Question of the Day: How much do millennials spend annually on coffee?
Thanks to Lynn Fischer of Kimberly High School (WI) for recommending this Question of the Day!
- Assuming that they buy a coffee every day of the year (365 days in a year), what would be the daily cost of a cup of coffee?
- What are ways that millennials could reduce their cost of coffee without going "cold turkey" and not drinking it anymore?
- Are there things that you buy on a daily basis that would add up to hundreds of dollars spent on an annual basis? Any ideas on how you could reduce that cost?
- Why do you think that it is easier to spend money on coffee than it is to save for retirement?
Behind the numbers (The Simple Dollar Blog):
The average 25- to 34-year-old reported spending $2,008 per year at coffee shops, and according to a survey by the money app Acorns, 41% of millennials admitted to spending more on coffee in the past year than they had invested in their retirement accounts.
