A FIFTH of adults down two pints a day in the pub but giving up could save almost Â£3,000, a study found â enough to cover Ârising energy bills.
And those who indulge in ten small glasses of a wine a week could save Â£2,168 a year by quitting.
The average British household with two adults spends Â£11.30 per week on alcohol, according to research for MoneyÂTransfers.com.
This equates to Â£587.60 a year on booze and is more than is spent on fresh fruit and vegetables.
A small glass of wine is about Â£4.17.
But one in five adults does not drink at all, the firm said.
CEO Jonathan Merry said: âWhatâs clear is that for the population that drinks on a frequent basis, life-changing sums of money could be saved from a lifestyle shift.â
Regionally, Brits in the north west spend more per week on alcohol at home than any other region, at an average of Â£10.90 a week.
But Londoners spend the least with an at-home alcohol budget of Â£8.10.
This, however, could be because they are more likely to visit pubs.
