Aussies are committed to saving

Aussie households are keen to save more according to ING Direct's latest Household Financial Wellbeing index. 

44 per cent said they wanted to save more, 41 per cent said they wanted to reduce their cost of living and 32 per cent said they planned to cut back on discretionary spending.

Aussies have become much more committed to saving since the global financial crisis in 2008.
