Scary Statistics On Women and Shopping

By  | 

I get it….women love to shop; it goes hand in hand with changing into 10 different outfits, being late for everything and bitchin’ about everything.  So without further ado, I give you 10 scary statistics on female shoppers that will make men cringe.

1)      Women will spend more than eight years of their lives shopping.

2)      During the perusal of retail therapy, women will shop for 25,184 hours and 53 minutes over 63 yrs.

3)      Women will make an average of 90 dedicated trips per year to keep up with their appearances. Shopping for clothes 30 times, shoes 15 times, accessories 18 times and toiletries 27 times.

4)      A total of 100 hours and 48 minutes is spent shopping for the latest fashions and bargains.

5)      Even shopping for the basic feminine hygiene such as deodorant, shower gel, and razors take women an astounding 17 hours and 33 minutes over one year.

6)      It gets better. Polls also show that women go window shopping 51 times a year, spending 48 hours and 51 minutes just looking for their next purchase.

7)      Another 19 trips, or 36 hours and 17 minutes are used to buy gifts for friends and family.

8)      Another 40 hours and 30 minutes is spent shopping for footwear, and 29 hours and 31 minutes looking for accessories such as handbags, jewelry and scarves.

9)      If the average shopping trip were to last a full working day 9-5, that would translate to 3,148 days walking around the shops, or just over 8 ½ years!

10)   Men shop as ‘Hunters’, women shop as ‘Gatherers’.  A woman will buy with the purpose of collecting where a man will be with the purpose of fixing.

As much as I hate to say it…there’s no way around this guys. Women take a more emotional approach to shopping vs. their male counterpart. Women are much more about the engagement and relationship involved with shopping. Whereas men are more about completing the task and getting it done as quickly and easily as possible.  The added bonus would be if there is beer sold near where they are shopping ever better.  ~Cpt.
