People who give up alcohol for “Dry January” may save more than their health.
According to USA Today just over half of millennials in a survey conducted by the Harris Poll say they intend to take what’s called a “Dry January.”
Some say they go out less when they don’t drink which leads to a healthier diet and more consistent bedtimes.
81% of millennials in the survey say taking a break made them realize just how much money they are spending on alcohol.
According to the survey, millennials tend to spend an average of $300 a month on alcohol while Generation X-ers only spend half as much.
Giving up alcohol in January became popular as a way to counter the effects of eating rich foods during the holidays.
Turns out, it can also help pay off some of those presents you bought.
