The cost of my addiction
Tuesday, March 12, 2013
Over a month ago I said good bye to sodas. I quit cold turkey. Today, I noticed an article headline saying that Water had replaced Sodas as the #1 beverage. The very first thought I had before I even read the article was, "Well in this economy it's best to go with what's free."
That got me thinking, so I did the math. Considering that a can of soda, on average, costs around $.40, and I used to drink roughly 7 cans a day, that meant that I was drinking just shy of $20 (twenty dollars) a week! $19.60 * 4 weeks = $78.40 of my hard earned dollars literally pissed away. (sorry for the crudeness)
That means in the span of 1 year, I spent roughly $950, on Diet Pepsi.
No wonder I was so broke.
