A poll on Singaporeans’ spending habits over the past three months found that they spent the most on food and beverages. A Singaporean could spend an average of $17,000 if he eats out every day for a year.

The key reason for such spending could be that Singaporeans prefer the ease of finding readily available cooked food to the hassle of preparing meals at home, according to the survey conducted by e-commerce company ShopBack.

Also, 50 per cent of respondents are willing to spend twice or more on a meal over the weekend. The average spend per meal is roughly $12 on a weekday and $24.50 on a weekend.
