Hey does anyone out there have $180 dollars laying around that they could loan me?
Oh wait….I do!!! Not drinking is making my bank balance go up a bit! These are my low-ball estimates of how much drinking costs me. In reality, it costs much more than this, but I created a simple equation just now.
1 bottle of wine = 10$ So, if I round down and say that I was drinking 1 bottle of wine per day (but it was often more) at home, on my own, I can say that drinking costs me a minimum of 10$ per day.
1 day = 10$ X 18 days = 180$ Today I am 180$ richer for not drinking. I could stretch that pretty far since I like good bargain.
In reality, drinking more likely costs me 15$ per day and more when I drink at a bar or restaurant.
1 day = 15$ X 18 days = 270$ Wow, so in 18 days I’ve spared myself close to 300$. I would much rather this money go to my bank than to the corner store.
