- Revealing areas where typical UK households splash their cash
- Shareable infographic illustrates the surprising ways how Brits use their money
- Financial services company MYJAR keeps things simple with easy-to-understand loans
MYJAR has unveiled a brand new infographic showing the strange spending habits and surprising ways UK households spend their money.
Easily digested and perfect for sharing on social media and embedding within blog platforms, this fun piece of visual content focuses on a number of interesting areas presenting surprising insights on how Brits use their money from cakes, buns and biscuits to gym memberships.
Did you know, for example, that those living in Northern Ireland spend more on cakes, buns and biscuits than any other area of the UK; amounting to £4.10 per week?* Or that Brits aged 25-34 spend more than double on takeaways than over 45 year olds.**
From daily newspapers to annual holidays, there's plenty of areas where Brits can save money.
Commenting on the launch of the infographic, MYJAR CEO Gareth Gumbley said: "As a responsible lender, we like to keep things as simple as possible with everything we do. And although there are some things in life we can't plan for, there are simple things we can all do to make our money go as far as possible - starting with understanding where and how we spend our money day-to-day."
