I was having a rough time trying to figure out my latte factor, as I really do not spend my money on anything deemed unnecessary on a consistent basis. I go home for lunch, drink the free coffee at work, don’t smoke – no real habits, I guess you could say.
Then it hit me, I go home for lunch every day. By not bringing my lunch with me, I drive an extra 20 miles everyday. I figured with my gas mileage, that costs me about $1.50/day. Not too bad, but over 40 years (which is how long until I am 65), that is over $292,000!
Talk about a reason to bring your lunch to work! Thanks!
