How Much Are You Spending on Weed?
When I was thinking about quitting, I wanted to figure out all of the reasons that I had to quit. One of those reasons, was the amount I spent. At my peak, I was spending about $300 a month on weed, and little more on weed related things…bongs, pipes etc. How much do you spend on weed?
It’s very empowering to know how much you can save and put to better use when you quit marijuana. If you have dreams, and you don’t have the money yet, plug away at the calculator. You may be closer that you think.
When I calculated it all out, my total is over $25,000…Since Quitting I have saved myself from spending about $20,000
If you’re numbers above are bigger than you’d like, that’s OK. At least you know where you are at. Pay closest attention to your Weekly total. This is money that you can use to reward yourself when you are in the early stages of quitting. If you spend $50 a week and you quit, go book yourself for a massage or a nice dinner as reward. I always recommend stress relieving activities as a reward.
Just wanted to share the results of my blog poll now that we have nearly 2000 responses. Looks like quite a few of our readers are spending a good chunk of change on a monthly basis. I was pretty surprised to see that 71% are spending more than $100 per month and 20% are spending more than $400 a month.
Stop Smoking Weed to Save Money
What would you do with the money that you save when you quit?
After I quit, I got my financial house in order. It took a couple years to pay off debt, and after that get a bit of savings. It all adds up pretty quickly.
How much more would you have in a week, month or year if you stopped spending on cannabis today?
Spending Too Much Money on Weed?
It helps to have the numbers right in front of you. Take it from a guy who was spending way too much money. My grand total is over $30k easily.
The moment you quit, the savings begin. What you do with those savings is up to you, but I recommend you make goals with what to do with the extra money. You’ll be able to treat yourself and your loved ones with gifts, buy vacations, or even vehicles.
