MONEY: How Much We Spend Annually To Cheer Ourselves Up

posted by Amy James - 


When you're in a bad mood, do you buy stuff to cheer yourself up?  But then you see your bank account balance, which puts you back in a bad mood?  So then you buy even more stuff to feel good again?  It's a vicious cycle : )

According to a new survey, the average American spends $1,652 every YEAR buying stuff to cheer themselves up when they're in a bad mood.  That's roughly $140 a month, or about $32 a week.  And it's close to six figures over your adult life.

The survey also found we spend 155 hours a year making all of those purchases.
