This is an example and not exactly real figures. How much does it really cost in dollars to spend a dollar for pleasure over a years time? Example below:

$50,000 yearly gross income

cost for food

cost for taxes

medical costs

cost for house or house rent

cost for transportation

cost for insurance

educational costs


Total necessary costs

cost of food eating out

vacation costs (includes motel, gas, food and vehicle expenses)

Fees to belong to different organizations

insurance costs for extra for extra things such as nuring home insurance

Donations, charities, and religious gifts

additional travel costs for none necessary things

sporting, plays, and music event costs

sporting, plays, and music participation costs


Total unnecessary costs

Total unnecessary costs divided by total necessary costs equals costs in dollars to earn it.

For every unnecessary dollar you spent, it cost you xx dollars to earn it.
