    Default How much per week do you spend on alcohol?

    As the title suggests....how much per week does your household spend on an average on alcohol?

    I just went through our bank statements and we are averaging $50 per week on alcohol (from the bottle shop, so this is not alcohol purchased when out).

    I am shocked to be honest, that is over 2.5k per year!

    My partner will buy a carton maybe once every 6 months. That's about it.

    Maybe $35 a month for home. I don't go out often so will buy a bottle for home. That one bottle can last for months though pending on how life is with work etc.

    Too much, lol! I probably drink at least a bottle of wine a week and DH would drink at least a carton a f/n. Unfortunately DH has expensive taste lol.

    No idea. None for me atm. DH makes home brew (beer) so when he buys grain/hops/yeast I think its about $50 a month or so.

    When we do buy beer from the store its all craft beer so spend from $50-$100 but that is about once every 6 months or so.

    We don't drink a lot, but DH enjoys a good whiskey Which is usually around $100 a bottle. Lasts roughly a month.
