Survey to reveal Aussie’s real life money secrets

Food prices are rising, home ownership is increasingly unaffordable and activities such as the occasional meal at the local pub that were once part of the average Australian lifestyle have become unaffordable luxuries.

None of these changes are news to millions of Australians in the grip of a cost of living crisis.

But as we’ve all seen our expenses — and in many cases, our debts — rise and savings dwindle, the details of what we do with our money tend to remain elusive when it comes to what we share with our partners.

We all struggle and many of us make changes to survive. And that’s why we want to hear from you.

News.com.au is launching a survey giving Australians the chance to tell how they – and find out how others – really cope with financial pressures.

We want to know if you think you will ever be able to own your own home, if you already have one or if you have given up on it.

Have you had to tighten your household budget when everything is getting more expensive? And if so, do you always stick to it?

We are interested in what is the biggest burden on your finances and what you have found yourself having to cut back on.

And let’s face it, we’re all curious about what other people do with their money.

That’s why news.com.au will be sharing these survey results in articles that will reveal how Australians really get by and changing attitudes to the fading Australian dream of a property market crash.

A recent survey of 4,000 Australians found that 89 per cent of Australians are concerned about the rising cost of living, with food, energy, health and rent the top concerns. Of all the financial pressures facing Australians, rent and mortgage were the most frequently cited concerns.
