What Is Your Time Worth?

Considering how hard you work, you always want to spend money wisely. It can be sobering to look at your expenses in terms of how many hours you worked to fund them, and that’s what this calculator shows you.

Think of a regular indulgence, like the three nights a week you go out for dinner. Estimate how much you spend on each dinner. If it’s $30 each, then your yearly expense is $90 x 52 = $4,680. Punch that annual expense into the calculator below and fill in the rest of the numbers about your hours worked and paycheck.

The result is how long you work each year to pay for your dinners out. If the number of hours is an unpleasant surprise, then think about revising your spending habits.
