Women better at DIY budgeting

MEN are more likely than women to budget for DIY projects in the home, but they have a greater tendency to let their sums spiral out of control.

More than a third (34%) of men admitted in a Nationwide Building Society survey to blowing the funds they had set aside for sprucing up their property, compared with three in 10 women. Only one in 11 men said they would set out on a project without a fixed budget.
