The calculation formula to help you break money attachments to furniture is:
- Take how much the item you have cost. (Example: $1000)
- Figure out how long you had the item (Example: 5 years or 60 months. 5 years x 12 months in a year = 60 months)
- $1000 divided by 60= $16.66 a month
- Divide $16.66/30 days in a month on average. Which equals $0.55 cents each day. Only 55 cents a day
Now how do you feel about that “expensive” piece of furniture?
