According to research from the Skipton Building Society, people could achieve financial happiness simply by saving an extra £6.75 a week – that’s the equivalent to the cost of a daily chocolate bar.*
When people were asked how much they needed to save to feel happy about their financial situation, the average amount given was £194 a month. On average, people save £167 a month, meaning they’re only falling £27 short of their happiness target – £6.75 a week.
