A 'Dry January' is good for more than just your health. Many Americans would benefit financially from a ‘Dry January’ according to a Harris Poll survey. The survey, which included 1,011 adults ages 23 and up, found that millennials spend about $300 a month on alcohol or about $56 per outing. By comparison, Gen Xers and boomers said they spend $151 and $97, respectively, on booze each month.
