How to buy a home: ‘Avoid avo on toast’

  • An Australian demographer penned a column in the weekend edition of The Australian that has really upset some millennials across the ditch.

The KPMG partner said that young Australians should spend less on going out for brunch and instead save the money for a home deposit.

In the column Salt bemoans the “evils of the hipster cafe”.

“I have seen young people order smashed avocado with crumbled feta on five-grain toasted bread at $22 a pop and more,” he writes.
