Saving money and London are not exactly compatible things. Everyone knows that life in the capital is not cheap, and the expenses are waiting for Londoners at almost every corner. But, it turns out, it is still possible to save, if you really want to.
In a new study conducted by Carphone Warehouse, 5,000 Londoners were interviewed. People were asked how they control their finances and whether they manage to save money. It was found that more than half (56%) of the residents of the capital are constantly in search of new methods of reducing expenses.
Currently, more than half (52.6%) people collect coupons for discounts, and a quarter (23.18%) of Londoners tried to save money on their hairstyle by stopping attending a hairdresser.
Surprisingly, almost a fifth of respondents (19.24%) grow food by themselves, and 23.5% of Londoners admitted that they use tap water as a drinking water.
