Women manage family coffers more carefully, according to a survey of Erste Bank's customers, writes profitline.hu.

Some 54% of women compare prices for products worth thousands of forints, while the proportion is only 44% for men.

The survey also revealed how spending habits differ among other demographics. While those living in the capital and younger people prefer to write a list, people in the countryside look through the discount newspaper, while older people usually buy the same things, so they know how much they will spend.

Some 75% buy a promotional product regularly, while more than half of respondents earn points, and 41% also get coupon discounts.

In the case of food, the majority also pay attention to the ingredients in the goods and, if possible, buy domestic products.
