Obviously to get faster boot times you should have a SSD. I buy used SSDs between $5 and $10 CAD. These are smaller capacity, but linux doesn't require much. My typical Lubuntu install is less than 4GB disk space.

If you want to use traditional spinning disks, open a terminal window and type

systemd-analyze blame
systemd-analyze critical-chain

The above will tell you what services are being loaded. If you don't use those services, you can delete them to speed up boot time even more.
