#Trending-Thur 9/13/18: How Much We Spend Eating Out and Grabbing Coffee

Here's How Much We Spend Eating Out and Grabbing Coffee Every Year

 

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.  And, 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.

  

And we 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.
