The average person would be happy if they could get away with only spending $400 on the holidays this year. But it might tick higher than that. Because more than half of us feel pressure to OVERSPEND.
56% of people in a new poll said they felt the need to overspend on stuff last year. Can you guess what the top thing we splurge on is? Here are the top five . . .
- Gifts. 66% of people who felt pressure to overspend said presents were a culprit.
- Food and drinks, 29%.
- Travel, 18%. Like if you feel pressured to fly home for the holidays.
- New clothes and outfits, 16%. For things like work parties and New Year’s.
- Decorations, 14%.
Just over a third of people in the poll said their perfect holiday experience would include spending it at home with ONLY their immediate family.
And here’s some early holiday hum buggery: 26% of people said that having ZERO plans and obligations would be ideal.
