Add on the mortgage cost and is it £700 per week?
That's quite a lot to spend net, but why is mortgage and or rent excluded? Household spending was highest in the transport category at £62 a week. This included £23.40 on purchase of vehicles, £28.60 on the operation of personal transport (such as petrol, diesel, repairs and servicing) and £10.00 on transport services such as rail, tube and bus fares. The second highest category of spending was recreation and culture at £58 a week. This includes TVs, computers, newspapers, books, leisure activities and package holidays. On average, £13.20 a week was spent on package holidays abroad, compared to £0.90 a week on package holidays in the UK. Housing (excluding mortgage costs), fuel and power placed third at £48.
