Shopping on your lunch break and buying candy in the checkout lane can really add up . . . apparently to the tune of several COLLEGE EDUCATIONS.
According to a new survey, the average American makes 156 impulse purchases a year. And over the course of our life, we’ll spend 324 THOUSAND DOLLARS on stuff we weren’t planning to buy.
Here are the top five impulse buys we make . . .
- Food and groceries, 71% of us do it. And 3 out of 4 Americans say they’ve bought candy at the register before. That means 25% of us HAVEN’T?
- Clothing, 53%.
- Household items, 33%.
- Takeout food and delivery, 29%.
- Shoes, 28%.
