A Nation of Time wasters? Find out if you're one of them.


Roses are Red, violets are blue, clutter is passe, but storage is new. We all struggle with clutter and procrastination is our number one enemy! We would rather hoover the dog than deal with the things that would significantly improve our lives, and this includes clutter.

RateSetter, the UK’s leading peer-to-peer lender, has launched the first ever in-depth report looking at pro-crastination. Based on a YouGov survey of over 2,000 adults, RateSetter’s ‘Great British Procrasti-nation’ report reveals the true cost of these delay tactics:


1. Brits spend a shocking 218 minutes procrastinating every day

2. This amounts to almost 55 days, each year, lost to procrastination

3. Television tops the list of activities as we spend at least an hour per day watching

4. Procrastinating at work costs British businesses £76 billion per year

5. This is the equivalent of nearly a tenth (8%) of national debt


We all lead busy lives, so it’s understandable that we don’t achieve everything we set out to do. But imagine the progress that could be made if people were to make small changes to curb their procrastination. One in five people (21%) admit that if they stopped procrastinating they would enjoy a better work-life balance.


For these reasons RateSetter has launched their #MakeTodayPay campaign – aimed at encouraging people to kick their procrastination habits and start taking small actions to make a difference to their lives. To find out more visit the Make Today Pay site at www.maketodaypay.co.uk.

Rhydian Lewis, Founder and CEO of RateSetter, said: “We began to look at procrastination due to the sheer volume of people who expressed their dissatisfaction with the poor returns on their money, but who fail to do anything about it … if they stop putting off managing their finances they could reap the rewards.” The same ethos applies to your clutter.
