Counting the dollars that were given to the car companies, I could easily retire 5 years earlier. Buying a car is the easy part, the difficult part is what comes with it.
1 bottle of liquor at a club can cost about $200. Assuming I buy a bottle of liquor a month, that’s $2,400 a year. And 5 years is equivalent to $12,000. Not including the tips and the nightly taxi fares.
Thankfully I am not a heavy spender on fashion. But I have spent a fair share of my money on clothes, unnecessarily. Most of them are given away or somewhere in the bottom of the incinerator.
4. Video Games
Like a car, buying the console is easy. The expensive part is when new games are released every few months. A new game usually cost about $70. I’ve spent a few thousands on them if I were to count the games I bought for my PS1, PS2, PS3, PSVita, and PC. Not counting the thousands of wasted hours.
Junk food, to be precise. McDonald’s, KFC, potato chips, chocolate, soft drinks, etc. I really eat a lot of them in my younger days. I can’t imagine the financial and health benefits I could just cut down a little.
