Here’s How Much We Spend Eating Out and Grabbing Coffee Every Year

If you’re wondering where all your money keeps going, this might be the answer.

A new study looked at how much the average American is spending on two things:  Going out to eat . . . and grabbing drinks like coffee and smoothies.  And, spoiler alert:  We’re spending a LOT.

The average person eats at a restaurant or orders takeout or delivery 2.4 times a week, and spends an average of $19.58 each time.  That adds up to about 125 times a year, and costs a total of $2,443.

And we buy drinks like coffee or smoothies 2.5 times a week, at an average of $3.72 cents each time.  That adds up to 130 times a year, and costs us $484.

So when you add it up, we’re spending $2,927-a-year at restaurants and coffee shops.  Which means in the last five years, you’ve dropped $14,635.  You could’ve gotten a Hyundai for that money.  A HYUNDAI.
