|You deserve a treat.|
According to a new CareerBuilder survey (Harris), the average amount people pay just to go to work is $276 a month or $3,300 a day.
Driving. Eighty-four percent of workers drive to work. Thirty-seven percent pay more than $25 a week for gas, the rest less.
Public transportation. Seven percent take public transportation--almost half paying more than $25 a week.
Lunch. Seventy-two percent bring lunch from home--but half of those who buy spend more than $25 a week.
Daycare. Among those with kids under 18, 29% pay for daycare. Of these, more than a third pay $500 or more a month.
Pet care. Fifty-eight percent of workers have a pet. More than half spend more than $10 a week on pet care.
Coffee. Half buy coffee in a given week--71% spend less than $10 a week.
Clothing, Shoes, Accessories. Nearly half said they paid $250 or more a year. One in 4 spent more than $500 a year.
I guess this isn't too surprising. I remember living in DC, I spent $10 every time I left the house--or more. It just cost to go outside.
