If you’re wondering where all your money keeps going, this might be the answer.
A new study looked at how much the average American is spending on two things: Going out to eat and grabbing drinks like coffee and smoothies. Spoiler alert: We’re spending a LOT.
The average person eats at a restaurant or orders takeout or delivery 2.4 times a week, and spends an average of $19.58 each time. That adds up to about 125 times a year, and costs a total of $2,443.
We also buy drinks like coffee or smoothies 2.5 times a week, at an average of $3.72 cents each time. That adds up to 130 times a year, and costs us $484.
So when you add it up, we’re spending $2,927-a-year at restaurants and coffee shops. Which means in the last five years, you’ve dropped $14,635. You could’ve gotten a Hyundai for that money. A HYUNDAI.
Whelp, all that seems like a lot…but what if you’re eating out (or ordering in, as the case may be), MORE than that?
Cassie is addicted…to Uber Eats. Like 6 meals in a row addicted. She needs a punishment if she EVER uses it again (after she orders breakfast for her and Davi, obviously).
And our Bert Show listener is addicted to Monster Energy Drinks (sometimes 2 a day!) and so they’re holding each other accountable.
We check back in after one day…and it’s not going well. They BOTH slipped up. But the weekend is a brand new opportunity for success and a clean slate…did they make it happen? OR DID THEY FIND A LOOPHOLE?
