Just because we've been home so much doesn't mean we've stopped buying things on a whim: A new survey found impulse spending has JUMPED 51% in the last year. And two-thirds of it was done from home on our phones and computers.
The average American has made 12 impulse buys and spent $276 on them every MONTH. Which is a lot, but that also includes all the impulse buys we make at the grocery store. Here are the top ten types of things we buy on a whim . . .
1. Food and groceries.
2. Things for around the house.
4. Coffee. Like stopping at Starbucks because you feel like it.
5. Toys for our kids.
6. Delivery or takeout when we don't want to cook.
8. Vehicles. (???)
9. Gadgets and tech stuff.
10. Things like massages and other spa services.
