New study shows top spending vices include restaurant meals, cigarettes, clothing and lottery tickets

Toronto (November 12, 2013) – Three quarters of Canadians are ready to tackle their spending vices, suggests new research released today. The study, Every Dollar Counts, was conducted by Capital One Canada and Credit Canada Debt Solutions to kick off the seventh annual Credit Education Week, taking place November 12 to 15 across Canada.

Despite 68 per cent of Canadians living on a budget, half feel they’ve lost control of personal finances.

Toronto (Oct. 30, 2013) – When it comes to taking control of your relationship with money, Canadians may want to start with other important relationships – your family and friends. The new consumer trends survey Every Dollar Counts, conducted by Credit Canada Debt Solutions and Capital One Canada for Financial Literacy Month, found Canadians’ spending habits are heavily influenced by the people around them and it’s hurting their ability to reach their personal financial goals.
