We make many different kinds of choices in our lives, like choices for our health or spending. Everything has a consequence good or bad and we sometimes forget that. We let “Now” get in the way.
The other day I heard on the radio that the average American worker spends $11/day on eating lunch out. That is $55/week or $2750/year. This doesn’t include the cost to drive out to lunch, or the cost of our time and maybe even our health. Now what could $2750 do for your life? Pay down debt, save for a child’s college fund, retirement, or have less worry about paying the day to day expenses? $2750 could be a nice trip, new wardrobe, retirement money, or any number of things that would be better than the fast food we just ate. We could apply it to a health food budget and bring leftovers for lunch and still end up with more money and better health than eating out.
Health choices, less expenses, less stress. A simple life.
