How much time do you spend managing money?

Managing money 10

Here are some interesting stats for you:

 

Average American spends 3 hours/day watching TV for a grand total of 90 hours/month

Using your mobile device comes at 30 hours/month – talking, texting, playing games, etc.

– We spend 13 hours/month playing video games (obviously this number is much higher for younger people though some seniors might be addicted to Tetris, you never know).

– Exercising only takes around 9 hours/month for most people

– We socialize for almost 20 hours/month (including online and in person)

Rest of the time we spend working, sleeping, and eating. I could not find studies showing how much time we spend standing in front of the fridge pondering about food (at least 4 hours in my case) or arguing with your spouse whose turn it is to take the garbage out (none in our family – it’s ALWAYS me).
