Most of Us Overspend on Food and Clothing
A new survey found that 95% of people say that they go over budget when shopping, but what are the things we spend the most money on?
Food came in first with 58% of people saying that they spend way more than they should. That could be while grocery shopping or out to eat. I'm gonna have to agree with this one, because I overspend on food almost 100% of the time. I get lunch on my way home from work EVERY SINGLE DAY when I could just eat the food I overspent on at the grocery store when I get home. Second place was clothing, with 54%. I also overspend on clothing, because if I think something is worth buying and I DON'T buy it, I just end up thinking about it for days. I've found it's just better to give in.
The rest of the list is as follows:
- Household Items - 28%
- Shoes - 21%
- Entertainment - 20%
