Guys, it’s time. We need to talk about ~exactly~ how much money is sitting in our stomachs.
Judging by the number of brown UberEats bags in recycle bins around the country – if ours are any to go by, we’re talking A LOT of bags – Aussies are spending more money on eating out and takeaway food than we’d like to admit.
Now, we have a pretty good idea as to just how much. Cheers, Commonwealth Bank.
According to new transaction data from the CBA, their customers are spending more than $640 million on eating out. Every. Single. Month.
And if you’re one of those smug NAB customers, you can wipe that smug smile off your face because it’s more than likely your bank’s data isn’t much different.
Here’s how the figures are broken down:
At restaurants, you friend, are likely dropping around $140 per month. That’s six per cent more than you were two years ago. And UberEats? Yeah, $90 every month is spent chowing on all the takeaway food.
That’s a total of $57.50 on fancy food a week.
