ASDA releases new report confirming how mums across the country are managing their family finances.
This month has seen the release of some fascinating research and information from ASDA, confirming how mums across the country have managed with their family finances over the last 12-18 months.
Whilst my little one prepares for school and I look forward to saying goodbye to the dreaded childcare bills, it seems I’m not alone in the strict shopping lists and monitoring of the utility and petrol bills.
Most noticeably, the report confirms that 23% of ASDA mums have put off having another baby due to financial pressures, 48% have felt the economy has affected their chances of getting a new job and 55% haven’t been able to move home.

The report highlights that it’s no longer just the luxuries that mums are cutting back on but the basics too: food, heating and fuel.
When 80% of mums surveyed have less disposable income than 12 months ago, it’s no surprise that mums are worried that their financial situation will leave them with a lower quality of life.
If you’re a mum, please let us know what you’ve cut back on in the last 12 months due to finances. Do you think this has led to a lower quality of life for you and your family?
