If you’re wondering where all your money is going, this could be the problem
This year one of my resolutions is to learn to be a better cook and here is why, Kimmy & I have teens and lord knows they never want to eat the same thing or at the same time. For years I have always felt like a short order cook at a cafe. We would spend at least $200 a month eating out 3-4 times a week with the kids and if you add that up really quick you’ll see how much money is flying out the door . . . That’s $200,000 in Your Lifetime
If you’re wondering where all your money is going, a lot of it is being washed away in a sea of French fries, burgers, chicken wings and pancakes. According to a new survey, the average person now spends $281 every month going out to eat. That adds up to $3,372 every year.
And during your adult life, that’s more than $200,000 you’ll spend going to restaurants. Now keep in mind (The average adult life expectancy in the U.S. is just under 79, so they based that number on ages 18 to 79.)
The survey also found 83% of people had eaten at a fast food restaurant in the past month . . . 61% had gone to a casual sit-down restaurant . . . and 61% had gone to a pizza place or gotten pizza delivered.
Lets see how much you eat out?
