Between dialing into Zoom calls and skipping the morning shower, the average U.S. worker can save almost $5,000 a year, according to a calculator created by the career site Zippia.

Zippia used a default amount of time and money involved for typical work-related activities, including an average of $.50 for the cost of each 15 minute hot shower and $1.25 for beauty and personal care products used during 30 minutes per groom session to look presentable at the office.

There’s also the cost of getting there. Zippia used a default of 2 minutes per mile on the commute at an average of $.59 per mile.

If you’re not driving into the office, you’re also probably not stopping for that expensive cup of coffee. Zippia figured an average spending of $10 on lunch, $3 for coffee, roughly 1 hour of talking to coworkers and 1 hour of Zoom meetings each day.

Sticking to these defaults, working from home can save about 8 hours of time and $92 per week, according to Zippia. Over a span of 50 work weeks, a remote worker could save themselves $4,600 and 48 work days of time on average.
