Little foxes spoil the vines.
$25 X 52 weeks = $1300.00 X 10 years =$13,000.00 or X 30 years = $39,000.00. Adjust that for inflation, and you're talking a serious chunk of change. It really could put a dent in that mortgage. Here are a few other stats I saw recently:
Expense Today Over 10 years Over 30 years
Pizza delivery $25 a week $18,661 $158,731
Coffee/donut $4 a day $22,389 $190,453
Smoking $35 a week $26,125 $222,223
Manicure $40 a week $29,857 $253,969
Lunch at work $10 a day* $37,322 $317,462
Golf $75 a week $55,983 $634,924
*work days only
Maybe you don't have a problem with this, but I'm pretty frugal, and I know I do. Dave Ramsey has a saying, "Live like no one else today so you can live like no one else tomorrow." We all like to complain about how the cost of living is rising...how about we put all that effort into saving instead?
Share one thing you've cut back on this year...and figure out your 10 year savings. That should make you smile!!
