Daily Expense


Our spending habits can quickly add up to huge amounts. We become accustomed to these daily costs and never realize the long-term cost of these buying habits. Use this tool to help you estimate and visualize these small daily expenses. This also shows an estimate of what returns you could make if invested in a stock market index fund over time. Consider reducing or eliminating these expenses from your budget and daily habits!

How to use the tool

Select an item that you buy daily along with how many per day you purchase. To expand the length of time displayed, update the "how long" slider. The default calculation shows cost if bought Monday through Friday, select the checkbox to add weekends as well.
