Bad news: You're probably spending one out of every 10 or 11 dollars you make just so you can have something to eat and drink WHILE you make those dollars.
A new survey by Visa found the average employee spends $18 every work day on some combination of breakfast, coffee, lunch, snacks, and food to take home for dinner that night.
You probably don't buy all of those every day, but they average out to $18 a day.
Let's say you work 47 weeks a year, with five weeks off between vacation, holidays, and sick and personal days.
That's 235 work days . . . at $18-a-day, that means you spend $4,230 eating and drinking at work.
If you make $50,000-per-year, that's about 8% of your salary on food.
