Here we discuss the reasons why people may indulge in excessive shopping this time of year.
Uplift your mood
The cold weather and grey skies are synonymous with a less positive mood, commonly labelled as the “winter blues”. For some, visiting shops during this winter season is a way to uplift their mood.
Marketing may be stronger than you think
The drive to spend is also influenced by the constant adverts and commercials creating a sense of urgency to acquire that particular product at a reduced price. The same can be said for online adverts which appear in front of our eyes whilst browsing from the comfort of our own home, making it all the more easier to buy.
Save and save some more
It is also ideal to buy this January so that you can save in the long term. With the available sales, you will encounter products that are set at lower prices, just for January.
Most men spend their money on gadgets, cars, electronics and clothing. Women, on the other hand, spend most of their money on cosmetics, clothing, shoes, perfumes, cocktails, Gadgets, handbags, and a million other things. Women are proven to be the bigger buyers, however, women also tend to save more money than men.
Women! Can you explain this, please?
