Are you like most Americans and spending $3000 a year on lunch and coffee while at work?
Packing a lunch can be a pain. By the time you've had your morning coffee, taken a shower and completed your other morning motions the last thing you feel like doing is making a sandwich or quick meal for later. The bad news is buying a lunch every day will result in an average of $148 per month out of your budget if not more.
According to accountingprinciples.com the average American spends $2000 annually on lunch outside of the workplace. Think that's bad?
The same survey reports that Americans spend $1000 annually on coffee outside of the office. A staggering amount considering the majority of companies (76% according to NAMA) provide free coffee as an employee benefit. That trend would suggest then that bad office coffee is costing employees.
