Figures from the Co-operative bank survey shows that the average adult will spend approximately £175 on entertainment, clothes, food, drink and travelling just on this one day; leading many to turn to their credit cards to fund this extravagance.

This figures should be treated as a warning, that shoppers need to have a good grip over their finances. This way they can be sure that they can afford to treat themselves and avoid getting into unnecessary debt.
