Changing Consumer Spending

A very useful report published to show how what we spend our money on has changed over the last 50 years.
There is a useful summary in this BBC NEWS report.

There is a look at Consumer goods.
Also a report on how different families spend their money.

Click here to download a PDF summary of the report from the Office of National Statistics website.

Also worth noting that more people than ever are now in 'fuel poverty', and there are likely to be a lot of people having mortgage difficulties this year too..
It's a cheery time all round isn't it...

What do you think ? How has your household spending changed ?
