Buy a latte every morning before work? Here's how much money you're frittering away

Warning: you might get a fright.

ANYONE WHO IS a slave to coffee will be fully aware of the massive chunk of change you can spend on coffee per month.

A new survey conducted by BBC’s Good Food shows that younger people are spending a ridiculous amount of money on food per month, thanks in large part to the fact that they eat out in cafés/restaurants more often than the older demographic.

Think about it: we’re all guilty of spending stupid amounts of money on takeaway sandwiches and coffees — but think of what you could be buying instead!

If you were to spend €2.80 on a medium latte every morning, it would equate to €14 per week or €56 per month. And that equates to €672 per year.


For that money, you could buy…
