Alcohol adds up

(FOX19 NOW/Kara Sewell) (FOX19 NOW/Kara Sewell)

There's a way you can save hundreds of dollars every month! But you probably won't like it.

The U.S. Department of Health just released a study on how much money people spend on alcohol and its mind blowing: $24 billion is spent in bars every year in this country.

One-third of people average about one beer or glass of wine per night. That adds up to about $1,500 annually.

It gets worse for the top 10 percent of drinkers who on average consume 74 alcoholic beverages every week!

Each year, that adds up to nearly $10,000.
