The 'Need to Save Money' Infographic Will Shock Couples

— October 31, 2011 — Lifestyle
Those who are already in a relationship may be familiar with these stats, but for those who are single, the 'Need to Save Money' Infographic may come as a shock. The statistics show that the total amount spent in a month while dating could be saved up for some lavish vacation trips.

Many couples may not have calculated their monthly total, but have surely felt their wallets gone light. The chart shows that this hefty sum could have taken the ladies on a ten day vacation cruise to the Caribbean with the company of three friends.
