Did you know that Australians* (And this can be applied to ANY country no matter where you now!) annually throw away more than $8 Billion worth of food?
For the average household that equates to over $1,000 a year. Imagine that $1,000 going towards your mortgage or your annual holiday!
Altogether it’s been estimated that Australians throw away more than $20 Billion a year down to simple, lazy, bad habits such as:
Credit Card Interest $6.06 Billion
Bank Fees $1 Billion
Phone Excess Charges $1.5 Billion
ATM Fees $627 Million
Traffic Fines $1.3 Billion
Unused Gift Cards $360 Million
These are all avoidable with a little planning and discipline – but they are still just a drop in the ocean compared to the real question…
How much money are you throwing away in lost opportunity?
I’ll bet you can picture yourself in a better financial situation than you’re in right now.
If you’re still feeling the pinch after the holidays, that is exactly the reason why right now is the time to do something about it. And you can’t experience a change without trying something new.
This time next year wouldn’t it feel so much better to not worry about how much you spent over the holidays?
