Giving up Pret porridge could buy you a Givenchy bag

Pret say their £2.35 pots of porridge are the most popular thing they sell. So that's where all our money goes then.

That salary sucking machine Pret have released sales figures showing porridge is on the up.

Their little pots of warming morning brekkie are selling like hot, well, porridge with over 9,000 bowls a day walking out the door and a massive 3.2 million pots sold in 2013.

But this porridge addiction is impacting your life in a bigger way, and for once we're not talking about calories (243 a pot if you're interested).

A 1kg bag of oats from your local supermarket costs as little as 75p, so with a pot of Pret porridge setting you back £2.35 a day - it is time to do some handbag economics.

If you were to buy porridge five days a week, 48 weeks of the year (allowing for Christmas and the odd holiday) you would be spending £564 on porridge a year.

Have you met this Givenchy bag? It is £670 - if you give up porridge, you'll nearly be there. Can't argue with handbag economics people.
