Buying oppulance equipment is a formidable process.
Whether it’s a hangover of my university ‘budget over everything’ mindset or simply the fact that I’d rather be spending my income on things that we don’t use to clean my bum, going for the cheapest option is a robe that’s tough to shake.
We all know that upgrading your essentials can mostly lead to a distant easier life (and, in some cases, works out better value in the prolonged run), but it seems I’m not alone in sticking onto my low-cost lifestyle.
A new study from YouGov has suggested that many Brits onslaught to go for the oppulance option when doing their grocery shopping, some-more mostly than not opting for the mid-range chronicle of their essential items.
There are two pivotal exceptions, though: sausages, and mattresses. Of course.
Yep – it seems that nap and sausages are Brits’ two categorical priorities when it comes to permitting themselves a little luxury.
42% of people go for the top-range pig sausage when they’re stuffing their baskets, while 39% will settle for a middle-of-the-road banger.
56% of those surveyed vouched for shopping the top peculiarity mattress, compared to just 38% who’ll settle for a mid-range one.
These are clearly the only two equipment which Brits will dash out on, with Brits differently overwhelmingly opting for the mid-range object in all other cases – from baked beans to duvets, toothpaste to whole chickens, and all in between.
The study covered all sorts of daily food and household essentials, as good as some-more ‘one-off’ purchases, such as kettles and bedroom items.
As for the sausage/mattress debate, it seems all those scare-stories about minced piggy eyelids and a bad night’s nap literally killing you have worked.
Either that or we Brits have just got the priorities so very right.
Now, if you’ll forgive us, it’s time for breakfast in bed.
