It's a constant source of tension with me and my wife. Gotta be upwards of $600 a month.

I haven't purchased alcohol since the week of July 4th 2013. My husband has probably bought 3 BJs cases of beer since then. So...10 bucks a month tops.

if not, then $100-300, if so, then $300-600

I use Mint as a budget manager and every month looking at "Alcohol and Bars" depresses me.

Just for stuff purchased for the house it's around $60/week. Tough to say when calculating going out. I'll just say add another $60...because sometimes it's just a couple drinks at brunch...and sometime's it's going out a couple time and could be triple that. So we're looking at about $500/month. That doesn't include a big liquor run every couple months.

Lunch is the only time I blow the budget accidentally. Barely tipsy at noon with an $80 check for some random cafe. I think I'm just gonna carry handles of Skol everywhere I go. Write scathing Yelp reviews for any establishment that doesn't permit chugging giant purse vodka at the table.

We need to account for calorie offset here. The more beer you drink the less food you need to eat. They're practically the same thing.

Don't track it really. Guessing though about $40-$50 for home supply and maybe $30-$50 if we go out.

$0

I used to spend about $200/month on weed and at least as much on cigarettes, incidentally, but even that's dwarfed by some of y'all's liquor expenditures.

also incidentally, I quit smoking a couple months ago, and it hasn't really saved me any money. because now I just stuff my face with twice as much chicken and ice cream and so on.

I don't really budget anything, and I don't really have an ongoing, regular habit of purchasing alcohol...

i'm sure that it's $0-5 most months. Hell there are probably periods when I go for a month and don't consume any...although what's more common is that I drink a little, but I have enough stocked up at all times that I don't really have to buy any more. Maybe 2-3 months/year, I spend $20-50...and maybe one month every year or two, I find myself in some environment where I get ripshit drunk more than once in a relatively short period (over the last few years, it's been either stops along the way home from Iraq or Afghanistan, and one trip out to TOPGUN at Fallon, NV for a week or two), and then all bets are off.
