The Average American Makes 12 Impulse Purchases a Month

Man paying with credit card reader in shop

Ya gotta love a good impulse buy. For me, it’s usually something like a candy bar at checkout.

According to a survey, impulse purchases have gone up in the past year (thanks, Internet) and the average American makes about 12 impulse purchases a month! On average, that’s about $276 a MONTH.

Here are the main things we’ve been impulse buying.

  • 1.  Food and groceries.
  • 2.  Things for around the house.
  • 3.  Clothes.
  • 4.  Coffee.  Like stopping at Starbucks because you feel like it.
  • 5.  Toys for our kids.
  • 6.  Delivery or takeout when we don’t want to cook.
  • 7.  Books.
  • 8.  Vehicles.  (How the hell do you just buy a vehicle impulsively?)
  • 9.  Gadgets and tech stuff.
  • 10.  Things like massages and other spa services.
