Disposable Income Data
This morning I found out how Medway people use their disposable income after they’ve done the weekly shop, paid for the kids after school activities and cleared down all the outstanding bills.
The number one way to spend loose change appeared to be on a good takeaway with most people choosing to have a weekly take-out treat. The favourite is Indian food followed, in second place, by fish and chips and Chinese food is a firm third favourite.
Here are the top 5 ways people in Kent spend disposable income:
- Get a takeaway
- Save it for the future (like a house deposit)
- Hobbies (such as gardening and stamp collecting)
- Computer games
- Online casino gaming
Least Favourite Smell
The smell of a wet dog has been named as the worst smell in a new survey today. Sticky socks also ranked highly!
Looking For A Parking Space
According to a new survey today we spend around 8,325 circling around in search of a parking space. I’ve certainly had that experience during trips to the Bluewater sales and also trying to find that golden on-street parking space in some neighbourhoods!
Apparently motorists are so frustrated by the parknig problem, one in ten have admited to using a disabled bay when they shouldn’t.
It was 5 years ago to the week that a small team were working from a small scribble to create what we now know as Twitter. It then took 3 year, 2 months and a day to reach the billionth Tweet (a billion Tweets are now sent every week). Twitter now sees just under half a million new accounts created daily and employs 400 people. Remember to follow me Mike Russell on Twitter.
