The average UK household spends more each week on alcohol to drink at home than it does on fruit and vegetables.
That is just one of the findings of a new survey on the nation's spending habits, compiled by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
UK households now spend £5.90 a week on
beer, wine and spirits for consumption at home, compared to £5.40 a week on fresh fruit and vegetables.
Some £5.40 a week was spent on tobacco products and illegal drugs.
And homes spend more on computer games - £1.10 a week - than they do on equipment for sport, camping, or any other open air recreation.
Transport is the highest overall weekly expense for UK households though, costing an average £59.20.
Is this where all our money is going?
Money spent on recreation - which the survey classifies as everything from television to holidays, books and leisure activities - was the second highest spend on £56.40 a week.
The figures come from the ONS's latest annual Expenditure and Food Survey.
It found that the cost of public and private transport is the biggest single item in the £406 weekly budget for 2002-3.
The survey, carried out annually for nearly half a century, asks almost 7,000 households to track where their money goes on a daily basis.
More than six in 10 of the households surveyed had just one or two people in them, and about a third included children.
The average for household spending each week ranges from £136 for the lowest income groups to £883 for the highest.
But as you would expect, the breakdown in spending varies widely between poor and rich.
The least well-off tenth of the population spent 16% of their budget on food and non-alcoholic drinks, compared to 8% for the most wealthy.
Tobacco spending, on the other hand, peaks in the middle of the income spread.
Age also plays a part, with newspapers most important to the oldest participants and least important for the under-30s.
And unsurprisingly geography dictates total spending, the survey showed.
London's average weekly household budget was £487 a week, with Wales footing the list at £335.
Urban areas outside London, however, showed low spending averaging £336 with a smaller proportion going on transport.
Rural areas, in contrast, spent £458 on average.
