Tightwad Tip of the Day! How to save $1000 per year!

23 Feb

Are you a Cola-A-Holic?

My drug of choice, besides Couponing is Dr. Pepper.  There was a time in my life that I would drink 4 or 5 cans or bottles a day!  Then one day I decided enough was enough.  I was gaining weight around my tummy, and losing weight in my wallet!

You say, its only a dollar…no big deal???

Here is a quick calculation of how much money can be spent during the course of a year for a recovering DP addict:

1 16 oz. btl Dr. Pepper avg. cost:  $1.00

Drinking only 1 per day = $365 per year!

1 can Dr. Pepper avg. cost: $.75

Drinking only 1 per day = $273.75 per year!

1 Lrg. Dr. Pepper from McDonalds avg. cost $1.00

Drinking only 1 per day = $365 per year!

Now for a major drinker like myself, before my reformation, multiply that by 4 to 5 times! It only took one time of calculating the cost of $365 x 3 = $1095 (averaging it out, because there were days I did not drink 4 or 5) to make my decision to SLOW THE HECK DOWN!! Not to mention, this is only calculating my personal consumption. I have a family of 5 at home now, and everyone loves soda. No wonder we never take vacations, we are drinking it away!!

Water is a good thing, and I have lost weight since making the change.

Thank you for taking the time to visit The Katy Coupon Zone, blogged from Katy, TX a.k.a…God’s Country!

Happy couponing and…stay in the Zone!!
