi instead of Kroger. Clip coupons. Eat at home and dont' buy pre-packaged meals (i.e. actually cook). Mow your own grass. Drop the lawncare service. Quit smoking. There's a never ending list of things you can do to lower your exenses (and plow that money into paying off the debt).
I'll go a little bit further on the car situation: If he lives within a couple miles of work, walk, don't drive. If the grocery is only a couple miles away, walk, don't drive.
It can be done.
