Aussies Plan More ‘Mindful’ Christmas Spending
Fresh research has revealed Australians are reining in their Christmas spending and seeking ways to shop more sustainably.
According to St George Bank, almost one in two Australians (43 per cent) are setting spending limits on gifts to friends and family this year.
And roughly one-third (31 per cent) of the 1056 Australians surveyed by the Westpac-owned bank said they were planning to buy fewer gifts this year, too.
St George general manager Ross Miller said few Australians were planning to go “full Scrooge”, though.
Parents expected to spend an average of $255 on their children this Christmas, he said.
