Saving money for the finer things in life

If you have a taste for good wine, good food or luxury travel, ensuring that you have enough cash to support your lifestyle is a must.

Though for some finding the money for that special vintage or spontaneous weekend away isn’t an issue, many people across the country need a bit of help when it comes to saving up.

A new infographic created by responsible lender MYJAR illustrates exactly what it is the UK is spending its money on, helping people across the country to get control of their finances and save their cash for the important things in life.

For example, did you know that, on average, Brits spend just £4.20 a week on fresh vegetables while splashing out £100 a month on takeaways? Or that women spend around twice as much a year on toiletries and gym membership as men?


By identifying where exactly it is our money is going, it makes it easier to cut down on unnecessary spending, giving us more cash for nice wine, eating out and other important treats.

If there’s ever a time that your finances simply won’t stretch, MYJAR offer good value short-term loans to see you through to your next payday.
