Dads do a TON of free labor around the house, and save their families tens of thousands of dollars a year. Translation: Don't just buy him three packs of M&M's at the gas station this Sunday on the way to a Father's Day lunch.
Insure.com just released the results of their annual report on the value of all the stuff dads do around the house.
And they found that in 2014, the average dad does $24,103 worth of work.
That's based on his work as an accountant, plumber, tutor, coach, handyman, car mechanic, builder, pest control worker, taxi driver, laborer, cook, and groundskeeper . . . and what you'd have to pay all of those people to do what dad does for free.
That value is up 3% from last year, and up 19% from 2012.
