But at the same time found out what the amount of monthly takes us to all sorts of other expenses.
the Correspondent of “MK” got interested in what this “other spending”? And we went to the Mall to find out: what, besides food, pull your money residents of the capital?
For comparison, the experts give the following figures.
May: total expenses of an average Russian family – 57,6 thousand RUB From them was spent on food – 23,9 thousand rubles, which accounted for 42% of total spending.
June: total expenses – 58 thousand RUB From them to food – 21 thousand rubles, which is 36% of total payments.
