Three quarters or 77% of adults have concerns over how much money they are able to save each month. That said, they also admit to wasting large sums of money each month, which is affecting their ability to squirrel way any savings according to Standard Life.
The average adult wastes £52 per week, which could be put into a savings account- this totals at a staggering £2,704 every year. Realistically, they could spend £92 less, without affecting their lifestyle.
The findings show that people enjoy short term perks as opposed to long terms gains. Although it would be nice to see your savings mount up over the course of a year- people favour little treats along the way instead.
The mother of the child sent home from school on World Book Day for dressing like Fifty Shades of Grey lead character Christian Grey has spoken out in an interview with ITV's Good Morning Britain.
Alongside her 11-year-old son Liam, who admitted it was his own idea to dress like the character, Nicola Scholes said to the show: "I don't regret allowing him to go as that character...
"Every child of the age of 11 knows who he is. He walked into school yesterday and every child knew who he was so I don't think he's gone as something that's not been accessible to children of his age before."
Desiree Akhavan is no stranger to the director's chair having created and helmed TV series The Slope, but she is set to make her feature film directorial debut this week with Appropriate Behaviour.
As well as being in the director's chair for Appropriate Behaviour, Akhavan wrote, produced, and stars in the film, which has already been winning over critics and audiences on the festival circuit - where it has been playing extensively over the last twelve months.
Akhavan is a talent both in front of and behind the camera that you really do need to watch out for, as this is one of the most interesting and compelling directorial debuts that I have seen for some time. She really does have a very exciting career ahead of her and I think she is going to deliver some terrific movies with interesting themes over the next few years.
