Did you know:
- Your morning latte is costing you big. If you’re purchasing a medium latte every week day, you could be spending $780 in a year! That’s assuming you are only purchasing a plain $3 latte; imagine how much more you’re spending if you’re buying a “fancy” drink or buying multiple coffee drinks each day.
- Eating out every week may be the reason you’re blowing through your budget. If you go out to eat once a week and spend $25 each time, you’re spending an extra $1,300 in a year! That could be a down payment on a car!
- Your regular vending machine purchases could be eating through your savings. If you’re spending $2 per week day on vending machine snacks, you are spending an extra $520 per year! You could use that money to buy a plane ticket for Spring Break.
