February 22, 2018

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 . . .

1.  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?  (???)

2.  Clothing, 53%.

3.  Household items, 33%.

4.  Takeout food and delivery, 29%.

5.  Shoes, 28%.
