80% of Russians cut their spending
“What, and now is not the time?!” – some readers will be outraged when they see the title. Well, what to do, such is life today. Or a pandemic, then closed borders, then quarantine, then a special operation, then inflation … As a result, over the past two years, our man slowly began to forget what it is – a vacation and going to a restaurant. And if the time has come to save on something, first in these remnants of a happy past.
This was discovered by the analysts of the Zarplata.ru portal, after having interviewed 1720 people. According to the survey, this spring, 80% of Russians began to save money (we think it is not necessary to explain the reasons). Of these, almost half responded to the question “What did you start saving this spring” without hesitation: “Everything!” As for specific expenses, first of all, the Russians reduced the cost of recreation – vacation trips and trips to cafes and restaurants.
– Such statistics are linked first of all with psychology. The consequences of sanctions and counter-sanctions will affect everyone. And reducing spending is an indicator of people’s mood, uncertainty about the future, – explained Vladimir Grigoriev, financial expert, candidate of economic sciences, on the air of KP radio. – Some people’s income has fallen, others are not confident that they will be able to maintain the previous level of income … And restaurants, cafes, etc. they are among the pleasures that a person can easily do without.
By the way, many people began to spend less not only on “pleasures”, but even on the most necessary things: for example, food and clothes (for details, see “Only numbers”). And only one in a hundred of the respondents is ready to save on alcohol – times are not easy now, you cannot figure it out without a hundred grams.
At the same time, the Russians shared their ways of saving. The secrets turned out to be simple: to save more money, 94% of those surveyed started paying more attention to discounts, and 74% visit discount stores.
