I will admit it…I’ve spent a LOT of time on the couch during the pandemic.
I’ve also gone out to the bars & restaurants…dined in, taken out, had curbside pickup…and then gone back home to enjoy the comfort of my couch & my TV.
But I don’t know if I’ve spent an extra 448 hours on there this year.
I also got out and went for Harley rides, walks with the dogs, we drove to Baraboo & Iowa during our “Stay-cation”…and we definitely spent many nights on the back deck, enjoying the weather and a firepit.
But, according to a new survey, the average American has spent an extra 448 hours on their couch since the ‘Rona got really bad in March.
Now, 448 sounds like a lot, but do the math, and it’s only about 2 hours more per day than previously.
I suppose you could be like Lucas and just take the pillow from the couch wherever you go….
Some other stats about our time on the couch during the ‘Rona:
- Our couch is our second-favorite piece of furniture overall. The top five are our bed, sofa, lounge chair, coffee table, and home office furniture.
- The average sofa is seven years old. Half of us would like a new one but don’t want to spend the money.
- 61% of people who are working from home say the couch has become their main workstation.
- And 7 in 10 say their “perfect night in” right now involves their sofa in some way.
