Russians began to spend less on large purchases and began to give preference to cheaper products. These are the conclusions reached by the experts of the Rate & Goods service after a survey.

As the RIA News, within three days, experts talked with 23 thousand customers throughout Russia. 67% of them said they began to closely monitor their costs.

More than half of those who began to save under the new conditions reduced their costs within 10%, the rest - halved them, or even put aside everything that is possible for a rainy day.

Among citizens who reduced their expenses, 64% postponed the purchase of equipment, 63% began to save due to the closure of shopping centers, 61% less likely to buy clothes, 56% began to choose cheaper food.

Earlier, experts from insurance companies conducted research and found that most Russians entered the crisis not having an airbag in case of unemployment. The share of respondents without savings in the regions was 63%, in Moscow - 45,5%.
