Default How much do you spend on alcohol each month

Just curious to what others spend on booze for around the house on a monthly basis

Since I have been on Prilosec I can now really enjoy the taste of bourbon without my stomach giving me fits and churning all night

I try and keep a good selection of bourbon on hand at all times and even during this time of year I enjoy a nice drink of bourbon when I get home, really helps me relax in the evening

Finding it can get kind of expensive to keep around and try different brands

Wife likes bloody Mary's on occasion but those cheap to make and she does not consume much alcohol and vodka is cheap

I will buy some beer if company is coming over but we are not big drinkers so I guess if I had to average out the year by month I would say $10.00 a month.

I've never added it up, but I would guess $150.mo for me. One high quality bottle of rum or bourbon, the rest about 50/50 on light beer or craft beer.

Does not include 3-4 nights per month at restaurants/bars.

$58.39 weekly at Total Wine and I have the receipts to prove it. Although, sometimes I'll buy same at Costco for a few pennies difference.

We are pretty much "drinkers of habit" and drink the same thing day in and day out.

Around the holidays or special occasions, the budget goes up slightly for guests.

Weed budget is $0.00. It's nice having a back yard crop every year.

I wish I could still do that. In the drug test pool due to CDL-A. All I have now is booze. Sometimes it can really leave a mark. I think I'm close to 120/month.
